One of Universal Studios Florida's newest additions, the Hogwarts Express, includes a beautiful themed and immersive queue line that will please everyone, even those who are not easily impressed. In fact, the London side of this attraction (which links two separate theme parks) is an amazingly detailed and faithful reproduction of the actual King's Cross station located in London, England. Come with us, as we take a quick look around this gorgeous environment:

The exterior of this station:

The sign explaining the nature of this attraction (don't let that scare you. It is one of the mildest attractions ever created. If you can ride Walt Disney World's monorail, you can definitely ride this):

Wait time rarely got to this point. it's usually only a 10-minute wait, especially toward the afternoon:

The ticket scanners (You NEED a park-to-park ticket to experience this attraction):

The entrance of the queue line:

Looking from the opposite direction:

Moving along:

Looking forward:

These switchback lead to stairs (or the elevator, for people using wheelchairs and strollers... I mean, prams):

We are going to leave out a few areas of the queue, especially since a specific part involves a special effect that is much more effective in person than through photos (we are referring to the walk through the wall):

The loading area:

Beautiful ceiling:

Time to board!:

The exit area:

Going down:

The exit area (it is located next to the entrance):

Not that I'm complaining (I'm actually very grateful!) ...

But are updates now going to include Harry Potter sections? I hope so!

(At first anonymous) I hope that we would get some WWOHP coverage too, but I wouldn't count on it. It seems we only get teases, even thought the teases are becoming more frequent. Maybe OTPN is slowly changing their views to the boy who lived.

Thanks to both of you for your comments.

That said, our views did NOT change on the matter. We are just showcasing what Universal built in the past two years (and it's all amazing, we can't lie), but we still do not want to advertise Harry Potter and such things. Everyone has personal views. We respect all views, so we expect others to respect ours as well.

That's why we really appreciate your positive attitude. A big "thank you" to all who follow us regardless of what we post.

You guys do an incredible job, no site posts updates as frequently or matches your incredible level of detail. I visit daily.

Also, there's a ton of great Potter coverage already out there so I appreciate the welcome change of focus.
