What is the best surprise that book and film lovers of Harry Potter can have? That is of course to see their beloved magical places become a reality. Although logically, it is impossible to happen but at least the closest experience they can have is going to a theme park with this attraction. There are already established HP-inspired theme parks in some key cities around the world and another one will soon be unveiled.
According to Collider, a press release was issued last Dec. 8, Tuesday, confirming that The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter located in Universal Studios Hollywood will be open to the general public next year at April 7, 2016, Thursday.
This will definitely serve as a summer escapade to aficionados of the well-loved book and movie series. People from the West Coast won’t need to travel far in Florida to see the same theme part as it will soon be in Los Angeles.
In its press release, they described what the people can expect. It will have a real-life interpretation of the magic-filled places and locations such as Hogwarts and Hogsmeade which will carefully follow the intricate details much to the delight from the fans’ imagination.
The visitors can enjoy in Flight of the Hippogriff which is a family-ride outdoor coaster and the 3D state-of-the-art experience in Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.

To help in spreading the news, Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch) is featured in a promotional video wherein she offered a sneak peek of the attraction, as reported by TIME.
