Here’s a first look at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Hollywood
We’re just a few short months away from the long-awaited opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. The real-life interpretation of Harry’s world is set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood this coming spring, and to get us even more excited, Universal Studios has released a video giving us major FOMO.
The video features the Hogwart’s Express conductor gives us a tour of Hogsmeade Village, guiding us through familiar location such as Ollivander’s Wand Shop, Three Broomsticks and Honeydukes. We definitely can’t wait to finally try butterbeer, yum.
According to Mashable, the park appears to be set up almost identically to the Orlando location. However, the Hollywood location will feature include an all-new attraction, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey in 3D, for the first time in the United States. There will also be a new family-friendly coaster, Flight of the Hippogriff, in which muggles will have tame the magical beast before they can ride.
If the video doesn’t give you enough of a taste, you can check out their online HQ to hold you over until next spring. Universal Studios has promised “a series of virtual videos” to roll out ahead of the opening, so you can look forward to more sneak peeks!
