As we previously reported, the Knight Bus was spotted arriving at its new home – the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Orlando – last week, ready for the new expansion opening this summer. Now we can reveal to you, thanks to Orlando Attractions Magazine, that the purple triple-decker bus has now parked up on the attraction’s replica of the London waterfront.
At the moment, the Knight Bus is parked on the left side of a circle (where in the center of it, a fountain will later on be placed). About its current location and the bus in general, Attractions Magazine said,
“In some concept art released by Universal, the bus is parked on the other side of the fountain, so we’re not sure this is its final resting place. We doubt it will move once the area is open. But we do expect there to be an interactive element to the bus. Universal was recently searching for male actors who could do a Jamaican accent. In the Potter movie, there is a shrunken head hanging inside the bus that talks in a Jamaican accent. We expect the head will be in there talking to guests.”
To check out an overview of the new area of the attraction, take a look at the video that Attractions Magazine also posted:
