Hogwarts Express: King's Cross Station

Now Departing, London To Hogsmeade™

To ride the Hogwarts™ Express to Hogsmeade™, head to London in Universal Studios Florida™. Enter King's Cross Station and walk straight through a solid brick wall onto Platform 9 ¾™. There, a Hogwarts™ station staff member will be waiting to lead you to your passenger compartment aboard the train.

As you wind your way through the urban outskirts of London into the British countryside, keep watch outside your window. You never know who—or what—you might see flying, swooping, or lurking outside the train before alighting at Hogsmeade™ Station in Universal's Islands of Adventure™ theme park, located next door to Universal Studios Florida™.

Park-To-Park Ticket
To board and ride the Hogwarts™ Express between the two lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, you'll need a Park-to-Park admission ticket. Additional restrictions apply.
