Universal Orlando Resort has conjured up something truly magical for fans of the Wizarding World. Today, they announced an exciting expansion to their much-anticipated theme park, Universal Epic Universe, set to open in 2025. This expansion will include a new Harry Potter-themed world, bringing the enchantment of 1920s wizarding Paris and the British Ministry of Magic to life.
The announcement has sparked excitement among fans, reminiscent of the words of Severus Snape: “Control your emotions!” The Universal Epic Universe promises to be a spectacular experience, featuring five new immersive worlds. These worlds will be accessed through Celestial Park, a central hub designed with an ethereal mix of lush gardens and shimmering waters.
Among the new attractions, guests will find themselves stepping through majestic portals to worlds like Super Nintendo World, How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk, and Dark Universe. A highlight for Harry Potter enthusiasts will be The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic, offering a chance to explore deeper into the wizarding world, including both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.
Universal Orlando and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment are extending an invitation to fans to explore these new realms. Notably, Celestial Park, the heart of Universal Epic Universe, is not just a beautifully designed space but also a portal to these fantastic worlds. The design hints at connections between the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises, with elements like the Elder Wand incorporated into the park’s concept art.
Visitors to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic can expect a blend of iconic British Ministry of Magic imagery and the charm of 1920s wizarding Paris, as seen in the Fantastic Beasts films. This unique combination promises a thrilling experience for first-time visitors and seasoned fans alike.
Universal Orlando Resort already boasts two existing Harry Potter lands – including attractions like Hogwarts Castle, Diagon Alley, the Hogwarts Express, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and more. These have set a high bar for immersive experiences, and the new expansion is expected to raise it even further.
