Dragon Challenge

Theme Park News

Not surprisingly, Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter is expanding once again – this time with the construction of a brand new ride in the England area of the park, Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade.

While Universal didn’t release many details about the new thrill ride, the park did say it will “redefine the category” of roller coasters. “The new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed coaster experiences we’ve ever created.” the company wrote on their blog. “It will combine a new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure…and a few surprises along the way.”

Universal also claims the new coaster will take fans further into the world of Harry Potter with popular characters and creatures. We can only assume that the new ride will visit an area or scene from the films it hasn’t already, and we can’t wait to see what that is.

Unfortunately, to make room for the new attraction, the current coaster, Dragon Challenge, will permanently close on September 5. Its last day of operation will be September 4.

Orlando Fun Tickets will post more details about the coaster as they come available. While we wait, make sure to get in one final ride on Dragons Challenge before it closes. You can find discounted Universal Orlando tickets here on Orlando Fun Tickets.
