Scholastic begins Harry Potter site revamp, launches Wizarding World theme park sweepstakes, reveals new park video and mock up

Thanks to Carla and Paula for pointing out that Scholastic's official Harry Potter website is currently closed as it gets a revamp. The site reads:

“New Harry Potter Online Experience coming soon! Come back in two weeks to discover the magic of the Harry Potter books and demonstrate your wizarding skills.”

In addition to this message, Scholastic has opened “The Real Magic of Harry Potter Sweepstakes”! By entering the contest at this link, you will be entered to win one of four grand prize trips to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. The contest is only open to those in the US between the ages of 7 and 14. You have until June 1st to enter!

Their contest page also includes a small new video of the park. To view it, click here and then click the “Play Video” button towards the bottom right of the page. It shows a small family experiencing a store with Quidditch supplies.

Finally, there's this small new piece of concept art depicting the Hogsmeade area of the park. Hopefully Universal will release it in high-res soon!
