New Universal Orlando Attraction Reaches 1 Million Rider Mark

It seems like only yesterday that the all-new Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley opened to the public... but it was July 8th to be exact.  The immense popularity of the new area is already showing at the Universal Orlando Resort, where the Hogwarts Express has already seen 1 million passengers.  That was fast, really fast.

The Hogwarts Express connects Islands of Adventure, home to the village of Hogsmeade, with the London section of Universal Studios Florida.  From the massive King's Cross station guests can enter Diagon Alley and check out attractions such as Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, shop in stores like the darkened Borgin and Burkes, or grab some delicious butterbeer ice cream.
