Harry Potter Expansion
Updated: 1 April 2013 08:8:11 AM
Rumors are flying about the possibility there is a Harry Potter Expansion happening at Universal Studios.
It was announced, December 2011, the JAWS attraction at Universal Studios Florida would be closed permanently and was closed in January 2012.
These rumors were largely supported by Universal's own admission in 2011 that Wizarding World of Harry Potter would go under a "significant expansion" and so the massive project remains a mystery, but could be an expansion of the Harry Potter attraction.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of seven themed areas in the Islands of Adventure theme park at Universal Parks and Resorts.
The flagship attraction is Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey in the recreation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry which takes guests through the halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizards and soaring over the castle grounds.
Unofficially, acknowledged by theme park addicts and hospitality insiders, this may well be an expansion of the Harry Potter world, possibly with a Hogwarts Express to carry passengers between Universal Studios Florida and the original Potter world at Islands of Adventure.
Universal officials have been tight lipped on the plans, but speculation about the area is it may become the "London" side of the Potter story and might include Gringott's coaster, the Leaky Cauldron restaurant the store of dark magic, Borgin and Burkes.
Waiting is all that is left, and for Universal to make an official announcement, however, the rumored opening date is summer 2014.
