The Wizarding World of Harry Potter park has sent over a new picture of Ollivander's Wand Shop (which you can see in full rez here in our galleries, or by clicking the below picture):

Harry Potter Park

You can see a video about upcoming features here in our video galleries.

As mentioned in our previous post, visitors to Ollivander's will consult with a Wandkeeper to help choose their wand; the shop is and "intimate, single-windowed building, with the same signs, colors and othe rdetails read about in the books and seen in the films." Visitors will be surrounded by "thousands of multi-colored dusty wand boxes stacked on shelves from floor to ceiling."

Other revelations about the park include:

  • The presence of a Howler in the Owl Post shop window that will rant loudly as guests pass
  • The Monster Book of Monsters will snarl and growl in Dervish and Banges
  • The Hog's Head will be seen puffing his jowls at visitors who visit.

It sounds incredible, but I’m beginning to wonder how much it will cost.

Does anyone else absolutely love Gambon’s comments in these promotional videos? He wants to head to Ollivander’s because he’s sick of the wand that he’s had on set for five years, and he wants to buy pints of Butterbeer when the restaurants open.

Hmmm, it sounds SO exciting, but I hope they actually pull it off well. I mean, how are they seriously going to create a “individualistic” experience for the thousands of visitors each day?
