Second Ollivander’s Shop Added to Wizarding World of Harry Potter

HollywoodNews.com: Anyone who has had the chance to visit Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of ‘Harry Potter’ knows that long, long lines are all a part of the experience, and no shop is more a testament to that fact than Ollivander’s Wand Shop. The powers-that-be at Universal must have also realized that, as it is being reported that a second Ollivander’s has been added to accommodate the massive crowds that are eager to find out which “wand will choose the wizard.”

According to Inside the Magic, the second wand shop has been converted from a former employee stock room, and will allow more visitors access to the vast array of wands and other Harry Potter themed merchandise within Ollivander’s. Guests to the theme park, which opened its doors this past June, have been known to stand in line for more than an hour for the experience of being able to choose a wand, just as Harry Potter himself did in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

The only drawback is that the second store does not allow for the 5 minute wand-choosing “ceremony” that is the draw for the majority of Ollivander’s customers. However, those who are willing to forego the interactive experience will spend less time in line to purchase a wand, which will allow for more exploration of other areas of the park.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter held its grand opening in June 2010. The visual representation of Hogsmeade village and Hogwarts’ Castle are from the Harry Potter film franchise, which has released seven films in the eight film series about a boy who discovers he’s a wizard, and is also “The Chosen One” who will defeat the dark lord that murdered his parents. The final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 will be released in theaters in July 2011.
