New Attraction

Published: February 22, 2014 at 5:09 PM

Hi, Just came back from a trip to Universal/Islands of Adventure. Had a blast, 10-30 minute wait times on almost all attractions except Minions. My question: what will be the new attraction to replace jaws?? Looks like a British city and we could see what looks like a ride in back near Fear Factor-Thanks in Advance. :)

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

That is the expansion of Harry Potter into Universal Studios known as Diagon Alley. There is a train (Hogwarts Express) connecting both parks and the main atrraction in the new area is named Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts. It is a hybrid 3D dark ride and coaster.
