BREAKING NEWS: New roller coaster coming to #WizardingWorldOrlando!
— Universal Orlando (@UniversalORL) 24. juli 2017
Details about the new attraction are being kept heavily under wraps, but Universal says that it will redefine what people know thrill rides to be.
This all-new thrill ride will take you deeper into J.K. Rowling’s [w]izarding [w]orld, where you will encounter some of your favorite characters and creatures. It’ll be unlike anything we’ve ever done before, and it will be fun for the entire family.
The new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed [sic] coaster experiences we’ve created. It will combine a new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure…and a few surprises along the way.
Our 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.
Some sad news to accompany – this means that the Dragon Challenge ride will be closing permanently. The last day of operation is September 4.
