New Poll, New Concept Art of Dervish and Banges at Wizarding World of Harry Potter


Feb 25, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

The great news keeps on coming as Universal Orlando has now released new concept art for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction: this of Dervish and Banges. Due to be located in the Hogsmeade village portion of the park, Universal says that the store “supplys the Wizarding community with school supplies, Quidditch gear and magical, wizarding equipment.” At this store, park visitors will be able to purchase “authentic and unique items from the World of Harry Potter.” Also new is a poll regarding which dragon you might like to ride (Chinese Fireball, or Hungarian Horntail).

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park is currently under construction in Orlando, Florida and is due to open sometime next year.

Thanks Joel and Elizabeth!

It would be soooo much fun!!!! But the Chinese Firebolt would be pretty sweet as well. Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: It looks so good! I voted Horntail.Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: Well, Dervish and Banges don't sell wands, but they do sell just about every other magical insturment you might want. I want a Sneakoscope! I like the fact that they have Hermione's Yule Ball dress there- maybe you can buy one?! But I wish it was in periwnkle blue like it was in the books. The concept art looks great though, I am so excited!Avatar Imagecowashee says: why not Weasley's Wizard Weezy's?? They're way better.Avatar Imagecowashee says: oh, and i'll be *hopefully* going there on my honeymoon!!! though June in Florida might roast me alive.Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I may have to take out a second mortgage to buy all these items. Avatar ImageChrissyPuff says: Awesome Idea for the store... I see they have a picture of Hermione's dress from the Yule Ball. I would love to wear that!

My family has been putting off their trip to see the Mouse until we know for sure when this attraction will be open! Harry first, Mouse definitely second!!Avatar ImageAttolia says: I think this theme park is going to be so awesome! I hope I'll be able to visit it sometime!Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: <--- excited beyond measure!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Where is the Common Welsh Green? We could share a pint after the ride.Avatar ImageMoody One says: I can't wait!! Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: A group of us are planning on attending the theme park but like the movies, it seems to be changing it's opening date. Makes it a little hard to plan in advance.Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: That is going to be so awesome!Avatar ImageMaja_Leonora says: I've got to say, I wish Dervish and Banges would be brighter. Imagine that bluish/gray ceiling in some orangy/read colour in stead...! The colours in this art work seem gloomy... It might be alright when it's bright new, but after a couple of years, when you add some dust and general wear and tear - how is it going to look then?Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: It won't let me vote but I could look at previous poll results. I think the place looks awesome though!Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: want that dragon!Avatar Imagelawahine says: Makes me excited!Avatar Imagescarymissmary28 says: that's awesome,I can't wait to go!!Avatar ImageShadowed_dreamer89 says: Hey that's Me!!!

Probably won't want to leave!Avatar ImageVioletPhoenix says: I hope I can go there some day, it would to too freakin COOL!Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Another vote for the Horn Tail! That would be great. I dunno - the concept drawing looked a little "tourist trap" to me - hope they take care not to load it up with cheap stupid looking skulls and stuff - they should stick to the story and not try to use the store as a place to unload their junk!~Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: I think they should have made the choice between Hungarian Horntail or Norwegian Ridgeback.Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Dervish & Banges looks good. Wonder if we're going to have a dragon coaster!Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: My money's on the Horntail! :)Avatar ImageHopelaa93 says: I can't wait for the opening, I will have to go, I don't care about the travel costs. Hungarian Horntail for sure!!!!!Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: I want to go to the theme park some time.Avatar Imagesophie619 says: im SO picking the chinese fireball! they are awesome :)Avatar Imagegrednforge7 says: I love concept art!!!!!!

Oops :/ I meant Chinese [i]Fireball[/i]Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: Awesome! Though everything will be super expensive: theme park style...Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: I just got my plans pushed back, so it will probably be 5years before I get to go instead of twoAvatar ImageBradyboy says: Hungarian Horntail. I don't know why that is even up for a question lol. Avatar ImageDaughterOfAvalon says: I am so glad that they are actually polling fans to see what we want in the park. I really hope we see all the things that we voted on!Avatar ImageLunaGinervaBlack says: yayyyAvatar ImageFlourishandBlotts says: This theme park is incredible. I've been waiting for something like this to come out for years. When it opens, I will so be there! : D Squeeeeee!Avatar ImageEmily Erland says: I second Dawlish & the Archies comment - I think this totally means the DD ride will be incorporated into the HP world... which is awesome, because DD is one of my favorite roller coaster rides!Avatar Imagemargareth_6teengal says: are we seeing norbert too?Avatar ImageZoeyLuna says: I just drove by the back of Universal Orlando, and I saw a HUGE rollercoaster under construction that none of us in the car recognized. It's red with yellow "accents" and there is this even bigger yellow structure next to it that kind of reminds me of a Quidditch observation stand from the movies. There was a big crane over the large yellow structure too. I didn't get a picture yet (because we were all too busy going "what IS that???") but I will take one soon and upload it to my profile! :)Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: Oh my GOODNESS. I wasn't that excited for this when it was first announced, but now I cannot WAIT to go! That concept art looks amaaaazing!
