They’re building a replica of King’s Cross station in Florida

We knew there were some rail improvements being done, but moving King’s Cross to Universal Studios in Florida sounds a tad extreme. Before you get too excited, King’s Cross isn’t actually going anywhere, it’s just the people at the Universal Orlando Resort being massive copycats. They’re currently in the process of making their own version of Harry Potter Land complete with Diagon Alley, King’s Cross station and Hogsmeade. Yep, they’re even planning for the Hogwarts Express to take you from Universal Studios to the Islands of Adventure (aka Fake Harry Potter Land), with windows replaced by special video screens showing the ‘magical’ journey from London to Hogsmeade. No, we’re not jealous, we just prefer our own version (minus the weather).

This isn’t the first time someone has remade the station – here’s St Pancras in LEGO.
