We – as well as the rest of the wizarding world – have been anticipating the opening of Universal Studios’ Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ since it was first announced (you can read our previous posts here and here) and on Saturday, April 7, the doors to the Great Hall will swing open, classrooms will be filled, and the streets of Hogsmeade will be available for everyone – muggles and wizards alike – to explore.
This weekend you’ll finally be able to discover the mysteries of Hogwarts™ castle for yourself, plus visit the shops of Hogsmeade™, and experience pulse-pounding rides and attractions such as the “Flight of the Hippogriff roller coaster” or “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” 3-D adventure that will put you so close to a Dementor, you’ll need to bring a sweater and a strong patronus.

In addition to the amazing attractions, you’ll find plenty to eat, drink, and purchase as you wander the streets of Hogsmeade. Grab some Chocolate Frogs™ at Honeydukes™, choose a wand (or have a wand choose you) at Ollivanders™, and when you’re ready for a feast, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ is where you can enjoy authentic food – like the delicious lemon-herb chicken platter – and drinks – like a pint of Butterbeer from one of many carts located throughout the park – from the Harry Potter™ stories.
Whether you’re into magical spells and mystical creatures, or vanquishing Death Eaters along side your favorite heroes, you’ll be able to find it all and more at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, opening this Saturday, April 7, 2016 at Universal Studios Hollywood℠.
So brush up on your spells, pack your best robes, run on down to Platform 9 3/4 and we’ll see you at the Sorting Hat (come on Hufflepuff!)
