Find out when the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hollywood will open!
Pack your bags! The Hogwarts Express to the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hollywood leaves April 7th, 2016. The new park has been long awaited, and now it finally has an opening date! Universal launched two new promotional videos today, one, revealing the grand opening date, featuring Alan Gilmore, the Arts Director of the Harry Potter films, and Evanna Lynch, the actress who played Luna Lovegood in the films. In this video, the two walked the streets of Hogsmeade, Lynch channels her inner Luna and does some magic of her own to help light up the new Hogwarts castle and share the big news.
The other is a television ad, featuring a child at the park, talking about the magic of Harry Potter, and performing magic herself. Check out the videos below:
The new Wizarding World will be very similar to it’s sister park at Universal Studios Orlando, featuring some of the same rides, such as the Flight of the Hippogriff, which will be Universal Hollywood’s first ever outdoor roller coaster, and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, an immersive 3-D ride around the Hogwarts grounds. You can check out a virtual tour of the park here.
April 7th is not that far away, soon enough we will all be sipping butterbeer and wandering around Hogsmeade, and loving every second of it.
