Hogwarts Express - Hogsmeade Station

Hogwarts Express - Hogsmeade Station

An Attraction in Islands of Adventure

Last updated: May 27, 2024

At a Glance

Part of the genius of creating Diagon Alley at USF is that it is connected to Hogsmeade at IOA by the Hogwarts Express, just as in the novels and films. The counterpart to Universal Studios' King's Cross is Hogsmeade Station, which is very neat the entrance and provides pedestrian access to the Lost Continent area.

Go here for a full description of the Hogwarts Express experience.

Because the Hogsmeade Station doesn’t include the cool Platform 9 3⁄4 effect found at the King’s Cross end, you'd expect waits for the one-way trip to be shorter here. Surprisingly, lines can be longer here than at USF on slower days, though King's Cross is the busier end during peak periods. Lines are usually under 20 minutes through the morning, but can build later in the day. Hogsmeade Station also lacks other King's Cross amenities like air conditioning and an in-queue snack stand, though there is a moving carriage (drawn by an invisible thestral) at the exit.

On most days, disembarking guests will be allowed directly into Hogsmeade, less than a minute’s walk away. On peak days when the area reaches capacity, they’ll be directed to the bridge between The Lost Continent and Jurassic Park, where they’ll have to either queue to enter Hogsmeade or obtain a free timed-entry ticket to visit The Wizarding World at a specified time.

If you wish to experience the train, do so before the queue builds in midafternoon. If the line grows very long, guests wishing to ride a second time in one day may be relegated to a slower re-ride queue.
