Universal Orlando’s Hogwarts Express Reopens After Refurbishment

While we’re not-so-patiently waiting for the return of the Walt Disney World Railroad, another theme park has welcomed back its own train.

The Hogwarts Express is an iconic part of Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. However, guests who have visited the park recently may have noticed the attraction was closed for refurbishment. Luckily, the closure was short-lived, and the attraction has reopened!

The Hogwarts Express began its refurbishment on June 9th and it was only scheduled to be closed until June 18th. We’re happy to report that the Hogwarts Express reopened on time and is back for guests to enjoy!

We’re glad to see this refurbishment finish up so quickly, as Universal’s other refurbishment for Revenge of the Mummy is already half a year in!
