Universal's Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey just got more magical with a major upgrade. 

According to a blog post by Universal Orlando, the ride is now equipped with new 4K-HD projection, which will make the imagery even more clear and realistic.

Besides the enhancement to the screens, nothing else has changed about the attraction. Attendees will still ride along with Harry Potter, but beware, Muggles, the Dementors will feel super real, so prepare to be frightened.

In other Universal news, the company accidentally leaked the name of the park's new show "Universal's Cinematic Presentation – Epic Cinema Under the Stars," and then quickly removed it from their site.
