“Harry Potter” theme park coming to Southern California
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: And this is how the “Harry Potter” legacy will live on: Through theme parks.
Now that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida has ironed out its kinks (or the most part, from what I’m hearing), plans are being revealed to expand the Potter experience to the West Coast with a second attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Sources tell The Wall Street Journal that the Southern California park will closely resemble the Florida facility, with a replica of Hogwarts Castle, rollercoasters, and themed restaurants that take their cue from J.K. Rowlings’ award-winning novels.
And if the idea takes off, the sky’s the limit, as WSJ report that similar parks could be opened “in such foreign territories as Japan, Singapore and Spain.”
