The Harry Potter Theme Park!


Harry Potter fans will be able to experience the Triwizard Tournament, buy extendable ears and have a wand choose them at a new theme park in the US.

Universal Orlando Resort and Warner Bros. has released first-ever details of the eagerly-awaited "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" attraction, due to open in autumn 2010.

A virtual map reveals a list of featured locations including a replica of the Three Broomsticks and one of Hogsmeade's popular pubs, where visitors will be treated to traditional British fare and have the chance to sip on Butterbeer.

The park will feature theme rides, including the Flight of the Hippogriff, which will simulate a training flight on the magical creature.

Fans of the fast-paced wizard sport Quidditch will have a chance to partake in a simulated Triwizard Tournament, as well as examine Quidditch equipment and even the elusive Golden Snitch at several Hogsmeade shops.

Visitors can enjoy an interactive experience at the famous Ollivanders wand shop, where the wand chooses the wizard.

Zonko's features a joke shop with a collection of tricks and jokes, including Extendable Ears, Boxing Telescopes and Sneakoscopes.

The park is being developed in co-ordination with JK Rowling, the author of the immensely successful books, which have been adapted into equally successful films.

The theme park promises a "completely immersive environment", that recreates the fabled Hogwarts school for wizards that Potter and his friends attend, as well as the surrounding village of Hogsmeade.
