Universal Studios has announced that it will be shutting down the
popular Harry Potter attraction, Flight of the Hippogriff.
The ride, which opened in 2010, is located in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade at
Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando, Florida.
The closure of Flight of the Hippogriff is part of a larger plan by Universal Studios
to renovate and expand the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
The park has not yet announced when the ride will close or what will replace it.
The closure of Flight of the Hippogriff is a blow to fans of the Harry Potter franchise.
