Hogwarts Express Reopens At Universal Orlando

The Hogwarts Express

Hogwarts Express was down for about a week as there was an issue with the ride pulley, but it appears that the attraction is once again open.

If you are unfamiliar with what the Hogwarts Express is, it’s the train attraction that transports guests between the Harry Potter Locations at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.

Travel between King’s Cross Station in the London area of Universal Studios Florida and Hogsmeade™ Station in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Each way is a different experience. From the thrill of walking through Platform 9 ¾™ to seeing characters and creatures featured in the films, this is not your everyday train ride.

To ride you do need to have a ticket that allows you to hop parks.

Good news if you are visiting Universal Orlando today!
