The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™
Experience the two uniquely different lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ — one located in each of Universal Orlando’s two theme parks.
Step inside a world where magic is real. Within Universal’s Islands of Adventure® theme park you can visit the iconic Hogwarts™ castle and explore Hogsmeade™ village. And, now open at Universal Studios Florida® theme park, you can enter Diagon Alley™ to enjoy a brand new ride, all-new magical experiences, and more. Get ready to explore more of Harry Potter’s world than ever before!
Explore more of the wizarding world than ever before at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Diagon Alley™, NOW OPEN at Universal Studios Florida®. Enter Diagon Alley™ from the streets of London. Dine at the Leaky Cauldron™, see a wand choose a wizard at Ollivanders™ wand shop, and experience the excitement of a multi-dimensional new thrill ride inside Gringotts™ bank.
Flight of the Hippogriff™
Pass by Hagrid's hut and follow his instructions as you learn the proper way to approach a Hippogriff, which has the head of a giant eagle and the body of a horse.
Then it's time to take a "training flight" aboard the Flight of the Hippogriff™, an enchanting family coaster woven from wicker and decorated with fluttering leaves representing feathers. Bow as you approach the 'real' Hippogriff, and then you're spiraling and diving around the pumpkin patch, and swooping past Hagrid's hut.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™
Enter through the towering castle gates and make your way down the familiar passageways and corridors of Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You'll visit iconic locations such as Dumbledore's office, the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, the Gryffindor™ common room, the Room of Requirement and more.
Then get ready to soar above the castle grounds as you join Harry Potter™ and his friends on an unforgettably thrilling adventure, coming face-to-face with an array of magical creatures! This amazing attraction uses groundbreaking, state-of-the-art technology (and a little magic) to create a one-of-a-kind ride experience.
HARRY POTTER AND THE ESCAPE FROM GRINGOTTS™
Enter Gringotts™ bank beneath the massive fire-breathing dragon at the far end of Diagon Alley™. Inside Gringotts™ you’ll walk through the bank’s grand marble lobby and see goblins hard at work. Then, get ready to take a journey through cavernous passageways that lead deep underground as you climb aboard Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™.
This new, multi-dimensional 3D thrill ride puts you right in the middle of the action as you face the bank’s stringent security measures while navigating the perilous underground vaults. You’ll encounter Harry, Ron, and Hermione along the way, but you’ll have to evade the wrath of malicious villains Voldemort™ and Bellatrix as well as trolls and other creatures who stand between you and a safe return to Diagon Alley™.
FAMOUS DIAGON ALLEY™ SHOPS
Pass through the brick archway and you’ll find yourself in Diagon Alley™, the cobbled street where witches and wizards have gathered to do their shopping for hundreds of years.
