Hogwarts Express

Has anyone heard where you will board the Hogwarts Express in the WWoHP (IoA side) when the HP expansion is done in US?

Just trying to picture it all...

I believe the station is being built somewhere between Dragon Challenge and the Sinbad show.

The new station is being built towards the rear side of Sinbad. You will make some close fly bys with Dragon Challenge. Lush landscaping will hide Sinbad.

Go to www.orlandounited.com for up to date aerial views.

Here's a direct link to one picture ...http://www.orlandounited.com/forums/...126#post344126

The Hogwart's Express was hoisted up on the tracks yesterday, it's easily seen from the "Evil Dead" haunted house line.

Uniersal posts some photos on their facebook page.

This is going to be so cool - but we are going in a month.

Oh, well, there is always next time!

The ride is out in the open however the carriages are to have screens as Windows to give you the feel of travelling through the countryside

The other rumour is there will be a dementor attack during the journey

All the above are strong rumours I have found out

I have to admit I'm so excited to experience this and the WWOHP expansion. I'll hopefully be there next October! Thanks for the link and great photos of Hogwarts Express!

How will the train turn around?
Is there a turntable or loop?

ok that makes sense ( duh, I think I previously read that.)

so is this one big loop? or is straight back & forth?
not too long of a trip.
different themeing in the windows for each direction?

& I figure then if you want a round trip, you gotta get out & stand in another really long line do you think it will have really cool queue themeing? or just standing in train lines

Theming in the stations is supposed to be amazing. There are two trains, actually, that will move between the two stations.

The guy who drove us to the airport last week pointed out the Cabana Bay construction to us and told us that the Hogwarts Express train would take guests from that hotel to the park. Don't know if I believe him, but that would certainly be nice! Particularly if it took you directly to Hogsmead, since my daughter commented about having to walk to the back of the park pretty much every morning!
