Hogwarts Express Reopens After Week of Unexpected Closure at Universal Orlando Resort

The Hogwarts Express at Universal Orlando Resort has reopened after being unexpectedly closed for a week.

It initially closed on January 17 and we later learned this was due to an issue with the attraction’s pull cable. Team Members expected it to be closed for another week, but thankfully it reopened today, January 24, and can once again transport guests between Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.

Team Members were happy to welcome guests back at King’s Cross in Universal Studios Florida this morning.
