Meaning more roller coasters, dragons, a working Hogwart’s Express, more places to shop and more places to eat!
Keep reading to check out concept art and find out what you can expect when the expansion opens this summer. (In case you didn’t notice, we’re very excited!)
First up the park is getting a new ride which Universal is saying is even better than the fabulous Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, specifically the family fun ride: Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
You know, because Gringotts is basically a roller coaster already.
The first things visitors will see in Diagon Alley is the Knight Bus, before passing through a brick wall and into the expansion.
New stores include: Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes (joke shop), Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions (clothing and costumes), Magical Menagerie (stuffed animals), Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment (wizarding essentials), Quality Quidditch Supplies (do we really have to explain this?), Scribbulus (writing instruments) and Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour (again, really?).
Even more exciting, they are actually building a Knockturn Alley complete with Borgin and Burkes, for all your Dark Arts needs!
There’s also a working Hogwart’s Express which is said to take you from park to park, although it doesn’t say which parks.
As for the existing Hogsmeade section, Honeydukes will be expanding and the park will be removing Zonkos because who needs that when the Weasley’s have their own joke shop?
