Today, Universal Orlando announced a “new generation of a thrill ride” will be coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the theme park.
Located in the Hogsmeade section of Universal’s Islands of Adventure, the new thrill ride will take you deeper into J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where you will encounter some of your favorite characters and creatures.
Universal says the new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed coaster experiences they’ve ever created. They also say it will be fun for the entire family, so it could possible be kid friendly.
The bad news is it will be located where the Dragon Challenge coaster currently sits, so that attraction is permanently closing. It’s last day of operation will be September 4, 2017.
The new attraction is slated to open sometime in 2019.
What do you think? Are you excited for a new Harry Potter-themed attraction? Are you upset Dragon Challenge is closing? Let us know in the comment.
