The countdown to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has started, as Universal Studios Hollywood announces the spring 2016 arrival of the West Coast’s entertainment experience and the introduction of the land’s signature attraction: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey in 3D-HD.

After more than five years in the making, and inspired by J.K. Rowling’s stories and characters and the Warner Bros. films, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood will bring guests the same authenticity and storytelling found at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Japan.

Visitors will be swept into a fully immersive themed land that brings the Harry Potter fiction and films to life with detail and precision.

Like its counterparts, Hogwarts Castle will sit at the heart of the new attraction where the land’s signature ride, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, will take guests on a journey into many memorable scenes alongside Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Traveling by Floo powder, guests will soar high above Hogwarts, partake in a Quidditch match, narrowly escape a dragon attack and have a close encounter with the Whomping Willow.

As excitement builds for the spring 2016 arrival of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, in-park guests at Universal Studios Hollywood are able to experience and purchase authentic merchandise, including wands, robes and other collectibles from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, available within the Features Presentation shop.
