The construction of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood has been tormenting Potter fans for the past year, particularly as snow peaked roofs started to appear over building site walls. If you have a particularly beady eye and you’ve been lucky enough to visit the Hollywood park in the last year, you’d have noticed that the project was really starting to take shape. And, finally, today Universal have given us the information we’ve all been waiting for – the park will officially open on April 7th 2016!
We can hardly contain our excitement to see Hogwarts castle lit up to herald the opening of this new park area and to get exploring the magical shops and village of Hogsmeade. Some of the most popular rides at Universal Orlando Resort, including Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Flight of the Hippogiff, are in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, so the park is definitely going to receive a real boost from this magical new themed land. Flight of the Hippogriff will also be Universal Studios Hollywood first family-friendly outdoor coaster. Just one more great reason to visit in our eyes!
