Yesterday Universal Orlando celebrated a milestone for its new Hogwarts Express attraction…it had its millionth rider!
Hogwarts Express opened to the public on July 8, 2014, with the rest of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, and it connects the new Potter area with Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure.
Universal marked the occasion with a special celebration at the station, as you can see in the photo they’ve supplied above. All participants were given free Butterbeer ice cream to celebrate.
Hogwarts Express is included in all 2-park admission tickets and passes. In addition to ferrying guests between the two Harry Potter attractions, it is an attraction itself, featuring immersive window scenes featuring the films’ iconic stars and locations.
Congratulations to Universal Orlando and all the Harry Potter fans for reaching this milestone so fast!
