Harry Potter theme park scheduled to be opened in early spring. It is estimated to have cost upwards of £160 million. Guests could have a tour of Hogwarts Castle, a visit to Ollivander’s wand shop and the chance to drink some real-life butter beer. Following in November, ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter‘ on the same release of the last film in the series, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.
Guests could experience the iconic whistle that announces the arrival of the Hogwarts express into Hogsmeade Station. Fire-Whiskey and pumpkin juice will be on offer, along with “traditional British food fare.”
There will be also three roller-coaster rides, but Universal are still keeping the biggest and best one under wraps.
Flight of the Hippogriff is described as a family-orientated ride that replicates a Hippogriff – the half-horse, half-eagle beast from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – training flight over Hogwarts castle.
“We are excited to share with fans a first glimpse into the truly enchanted world we are bringing to life with all of our partners at Universal Orlando Resort.” The park has already received the approval of the stars of the film series Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson and they have both visited the park. Harry Potter creator JK Rowling has said: “The plans I’ve seen look incredibly exciting, and I don’t think fans of the books or films will be disappointed.”
