Universal Studios Orlando will be opening The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a few weeks time, and today they gave Potter fans their first look at Hogwarts. This is an actual building, not some CGI wizardry like we see in the films.
The area will showcase many locations and buildings featured in the films, such as Ollivander’s wand shop, HoneyDukes candy shop, The Three Broomsticks and The Owlery. There will also be rides such as Flight of the Hippogriff and Dragon Challenge. As for Hogwarts, it will contain Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey which “is a thrilling new state-of-the-art attraction that uses entirely new technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced”.
