Harry Potter first entered our hearts in book form, then hit the big screen in delightful movies, and finally, Hogwarts heads to Hollywood as the new theme park The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens April 7. Don your robes, have wands at the ready (not in back pockets, we don’t want any blasted buttocks, as Moody would remind us) and get ready to enter a magical world. If you can’t wait until April, flip through to catch a sneak peek of what’s in store.
What Would Wizards Eat?
Speaking of spending your Gringott’s savings, when you’re hungry, it’s time to enter Hogsmeade for a stop at either the Three Broomsticks for a big bite or Hog's Head Pub for a drink and a snack. If you’re hungry, there’s bangers, shepherd's pie, eggy bread and sticky toffee pudding at the Broomsticks, and you can finally try (non-alcoholic) Butterbeer, which tastes like a sweet butterscotch float, at Hog’s Head. There’s also harder stuff like mixed drinks and special beers, like the Dragon's Scale lager.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood opens on April 7, 2016. Admission is part of the ticket price for Universal Studios. Ticket prices vary depending on the day. Check their website for details, and be sure to check back here at Red Tricycle for our tips and wizarding tricks for getting the most fun out of your visit as soon as the park opens.
