Hogwarts Express Details Revealed by Universal Orlando


There are many things “Harry Potter” fans can ride, drink and experience at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure.” Butterbeer, Hogwarts and Ollivander’s Wand Shop to name a few but for the past three years one thing has been missing – a ride on Hogwarts Express. This summer muggles can take a ride on the famed train at the new Diagon Alley at Universal Studios.

The Orlando theme park recently announced the features for the incredible train, which will take off at Platform 9 ¾ and yes, you will pass through a brick wall to get to the locomotive! Once you do don’t be surprised to see a massive train pull into the station with billowing steam and an authentic whistle calling you to hop aboard.

As you sit in your cabin modeled after the train in the "Harry Potter" film series make sure you look out the window, where you will enjoy a scenic journey through the British countryside as well as some of your favorite Harry Potter characters both good and evil including Hagrid on his motorbike, Buckbeak the Hippogriff, The Wesley twins on brooms, the Knight Bus swerving through London traffic, and even the evil Dementors.

But perhaps the coolest part about Hogwarts Express is the fact that it actually transports guests from “London” at Universal Studios to “Hogsmeade” at Islands of Adventure! It will run in both directions so you can start at either park and still experience the Hogwarts Express magic. But do make sure you have your Universal Orlando Park to Park Tickets to ride the train.

“The ride at the Florida theme park is re-created down to every detail, including individual cabins for the 200 passengers who can fit in the train,” said Michael DoQui, the senior show producer for Universal Creative.

The train is being constructed in conjunction with the much-anticipated Diagon Alley, which will include more “Harry Potter” fun like Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, the Leaky Cauldron, and the new thrill ride, “Escape from Gringotts.”

Hogwarts Express and “Escape from Gringotts’ is scheduled to open at Universal Studios this summer. Stay tuned for more details.
