A lot has been happening this week at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. It’s a scurry of activity all around as they’re putting the final touches and getting ready for opening. As you can see above, they’ve taken down the old construction walls and have added these “prettier” walls that have a wide door ready to open. There have been rumors of a soft opening any day now, but no confirmations.
Universal just released this video which offers a peek at some filming for the brand new Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey ride. They’re promising more details on the ride and an opening date announcement at noon next Thursday, March 25.
The Dueling Dragons roller coaster has been closed for a while but it’s reopening tomorrow, March 19. The entrance to the ride will still be back in Jurassic Park, and it’s supposed to still be called Dueling Dragons. It’s not known if it’ll close again before it becomes the Dragon Challenge ride.
