The hype has never been real before. Really, it’s that real. The “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” attraction was originally located in Orlando, Florida. Now, it’s coming to Hollywood, California.
According to USA Today, the Harry Potter attraction, based on J.K. Rowling’s world famous book series & the blockbuster movies that follow afterwards, has been 5 years in the making for the Hollywood location. Now, it is about to come to life in Spring 2016.
According to sources, the “Wizarding World” attraction in Hollywood will be similar to Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Japan.
Visitors will be fully immersed in the themed land as seen in the Harry Potter films and fiction world – including Hogwarts Castle which will be the park’s primary focus.
Guests will be able to watch a Quidditch match through sporting Quidditch-inspired glasses, narrowly escaping a fire-breathing dragon, & have a super close encounter with the Whomping Willow from the books- all in hyper-realistic 3D. Guests who visits the Hollywood attraction can be the first to ride the first ever outside debut coaster: “Flight Off the Hippogriff.”
The location will feature authentic food and beverages from the fictional world with locations from the books including: Three Broomstcks, Hog’s Head Pub, The Magic Neep greengrocers and Butterbeer cups.
That’s not all though. There will be various shops featured at the park from the fictional world including: Honeydukes, Ollivanders, Owl Post, Zonko’s Joke Shop, Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment, Dervish and Banges, Gladrags Wizardwear and Filch’s Emporium of Confiscated Goods.
And if that doesn’t sound exciting, then I don’t know what is! I’m really pumped up for this attraction considering how close is it from where I live!! What are YOU excited for the most? For me personally, I’m just excited about everything because I’m going to be finally immersed in this world that I grew to love as a child & now it’s finally coming close to my home!
