Universal Orlando has announced the thrill ride Dragon Challenge at Universal’s Islands of Adventure will be closing in September 2017 to make way for a new Harry Potter-themed attraction.
The coaster was originally known as Dueling Dragons, and was one of the main attractions when Islands of Adventure opened in May 1999.
We’re getting closer to the opening of Cobra’s Curse at Busch Gardens Tampa, and the coaster is now in the testing phase.
The theme park has released a great P.O.V. video showing what the final ride will be like. Are you ready?
It’s only a matter of months until The Incredible Hulk Coaster reopens after a major revamp, and this week Universal Orlando has revealed some relaunch details.
The first big change is the entrance to the coaster. As you enter the ride, you’ll pass underneath a towering figure of The Hulk, using his colossal strength to hold up pieces of the coaster’s track. These pieces are actually salvaged from the ride’s original track.
