Universal’s Islands of Adventure close Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey for refurbishment

Hey Thrill Seekers,

It’s not often you hear of a major attraction completely closing for refurbishment besides the water rides, but that is exactly what Universal are going to be doing with Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Universal have confirmed that the attraction will be closed next month from the 1st – 18th.


Harry Potter and Forbidden Journey is a motion-based attraction that takes you on a journey with Harry and Ron through the towering castle gates and along the corridors of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and and Wizardry. You’ll even get to visit Dumbledore’s office, the Defence Against The Dark Arts classroom, the Gryffindor common room and many more iconic places.

After you’ve explored the school, you’ll be soaring above the castle on an unforgettable journey coming face to face with some amazing magical creatures from the films. The attraction uses some outstanding technology creating a one-of-a-kind experience.


Some rumours are floating about saying it could be turned into a 3D attraction whereas other are saying it’s not. I suppose we will just have to wait and hear from Universal as to what the refurbishment will entail.

Smiles Included…
