ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Universal Orlando Resort says the Harry Potter-themed area opening at Universal Orlando Resort this summer will allow fans to ride the Hogwarts Express train and experience the British countryside just as characters did in the book and movie series.

According to a Friday news release from Universal, guests will appear to magically pass through a brick wall and board a train with steam and a whistle.

Riders will have two different experiences — one on the way to the new London-themed area at Universal Studios Park and another on the way to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter area at Universal's Islands of Adventure park.

If fans want to see both parks, a two-park ticket will be required.
