Los Angeles: After mesmerising people across the globe for almost two decades through books and films, Harry Potter is now set to enthrall fans at an upcoming theme park at Universal Studios in Hollywood.
Universal Studios Hollywood announced on Tuesday that it will bring the adventures of Harry Potter to life in the spring of 2016, reports ew.com.
Similar Harry Potter theme parks exist in Florida and at Osaka in Japan.
The biggest attraction of the upcoming park will be the signature ride, “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey”, an immersive theme-park 3-D HD spectacular where passengers sport Qidditich-inspired goggles and race through scenes from the films.
“The momentum behind J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world is as strong as ever and we are incredibly excited to bring Hogwarts to Hollywood,” Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, said in a statement.
The park will also feature the “Flight of the Hippogriff” roller-coaster, as well as authentic recreations of Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade Village.
