As of today, the Hogwarts Express attraction is back up and running in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando. The ride was closed last week for an unknown reason with many speculating the ride needed maintenance of some kind. Right now, the ride is shown as open on the Universal Studios Orlando app, boasting an insane wait time (that we hope is just a glitch!).
