In an update
to my previous newspost, Thierry Coup, senior vice president of Universal Creative, spoke with Fox News recently about the future Wizarding World release.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, as it's officially named, which will include a new marquee ride, new restaurant and shops, and an iconic train trip, will mirror the journey that a young Harry Potter took to become a wizard.
The new area is taking the place of the former Jaws ride, which closed in January 2012. While the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located in Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park, the new Diagon Alley expansion is being built in neighboring Universal Studios Florida. It's the first time a major theme park will have two connecting but separate parks. A working Hogwarts Express train will be built to transport guests between the areas.
