Harry Potter in Hollywood

The Wizarding World opens at Universal

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened on April 7 at Universal Studios Hollywood capping a five-year revamp of the park. (The Wizarding World at Universal Orlando opened in 2014.) The new attraction features cobblestone streets and snow-capped roofs, merchants at work and a train conductor who welcomes arrivals. Its signature ride is the 3D-HD Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey in which riders wear Quidditch-inspired 3D goggles as they spiral and pivot 360-degrees along an elevated track while experiencing moments shared by Harry and his friends in the classrooms and corridors of Hogwarts. Another big ride is the Flight of the Hippogriff, Universal Hollywood’s first outdoor rollercoaster. At Ollivanders, Makers of Fine Wands since 382 BC, you can buy your own wand. Online park tickets start at US$89 for kids ages 3 to 9; US$95 for ages 10 and up.
