A new generation of thrill ride is coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in 2019! We can’t tell you everything about the new ride just yet, but here’s what we can share:
- This all-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. It’ll be unlike anything Universal Orlando Resort ever done before and it will be fun for the entire family.
- The new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed coaster experiences Universal has ever created. It will combine a new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure…and a few surprises along the way.
- The award-winning Universal Creative team is once again collaborating with Warner Bros. and the production design team from the Harry Potter films to bring this new coaster experience to life.
- This ride is going to redefine the category and transport you to thrilling places, drawing you into even more exciting adventures within the wizarding world. It’s going to be the perfect addition to Hogsmeade.
Universal is permanently closing Dragon Challenge on September 5 to make way for this all-new ride. The last day of operation will be Monday, September 4.
In the meantime, make sure you get out to Hogsmeade and take your last ride on Dragon Challenge before it closes.
