Gas leak at Wizarding World causes short evacuation
Construction at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Universal Studios today caused a gas leak that left part of the Lost Continent area closed for a short time. As the Orlando Sentinel reports:
Construction on the forthcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter ride caused a gas leak at about 2 p.m.
As a precaution, Universal evacuated guests from part of the Lost Continent portion of its Islands of Adventure theme park and called the fire department, according to Tom Schroder, a spokesman for Universal Studios.
The leak was capped by 2:15 p.m. and the park since resumed normal operations, Schroder said.
Thanks to Nicole for the tip.
