Video tour of Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey queue – First look at Hogwarts' founders

Universal has released a new video featuring Mark Woodbury, president of Universal creative, talking about and showing off parts of the queue for the new Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

You’ll see the Portrait Gallery room with the first ever look at Hogwart’s four founders – Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw. Then he’ll take you into Dumbledore’s office, finally heading into the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom.

Along the way he explains part of the plot for the ride. For more details on the ride and the whole experience inside Hogwarts Castle, see our previous post.

  1. I really can’t wait for this to open…I believe that this is going to be the best thing that Islands of Adventure has to offer at Universal Orlando

  2. I haven’t been to Universal in years. I think it might be time to make the trip. I just have to see Harry Potter.

  3. Really wish I could go close to opening, I have a feeling (based off of the queue destruction I’ve seen at Halloween Horror Nights) that some of the finer details will be gone before I get to see it :(.
