New Details on the Wizarding World Expansion

Mugglenet has received new information concerning the rumors of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion:

We were told that the Hogwarts Express will indeed be the link between the two parks, and in fact, there will be THREE trains running on monorail type tracks. There will not be windows on the train, but in fact video screens, where the riders will watch one of six movies that were filmed by the cast (including Helena Bonham-Carter) months ago. The ride will effectively link The Wizarding World to the alternate park at Universal Studios, encouraging fans to inevitably buy tickets to both parks in order to enjoy the full Harry Potter experience.

Also, it was confirmed, exclusively to MuggleNet, that Gringotts will IN FACT be a high speed rollercoaster involving carts and will delve deep down into the bank (dragons, in fact, are bound to be encountered!)

Mugglenet has also confirmed that there will be an official announcement concerning the expansion in four to six weeks.

Many thanks to Mugglenet for finding out more about our favorite theme park!

Sounds like fun. I just hope that the Gringotts cart ride doesn’t involve literally being drenched by the Thieves’ Downfall!

You really should, Won. It’s great fun. This may sound silly, but when I first spotted Hogwarts Castle on the horizon while driving on the Interstate through the middle of Orlando, tears came to my eyes. It’s as close as we’re ever likely to get to having it be real.

that is exactly what I thought a Gringotts ride should be since they starting building the original park in the first place!! There should also be a flying car ride as well. I can think of more. just need a little time to think about it.

@WeenyOwl : So did I, we walked into the park and I saw just the top of Hogwarts and my eyes welled up :’D

It is great that they are adding to the Harry Potter park, but unfortunate it will be part of a different park. It is already very expensive for the one park (the average family couldn’t afford it, I can’t afford it!)Then to have to buy tickets for 2 parks!! Just crazy!
