Of all the memorable moments in the Harry Potter film series, the first visit young Harry takes to Ollivander’s Wand Shop is truly magical: from the bell ringing as he enters the dimly lit store to the moment the wand ‘chooses’ Harry, the scene draws the viewer into his new wizarding world. That experience will be had first hand by visitors to the upcoming amusement park at Universal Studio in Orlando, Florida. The ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ will have a unique and interactive attraction with the wand shop as part of the theme park opening this spring.
When the guest enters the wand shop to speak with the wand keeper, he or she will be asked a series of questions to start the matching process.
“The questions that will be asked from the wand keeper to the wizard are very individual, very tailored to each person based on their birth date and other questions which will determine the kind of wood and kind of narrow down the choices of wands,” [VP of Creative Development, Thierry] Coup shared.
From there, the wand keeper will offer the guest a series of wand options until the right match is found. Like in the “Harry Potter” story, a series of “magical mishaps” will occur before the right wand is found.
What more could you want from your immersion in the world of Harry Potter? Butter beer of course! That will be available too at a Hogsmeade tavern. Check out the vid with Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton giving you their impression on the park.

Triwizard Tournament Dragon Challenges, Flight of the Hippogriff, Olivander’s Wand Shoppe, Quidditch gear and butterbeer from Hogsmead village – that and more will be new at Universal Studios Orlando adventure park opening in the spring of 2010. The Florida theme park will present The Wizarding World of Harry Potter as part of it’s Island of Adventure property and visitors will be allowed to tour Hogwarts, have fun on different roller coaster rides and purchase Harry Potter themed items based on author JK Rowling’s imaginative tale.
The estimated cost? $265 million dollars. Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmead Village will be recreated for fans and there will three rides central to the park. One ride is still super secret – “a high-tech experience inside the castle called Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey that involves the likenesses of the heroes from the films.”
In between filming the final two installments of the Harry Potter movies, Tom Felton has peeked at the upcoming park. The Draco Malfoy actor told the NY Times how he felt about the future home of Hogwarts:
“We always say on set, ‘If this place was real, it would be absolutely fantastic,’ ” he said in a telephone interview. “To actually walk into this world and be able to touch it and taste it and smell it — well, it’s just going to be fantastic.”
Now fans worldwide will be able to interact with the beloved characters, long after the films have come and gone in theaters.
