A new Wizarding World attraction, the most detailed and themed coaster ever created by Universal Creative, is coming in 2019. To make way for this attraction Dragons Challenge will have its final day of operation September 4th.

Bullet points from the Universal Orlando blog post:

  • This all-new thrill ride will take you deeper into J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where you will encounter some of your favorite characters and creatures. It’ll be 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.
  • Our award-winning Universal Creative team is once again collaborating with Warner Bros. and the production design team from the Harry Potter films to bring this new coaster experience to life.
  • 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.
While Universal has not detailed what sort of experience this will be, there is steady speculation the attraction will be a motorbike/side car vehicles (like Hagrid's) through the Forbidden Forest. The attraction is expected to be indoors and feature many show scenes and a launched portion.

More details and updates as we hear about them.
