Universal’s Alley expands Wizarding World

Universal Studios Florida’s new Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction, Diagon Alley, expected to open this summer, is sure to be the hottest theme-park ticket of the season. Recreated London landmarks such as Wyndham’s Theater and Leicester Square form the façade for the mysterious Diagon Alley, where wizards-in-training as well as muggles can dine at the Leaky Cauldron, choose a wand from Ollivanders, and encounter Harry, Ron and Hermione on the multidimensional new thrill ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. The new Hogwarts Express, an iconic steam locomotive, will transport visitors holding two-park passes from Hogsmeade to Diagon Alley and back, through London scenery, the British countryside and encounters with characters featured in the Harry Potter films.
