An Insider Look: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios!
Hey, GirlMoguls! So, when I read the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, I definitely thought to myself, “I wonder what that looks like!” and “I really wish I could see the Great Hall!” Well, dreams do come true.
When you read the fantasy series, did you think of things like this? Didn’t you want to experience the awesome world Rowling created? Warner Bros. and Universal Studios are teaming up to bring the world of harry Potter to life. Author J.K. Rowling has been involved in the project, as has the cast of the movie!
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is debuting this spring, and will involve life-size attractions inspired by the books and movies. The theme park will be an addition to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. It s being built right now in the Island of Adventures side, and will have shopping, rides, and of course, the Hogwarts Castle.
Some of my favorite features of the park include the installment of an entire Hogsmeade, complete with all the stores I’ve always wanted to go. There will be a Honeydukes with fabulous treats like chocolate frogs, a Three Broomsticks serving butterbeer, and even a Zonko’s where you can get crazy magical toys. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will also include Dragon Challenge, a set of two twin high-speed roller coasters, Flight of the Hippogriff, a family coaster, and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, a cool, new attraction featuring brand new technology.
