If you’re a die-hard Dragon Challenge (I still call it Dueling Dragons) coaster, then you need to get your rides in before September 4th, 2017 as Universal Orlando announced the closure of the coaster to make way for a new Harry Potter attraction.
Universal describes the new attraction as “unlike anything we’ve ever done before and it will be fun for the entire family.
“The new attraction will be one of the most highly-themed coaster experiences we’ve created. It will combine a new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure…and a few surprises along the way.”
Universal is teaming up again with Warner Bros. and the team who worked on the Harry Potter films to bring the new coaster to life.
According to a press release, “This ride is going to redefine the category and transport you to thrilling places, drawing you into even more exciting adventures within the wizarding world. It’s going to be the perfect addition to Hogsmeade.”
Dragon Challenge will have the final duel on September 4th with a permanent closure date beginning September 5th.
