Rumor: “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” Orlando to expand with London-themed Potter attractions
The Internet has certainly been buzzing with rumors relating to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter on both sides of the country. Recently, several sources have reported details of the Orlando-based theme park’s expansion.
Here is what the rumors entail:
Universal Orlando: Phase II of the Wizarding World would include a new section of the park to take over where the Jaws and Amity portion recently closed down. The rumored plans include a reproduction of London, which would house Diagon Alley – a “true” location for Ollivander’s Wand Shop, Gringotts Bank with an amazing new roller coaster cart ride, and the Leaky Cauldron.
Additionally, they would add Platform 9 and 3/4 where patrons would pass through the muggle side and be whisked away to Hogsmeade Station via an actual train ride on the Hogwarts Express.
Don’t forget, we are expecting word today of an official announcement from Universal about their plans for opening a new Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.
