Super Nintendo World was perhaps the most anticipated theme park event of 2020. Due to the worldwide pandemic, the land’s opening was delayed in Japan with no set grand opening date.

Universal Orlando continues to be quiet about their upcoming Harry Potter roller coaster.
We’ve been following along with this construction since its earliest stages. Now, we have a first look at what we believe to be official concept art for the themed coaster.
While we always try our best to be as accurate as possible, please note, this is a rumor based article. Nothing is official until it is announced by Universal Orlando.
It appears someone at Universal Orlando has anonymously shared plans for the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion at Universal Orlando with Robert Niles of ThemeParkInsider.com.

This photo of a large model of the expanded part of Fantasyland has been appearing around the Internet this past week. It’s a bit different from the originally leaked blueprints of the redone Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The Pixie Hollow area has been moved back a bit and the Dumbo ride has been moved to just before the current Barnstormer ride. The blueprint also shows a pooh meet and greet area, which isn’t clearly marked in the model.
Neither the blueprint or this photo of the model were officially released by Disney, so there’s no way to tell which is the newer design, but logic says it’s the model. The model also fits along with the officially released concept art, which can be seen in the video below.
