See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Following the successful launch of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando in 2010, Universal Studios Hollywood is finally getting its own Wizarding World in 2016.

Like its Orlando counterpart, the Hollywood location will feature the signature “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” ride that takes passengers soaring above Hogwarts. Unique to Hollywood will be the debut of the 3D ride in high definition (HD) to further enhance the journey. The new Wizarding World will also feature the family coaster, “Flight of the Hippogriff,” and popular retail shops such as Zonko’s Joke Shop and Ollivanders, where kids can purchase wands. The popular Butter Beer will be available in the Hollywood location, with food and beverages available at Hog’s Head pub and Three Broomsticks.

The new Wizarding World is slated to open at Universal Studios Hollywood by spring 2016.
