Win an Around-the-Globe “Harry Potter” Trip of a Lifetime!
SON OF A BANSHEE! In a very unexpected – and intensely exciting – announcement, Universal Studios Hollywood has decided to treat one very, VERY lucky Harry Potter fan and three of their friends to the trip of a lifetime.
To celebrate the grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hollywood on April 7, 2016, the park is giving away an around-the-globe ticket. The winner will attend the grand opening in Hollywood, and they will also be whisked off to Universal Studios Japan to explore Hogsmeade and the Black Lake. The winner will then go to Universal Orlando Resort to visit the one and only Diagon Alley, and also to London to visit the original home of the Harry Potter films, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter!
We are over the moon about this announcement and hope that you are too! Details on how to enter can be found over on TripAdvisor, which is partnering with Universal on this amazing promotion. Best of luck, Potterheads!
