Hogwarts Express attraction coming to Universal Orlando

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Harry Potter fans, it's time to get excited, as it's "all aboard" the Hogwarts Express.  

FOX 35 has received new pictures from Universal Orlando showing a locomotive being lowered on to some tracks.  It is going to eventually connect Islands of Adventure to Universal Studios at the Orlando attraction.

The train is more than just a means of transporting guests from one park to another.  It's going to be an actual attraction.

"The train will take guests from the new London/Diagon Alley expansion in the former Jaws area at Universal Studios Florida to the original Hogsmeade area in Islands of Adventure, and vise versa," says JeniLynn Knopp with Orlando Attractions Magazine.  "The experience is rumored to give guests the feeling of traveling through the countryside on the way to Hogwarts/London with some surprises along the way"

This new Hogwarts Express though is not to be confused with the locomotive that has been at the entrance to Hogsmeade since the Wizarding World opened in 2010.

Guests will still have to purchase a 2-park ticket to get access to both parks.
