Universal Studios Hollywood opened the ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ last week.
According to Travel Daily, the attraction has been in the pipeline for more than five years.
Universal Studios Hollywood president Larry Kurzweil said, “With over 75 per cent completely reimagined, Universal Studios Hollywood is an entirely new theme park destination and we look forward to sharing everything that the Entertainment Capital of LA has to offer with visitors from around the world.”
Based on JK Rowling’s blockbuster series, the new land centres on Hogwarts Castle with a signature ride called ‘Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey’, as well as an outdoor rollercoaster called ‘Flight of the Hippogriff’.
Themed food and beverage will be available, alongside eight retail outlets direct from the books including Honeydukes, Ollivanders, Owl Post and Zonko’s Joke Shop.
