Great news for American Harry Potter Fans. Universal Studios has announced that as part of their $1.6 Billion expansion of Universal Studios Hollywood in California, they plan to open a second Wizarding World of Harry Potter on the West Coast of the USA.
Folks west of the Mississippi won’t have to find their way to Florida to experience the Harry Potter theme park.
On top of this, they’ve also announced that the existing park in Florida will be expanding to include a replica of Diagon Alley. They’ll be building all new rides and creating an all new experience.
It’s actually expanding into another park, so visitors will be able to ride the Hogwart’s Express from the existing attraction to the new one. How cool is that? The new park is currently under construction and will open in 2014.
Here’s a video about the new park:
