Start saving your galleons and make sure you practice apparating, because pretty soon it’ll be time to head to California to visit the newest Harry Potter park, and we now have a look at all it has to offer.
Universal Studios Hollywood has put together a video for the newest The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, set to open next spring in 2016. The video starts at Hogsmeade, where the Hogwarts Express is in the station, and the train’s conductor offers to guide us to the “best stops, places to feast, and even where Harry Potter’s wand chose him.”
We get to see The Three Broomsticks, where we’re told to look out for the house-elves running around, and Hog’s Head, where you might grab a glass of butterbeer. We also get to see Honeyduke’s where you can get your favorite magical candy, or the Owl’s Post, where you can send a real letter with a “genuine Hogsmeade postmark.” There’s also Zonko’s joke shop and Ollivander’s wand shop.
From there you can head to Hogwarts itself, in all its majesty, but we’re told to make sure to stop by Hagrid’s hut where we can learn “to properly greet a hippogriff.”
There are already two other Wizarding World’s of Harry Potter, one at Universal Orlando Resort, and another at Universal Studios Japan, but we’ll gladly take a chance to experience the magical world of J.K. Rowling with that Southern California weather as the backdrop.
