A new "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" roller coaster is coming to Universal's Islands of Adventure.

The "Harry Potter" ride will replace Dragon Challenge, previously known as Dueling Dragons, which has been at Universal since 1999.

Not many details about the roller coaster have been released. The ride is scheduled to open in 2019. 

The Universal Orlando Blog calls it a new generation of thrill ride that will draw you into even more exciting adventures within the wizarding world. 

The Dragon Challenge will close on September 5 with the last day of operation on Monday, September 4 to make way for the all new ride.
