• New Harry Potter attraction coming to Universal Studios

    2013-05-09

    "Harry Potter" fans everywhere rejoiced when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened at Universal Studios several years ago, so a recent announcement of new attractions will certainly come with new celebrations. Universal unveiled plans to build Diagon Alley - the fictional high street in the books' universe - which is set to open in 2014, reports NBC's "Today" show.

    The latest attraction will be more than just a shopping center, however. In addition to visiting landmarks from the book such as Gringotts and Flourish & Blotts, Potter fans can indulge their imaginations by taking the Hogwarts Express from the original attraction to Diagon Alley, much like the characters in the book would have done. Officials say the innovation is the first centrally- themed, multi-park experience in the world.

    "It's a very smart move on their part," industry expert Dennis Speigel told NBC. "They've done so well with it so far that they're just going to ramp it up to the next level."

    Disney is not content to have Harry Potter attractions only in Florida. According to The New York Times, there are also plans in the works to have similar attractions in California.
