Watch out, Potterheads! The wizarding experience just got a whole lot better.
Harry Potter fans are in no shortage of wizard-themed rides, attractions and parks already, but Universal Orlando Resort is offering one more impossible to miss experience as of this summer. The park will offer a new Harry Potter-themed area, where visitors will be able to magically pass through a brick wall and board a train with steam and a whistle. This according to a Friday press release by Universal Orlando Resort, quoted by the Associated Press.
The world of Harry Potter just keeps getting bigger.
The themed area will feature two connected experiences - one on the way to the new London-themed area at Universal Studios Park and another on the way to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure. The landscaped that visitors will pass through will also feature magical creatures and recognizable characters from the book and movie franchise. Along the way, Hagrid on Sirius Black’s flying motorbike, the Weasley twins on brooms, and the Knight Bus in London traffic will all be spotted.
The two attractions will be separate, so a two park ticket will be required, if fans want to see both in one day. Currently, the ticket is priced at $136.32 for one day for ages 10 and older. Universal Orlando worked with a group of professionals from the Harry Potter films on the new attraction.
