A new Harry Potter themed area opening at Universal Orlando Resort this summer will let fans ride the Hogwarts Express train and experience scenery and characters from the book and movie series.

Furthermore, muggles will be able to turn their hand to magic, as they pass through a brick wall and board through the train.

The attraction will feature two experiences, one on the way to the new London-themed area at Universal Studios Park and another coming to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

During the ride, characters and cratures from the book will be spotted, among them Hagrid, the Weasley twins and the Knight Bus, reports the Huffington Post.

The new attractions have been developed in partnership between Universal and a group from the Harry Potter films.

Fans wanting to visit both parks can do so for the price of $136.32 for one day for kids aged ten and under.
