Oh! Oh! Oh! The new Harry Potter Theme Park opens at Universal Orlando next spring, but they’ve just released a sneak peek at some of the attractions. Among them:

  • Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey: A high-tech ride that takes happy fans whizzing through an immense Hogwarts Castle and its rooms.

  • Hogsmeade Station: The entrance to the park goes through the Hogsmeade railroad station.
  • The Dragon Challenge: A roller coaster thrill ride inspired by the Triwizard Tournament.
  • The Flight of the Hippogriff: A family-paced roller coaster.
  • And shops and eateries inspired by the books, including Honeydukes, Ollivander’s, Zonko’s and the Three Broomsticks. And yes, you can buy Quidditch supplies at Dervish and Banges.
