BREAKING: Entire Area of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade Temporarily Closed at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade is closed this morning at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The land and all three of its rides (Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and Flight of the Hippogriff) have yet to open today.


A sign at the entrance to Islands of Adventure informs guests that Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be open later today.


Some Team Members from Hogsmeade are out in the Lost Continent, advising guests of the closure and directing traffic.


Team Members out front are advising guests to visit Universal Studios Florida for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. No official reason for the closure has been given, but some Team Members are reporting they are being sent home due to a power outage.


Guests were able to board the Hogwarts Express at Hogsmeade Station for a one-way trip to Universal Studios Florida. However, the train has now ceased operations from either station.


Power outages are not uncommon, but the early release of scheduled Team Members may indicate that this will not be resolved quickly.

This is a developing story, so stay tuned for further updates.
