The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is finally making its way to the west coast, with a new home at Universal Studios Hollywood. Already a popular feature at its Florida location, this Harry Potter World will also have the Hogwarts Castle and the village of Hogsmeade for visitors to explore. The beloved Honeyduke’s and Ollivander’s will also be on the map, and visitors will be able to nosh at the Three Broomsticks and the Hog’s Head Pub. Flight of the Hippogriff will become Universal Studio’s first outdoor rollercoaster, and the Forbidden Journey ride in the castle will feature a Quidditch-inspired 3D experience. So break out your wizarding robes and let the wand choose you—and don’t forget the butterbeer, which will be available at a multitude of kiosks throughout the area.
