A whole generation of kids – and their parents – have grown up with the magical tales of Harry Potter and his friends, and now that magic is heading to Universal Studios Hollywood, due to open in the northern spring 2016.

“The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™” at Universal Studios Hollywood will bring the same authenticity and storytelling found at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Japan and is expected to attract Harry Potter fans and visitors from all over the globe for decades to come.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

Scenes that came to life so vividly in the Harry Potter books have been recreated on a breathtaking scale in Orlando and Japan and soon in Hollywood!

Hogwarts Castle1

Hogwarts castle will sit at the heart of “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” where the land’s signature ride, “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™” will take guests on a journey into many memorable scenes alongside Harry, Ron and Hermione. Travelling by Floo powder, guests will soar high above Hogwarts, partake in a Quidditch match, narrowly escape a dragon attack and have a close encounter with the Whomping Willow.

Sporting Quidditch-inspired 3D goggles, guests will venture through journeys experienced by Harry and his friends, spiralling and pivoting 360-degrees along an elevated ride track on a whirlwind adventure of a lifetime.

Also within “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” the enchanting family coaster, Flight of the Hippogriff will debut as Universal Studios Hollywood’s first outdoor coaster.
