Universal Orlando to expand The Wizarding World of Harry Potter


Universal Orlando have released more details on the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  The planned park features King’s Cross Station, Diagon Alley, Knockturn Alley and Gringotts Wizard Bank.  Several new shops have been announced, including Ollivander’s, Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes, Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions, Magical Menagerie, Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Scribbulus, the Leaky Cauldron, Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor and Borgin and Burkes.

Two new rides were also revealed: a train ride on the Hogwarts Express from London’s King’s Cross station (located in Universal Studios Florida) and Hogsmeade station (located in Universal’s Islands of Adventure), and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, an adventure ride through the Gringotts vaults.
