    Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure parks are a "do not miss" area of Central Florida. A great place for young and older family members. Your teenagers will have a great time also. This Theme Park is in two parks so plan a day for each part. the Wizarding World of Harry Potter park is located inside the Islands of Adventure area. Get to it early as it usually crowds up. If you loved the Harry books and movies you must see this park. It is everything you imagined and more.

    This is a must see for the Orlando area. If you only spend a day at Islands of Adventure, this is a must stop.

    Absolutely incredible in their execution.

    Everything made with perfection, the castle, the houses, the scenarium, amazing. When you enter here, you really want to buy all the Harry Potter stuff (and I'm definitely not a big fan)

    BEST! If you're a Harry Potter nerd like I am, you will love this place. It's the closest you're going to get to Hogwarts on this side of the world. They did an excellent job in capturing the feel of the movies and books. The souvenirs are great, too!

    Heard so much, anticipated so much, expected so much. After all that, when I set foot on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it still exceeded my wildest imaginations. The recreation of the Harry Potter World - Hogsmeade and Hogwarts castle was uncanny and surreal. Everything was meticulously done to perfection, I'm reluctant to report my findings because it'll spoil the fun of discovering each and every familiar detail from the Harry Potter books. Remember the fighting chess pieces? How about the Extendable ears? The Chocolate Frogs?

    Oh Butterbeer, how do I love thee? A pleasure which can't be passed (it's really non-alcoholic and kid-friendly) and can be enjoyed at one of the butterbeer carts or inside the Three Broomsticks.

    There are 3 rides, the Forbidden Journey which doubles as a wondrous walking tour through the Hogswarth castle (also done exquisitely to the every last detail) and an indoor ride with animatics seamlessly combined with physical props. GREAT. The Dragon challenge - twin rollercoasters that soars up in the sky, one of the best thrill rides in the park. And the Flight of the Hippogriff is a more family friendly rollercoaster.

    Before you leave, don't forget to send yourself or loved ones something from the Owl Post with the official stamp of the Wizarding World.

    Wonderful re-creation of Hogsmead and Hogwarts. The butterbeer and all flavor beans are a must try for anyone.

    HARRY POTTER. *wipes away drool* Fans of the Boy Who Lived, unite. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is fantastic. It will whisk you away to Harry's world, a place where Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and more importantly, butterbeer, rule. I literally sat at the Three Broomsticks and just geeked out, looking around me and imagining I was in Hogsmeade for real.

    Get inside Hogwart´s Castle for a great thrill ride on Harry Potter and the Forbbiden Journey, turn upside down on Dragon Challenge, and ride the new Hogwart´s Express.

Description

Located at Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must-see attraction for any serious fan of the enormously popular Harry Potter series, but also fun for even a casual admirer. After years of books, movies and tons of collectors' paraphernalia, the series has gotten even more accessible in this intricately-designed amusement park that re-creates the wizarding world. Fans will love visiting Hogwarts, exploring the Hogwarts Express and strolling through Hogsmeade. Many of the shops and locations mentioned in the books are available for visitors to explore and purchase goods. Fan favorites are real Butterbeer, Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, wands from Ollivander's and even life-sized brooms.
