As with any kind of rumour, this information should be considered unofficial until Universal Orlando officially confirms.
According to Theme Park Tourist, a “notable” rumour suggests an expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley could potentially replace Fear Factor Live at Universal Studios Florida.
“The most notable of these rumours of an expansion to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Due to Fear Factor’s close proximity to Diagon Alley, this would be an ideal location for the long-rumoured Ministry of Magic to be incorporated into the park and would help cut crowds in the main street of Diagon Alley”Theme Park Tourist
An additional quote can be found below:
“A Harry Potter VR [Virtual Reality] attraction has been a possible addition to Universal’s roster since the announcement of Epic Universe. Originally, it was thought the rumoured ride would be a staple of the new Epic Universe park, but due to construction delays from the pandemic, park officials may have decided to change their approach and place it in one of the existing parks instead.Theme Park Tourist
