Spend a Virtual Day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Missing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Even though travel is paused for now, you can still keep the magic and adventure going at home! Here are some ways to have your own virtual day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Explore Magical Attractions

Take a virtual visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter thrilling and immersive attractions!

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Join Hagrid as you fly far beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle on a thrilling roller coaster ride that plunges into the paths of some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures, from centaurs to Cornish pixies to blast-ended skrewts!

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

This adventure takes guests through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As you pass through Dumbledore’s office, hallways filled with talking portraits, and a Hogwarts classroom with three familiar faces, you will discover the story you’re about to star in. 

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts

Located deep within Gringotts Bank (which itself is hard to miss with the fire-breathing dragon sitting on top), this fully immersive ride takes guests right into the story of Harry Potter, just as Harry, Ron, and Hermione are attempting to break into Bellatrix Lestrange’s vault in the bank in pursuit of a Horcrux.

Hogwarts Express

This beautiful recreation of the famed train that takes wizards and witches from Platform 9 3/4 in London to Hogwarts now takes guests on the same journey. Guests can board in Hogsmeade, or in Diagon Alley at Universal Studios, to see Hogwarts, London, and a few favorite characters outside the train windows.

Plan Your Next Trip
