Islands of Adventure area closed for Harry Potter construction

Posted Monday, July 14, 2008 11:54 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Last week Universal closed the Flying Unicorn ride, the Enchanted Oak Tavern restaurant, the Dragon's Keep store and the Alchemy Bar. All will be refurbished with new themes related to the Harry Potter attractions area, set to open in late 2009 or early 2010. Closing the path and small footbridge that connected the theme park's Jurassic Park and Last Continent areas forced the creation of a new, temporary bridge for foot traffic across a cove in the park's lagoon.

rollergator's avatar Gotta admit, I've been trying to keep an eye on things down in that area for the past few visits, and they've done a good job of keeping everything AWAY from the guests. Only good look at the construction area was by looking backwards on the lift of Ice...but if I'm waiting thru the DD queue in the Summer, I am riding Fire..... ;)

Still predicting that "the line" between LC and WW is going to be pretty blurry...

delan's avatar Saw the fences yesterday as well. The dragons area looked a little claustrophobic, as it was just packed with people who didnt know the area was closed off. In other news, Fire was as good as always. I lost my phone in on my third ride, but it was all worth it. At least this justifies me getting the iphone. I heart DD!
