Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: I hope they're gonna bring it to the UK too ... Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: what!!! Thats there final stop. uggg. they cnt come to florida??Avatar ImageeiVega says: I don't understand why it is the final stop! They hardly went anywhere! There are so many more big cities they haven't visited! Is it not making enough money for a bigger tour! I feel so cheated. :(Avatar Imageandy the house elf says: Is this really the FINAL tour stop, or the last North America stop? Other sites are reporting it as the last US stop so, for once, I hope Leaky is wrong. Can this be confirmed? I'll feel extremely cheated if it doesn't go ANYWHERE else in the world. Seems extremely unfair.Avatar Imagemargoooo says: It's the final planned tour stop in the US... not forever.Avatar ImageFresca says: This is really great news for Seattle Harry Potter fans! I am glad it has been confirmed for them.Avatar ImageScatach says: *gasp* I'm visiting my family in Seattle even if my parents don't go too just so I can see this!!Avatar Imagesyler123 says: I live in Kent, WA. just a little south of seattle. I already made plans to get my ticket next thursday (pay day). for oct. 23 (opening day) or the 30th week later.Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO! SUPER SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! My daughter just asked me if we're going to go. Honey, the question is not IF we're going to go. It's how many TIMES are we going to go? (Answer: as often as I can afford!!!)Avatar Imagebellatrix15101 says: I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am gonna get my tickets as soon as possible!!!!!!!! Avatar ImageOddRavenclaw222 says: Is it too much to ask that they go to Arizona or even Southern California?Avatar ImageAmberMV says: YESSSSSSSAvatar Imagehorsepatronus64 says: new york...? please...?Avatar ImageSindi says: Well the site says more dates to be added soon... so maybe this is the last stop for now... lets hope so... Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: Hopefully they do a round two eventually and hit up atl.Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: but it seems so epic i would hate to miss outAvatar ImageCamilleBSM says: Seriously? The last stop. SAD DAY!Avatar ImageCamilleBSM says: Seriously? The last stop. SAD DAY!Avatar ImageNoz says: Last stop of the US I hope. I'm tired of everything taking place there. There are plenty of places who could welcome the exhibition in Europe (or Asia), with certainly a lot of people who'd like to visit it there. I hope the "last stop" thing will be updated and refined in the next few days. Avatar ImageRosie016 says: Wow I am glad I went when it was in Chicago! Good news for those close to Seattle. I am sure this can't be the last US stop, maybe they will add to the exhibit for the next round!Avatar ImageMeggie the Goose says: YEEES! I live in Victoria just across the water from Seattle, I'm gonna be there next week but maybe I can convince my parents to go again before the exhibit leaves.Avatar ImageXyra44 says: Okay, so for right now this Potter fan feels rather betrayed and sulky. Had they told us in the beginning that there were only going to be 3 or 4 stops in the US I'd have made a better attempt to get to Chicago (or Boston), but no they list one location at a time. Perhaps the exhibit creators don't think a traveling show is needed now that the Wizarding World is open in Florida. Stinks just the same - it should have hit at least the lower 48 states. I do hope this is the final in round one and that it will return again after hitting spots around the globe. Still for now call me moaning myrtle jr.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Its awesome you MUST see it!Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: I'm so happy for you, Seattle-area fans! DO NOT MISS THIS! It is awesome.Avatar Imagehewy says: Last stop? That just sucks. Do they think there are no Potter fans south of the Mason Dixon line???? What are we non-entities? Avatar Imagepotterfan4lyfe says: Ughh why can't they come to Southern California?!?!?! It's just a little south from Washington!!! PLEASE COME TO CALIFORNIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Gee whiz Headmistress, nice to see ya!!!Avatar Imagesakuranbo07 says: I hope they visit other countries.
