There's No Business Like Snow Business for Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida
April 06, 2009, 12:49 PM
In perhaps a fun bit of Magic, or Muggle might at work, early concept art for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park is proving to become reality. The Orlando Sentinel reports today that just as we saw in this artwork for the Hogsmeade village portion of the theme park currently under construction in sunny Florida, a company has been hired to make the village a snow covered site. The paper states that:
Universal has signed a special-effects contract with SnowMasters
Evaporative Snow Systems Inc. The Anderson, Ala.-based company builds
fake snow-making machines and offers everything from blowing snow to
ground blankets to faux icicles.
No word if Snowball fights will be available ;) Construction on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction at Universal Orlando continues, with the park set to open sometime in 2010.
not bothered about snow.
That looks so cool – can’t wait!
SNOW!!?!! Please! I live in Maine and I’ve seen enough snow to last a lifetime.
;) weelll, since i live in canada i have seen my share of snow so….but yeah, sounds magical ;)
I Cant Wait!! If only i had someone to go with my friends arent really as into harry potter as i am.
I remember being in Disney and the fake snow on Main Street. Then later when we were in the Animal Kingdom, it started to rain and I had to ask myself if it was real rain or Disney rain. : )
I can’t wait for this park to open! Should be big fun!
