    Harry Potter expansion opening in 2014

    Where the original section of the Wizarding World was modeled on Hogsmeade and Hogwarts, the new section is Diagon Alley, located in London in the Harry Potter books and films.
    To travel from one part of the Wizarding World to the other, visitors will ride the Hogwarts Express. The expansion will open sometime in 2014.
    Universal also finally confirmed the marquee attraction at the Diagon Alley section will be based on Gringotts bank. Harry Potter fans will recall the coaster-like journey Harry, Ron and Hermione took through Gringotts in The Deathly Hallows, which seemed perfect for a theme park attraction.
    While Universal notes that the Diagon Alley section will feature shops and a restaurant, it’s not clear if there will be additional rides beyond the Gringotts coaster.
    There were reports last year that actors from the Harry Potter films, including Rupert Grint and Helena Bonham Carter, have shot new footage for the expansion. This footage could be used in the Hogwarts Express, the Gringotts attraction or possibly both.

    The good people at Screamscape, a reliable source for theme park information, has heard from one of their sources that an announcement concerning the Wizarding World of Harry Potter‘s rumored Diagon Alley and London waterfront could arrive in five to six weeks.

    That means the Harry Potter Wizarding World expansion announcement – which we hope will include celebration festivities and concept art – may be made in mid to late June.

    Rumors say that the Orlando Wizarding World expansion will feature Diagon Alley, a London waterfront, a working Hogswarts Express, and a Gringotts thrill ride.

  5. Apparently Universal does have plans for the train. Found a rumor report on another site. Perhaps a 4-D type experience. I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere.


  6. Maybe something like this...


  7. Any thoughts to the windows on the train actually being screens with HP content on the trip so as to make it a better experience?
    I haven't heard anything, but this would make a lot of sense!
