Reader Matt McDonough sent along some photos from his recent trip to Orlando, showing the current state of the upcoming Harry Potter-themed roller coaster under construction at Universal's Islands of Adventure.
As has become routine for new projects at Universal Orlando, the resort hasn't announced much about this coaster during its construction, although the detail is becoming apparent before our eyes. This coaster will feature launches and indoor elements, including what looks like a Verbolten-style track drop. It will load in the old Dueling Dragons/Dragon Challenge building, although that structure is getting a dramatic retheming. From there, it's a wild ride through the Forbidden Forest, in between the village of Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts Express station.
The as-yet-officially-unnamed coaster will open next year, boosting the popularity of the SeaWorld parking lot... because that's where we expect the queues for this and Star Wars Galaxy's Edge to meet in Christmas 2019.
