The highly anticipated Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to open tomorrow, June 18, 2010. Universal Orlando Resort is expecting an extremely large crowd for the opening day as many fans are eager to taste Butterbeer, ride the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and walk the streets of Hogsmeade Village.
The public grand opening festivities at the Orlando theme park are scheduled to begin at 9am and will last around 30 minutes. To prepare for the much-publicized grand opening Universal Orlando is opening its parking garage at 5:30am with the Islands of Adventure theme park, the location of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, opening promptly at 9am.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will feature Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, a ride combining 360-degree filming techniques and sophisticated robotics to create the illusion of a magic adventure in flight with Harry Potter and his pals, plus there will be two outdoor roller coasters on the 20-acre Harry Potter attraction.
Universal Orlando tickets are on sale now.
