Today marks the grand opening of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Wizard World of Harry Potter! Check out Christina Radish and Haleigh Foutch’s behind-the-scenes preview!
The highly anticipated Wizarding World of Harry Potter officially makes its debut at Universal Studios Hollywood in April. The all-new immersive land pays attention to the tiniest of details, ensuring that no matter how small the nook or cranny, you feel as though you have been transported to Hogsmeade.
On February 16th, Collider got a sneak peak, as both myself and Haleigh Foutch explored what this new attraction has to offer while they were conducting technical rehearsals for the lucky guests in the park that day. After partaking in frozen Butterbeer on a very hot day, feasting at Three Broomsticks and picking up Butterbeer fudge at Honeydukes for dessert, we photographed every inch, from the wands in Ollivanders to the train station to the corridors of Hogwarts castle, and everything in between.
Check out our photo gallery of exclusive images, and stay tuned for continued coverage leading up to the April 7th grand opening.
