Hogwarts Express, Universal

UPDATE September 20 - Guests visiting Universal Orlando will be pleased to hear that the Hogwarts Express reopened at both Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure yesterday after being unexpectantly closed for 6 days. Universal has not given a specific reason for this closure but it is believed to be due to a power outage. 

The Universal App is currently stating that the Hogwarts Express - King's Cross Station will open at 12PM today and the Hogwarts Express - Hogsmeade Station at Universal's Islands of Adventure will open at 9AM. We always advise checking the App on the day of your visit to see the wait times and to see if any attractions have unexpectantly closed. We are not expecting any further closures for the Hogwarts Express in the near future but we will keep you up to date on our news and Facebook page.

September 13 - The Hogwarts Express has now appeared on the official Universal website refurbishment list for both Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure with a note saying "Closed for maintenance" next to it.

Now, this is unlikely to be scheduled maintenance as it has appeared very suddenly. There have also been no dates given as to when we can expect to see the Hogwarts Express reopening.

The Universal Orlando Resort app it is currently listing Hogwarts Express - Hogsmeade Station and Hogwarts Express - King's Cross Station as closed.  

The Hogwarts Express was closed back in January when the pull cable snapped and Universal had to wait for a replacement part. There has been no official announcement as to the reason why the Hogswarts Express is currently closed for maintenance. We will keep you posted on further details as soon as we get on our news and Facebook page.
