    New ride to replace Jaws

    Does anyone have any updates on what is going to replace the area where Jaws was located? I have heard it wad going to be a connection to Island of Adventures and feature additional Harry Potter area and rides.

    The rumor is more Harry Potter. However, nothing has been officially announced yet

    The rumor is a big Gringotts Bank ride through the vaults and a large HP themed restaurant.

    There was also talk of an HP train ride linking the two parks but those rumors seem to be dying off now.

    I know it's a long shot but does anyone have a rough idea when the new attraction will be up and running? We usually go to Florida every two years for 3 weeks but have decided to return in 3 years this time (2015) hoping the new attraction (Harry potter?) will be up and running by then.

    I'd be very surprised if it wasn't up by then. I was in fl in may, and jaws was already shutdown then.

    Where are they going to put the new Transformer ride? I've seen the video of it from Universal.

    It is going to be in the area past Shrek and before you get to New York theme. Going to open next Summer.

    I myself can't wait. It's crazy that a ride that was announced couple weeks ago will be open in less than a year.

    Yes...for a few years now. And honestly, I like the HP section better

    I loved Jaws too but it closed in early 2012 for the construction of Diagon Alley.
