Harry Potter theme parks opens in Florida

$200 million park has a predicted 5 hour wait

If hippogriffs, Twiward Tournament and Ollivander’s wand shop sounds familiar to you, then the just-opened Harry Potter theme park in Florida may be your next vacation destination. The 20-acre Wizarding World is within the Islands of Adventure complex in Orlando Florida. In it includes Harry Potter favourites including a Hogwarts Express train and Zonko’s joke shop. The park was designed in close collaboration with Harry Potter author, JK Rowling as well as the production designer and supervising arts director of the Harry Potter film crew. However, the waiting times are predicted to be formidable—queuing time is predicted to be up to five hours.
