The countdown to Spring 2016 slowly continues as Universal Studios Hollywood readies their most anticipated attraction ever, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
The new image, which depicts a wand-wielding Harry Potter in the foreground with a bustling snowcapped Hogsmeade village and a spectacular view of the iconic Hogwarts castle in the background, captures the spirit of this dynamic new immersive environment as the theme park readies for the West Coast’s debut of the “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.”
More than five years in the making, and inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters that were brought to life in the Warner Bros. films, “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” will be masterfully recreated with impeccable detail as a real world interpretation at Universal Studios Hollywood. “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” will be faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including Hogwarts castle which will serve as its iconic focal point.
Guests visiting Universal Studios Hollywood today will notice that the land seems mostly complete as construction heads indoors as finishing touches are added to Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, the signature ride of the new land, as well as the brand new Flight of the Hippogriff roller coaster. The first outdoor roller coaster at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Recently scaffolding had been removed on the beautiful new Hogwarts Castle structure as well.
Spring 2016 cannot come soon enough!
