Calling all wizards, witches, and Muggles! For the most magic-enthused of you, there’s a brand new Harry Potter-themed ride coming to Universal Studios in Orlando. There are currently no specifics for the ride itself — which will be debuting in the Hogsmeade section of the park — though we do have some small details about it.
The team behind the project is collaborating with Warner Bros. and the same production team behind the Harry Potter movies, to bring this rollercoaster to life. The ride will feature some very familiar faces and the coaster will be among the most highly-themed rides that Universal has ever done. It will have a strong emphasis on storytelling and high-octane adventure.
For those who love the Dragon Challenge ride (formerly called Dueling Dragons) that currently resides in Hogsmeade, you’d better buy your pass before September 4th, because that’s when the ride will be permanently shut down to make way for this new thrilling rollercoaster.
