Wizarding World Theme Park Announcement Due Today; Video Overview of ParkFans
Today is the day when Universal Orlando is set to unveil new details about the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction. TLC's own Melissa Anelli is down in Florida today for a special webcast and other announcements that are taking place this morning, and will bring us a very detailed report in the next few hours, stay tuned! Early reports from her say the stage is decorated like the Gryffindor Common Room, very beautiful. As the media interest in the theme park is now quite high, one of the local TV stations has a video preview online, including overhead footage of the park under construction in Orlando Florida which you can watch at this link.
Again, while we expect formal announcements and more in just over a half-hour, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is due to open in early 2010, and will include at least three rides, one which will be housed in the giant Hogwarts Castle. Be sure to check out our extensive collection of concept art, construction photos, and more here in our galleries.
