The countdown to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter begins today as Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the Spring 2016 arrival of the West Coast’s most anticipated entertainment experience and the introduction of the land’s signature attraction, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey in hyper-realistic 3D-HD.

More than five years in the making, and inspired by J. K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters and the Warner Bros. films, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood will bring guests the same authenticity and storytelling found at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Japan and is expected to attract Harry Potter fans and visitors from all over the globe for decades to come.

Visitors will be swept into a fully immersive themed land that brings the Harry Potter fiction and films to life with impeccable detail and precision. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including Hogwarts castle which will serve as its iconic focal point.

Like its counterparts, Hogwarts castle will sit at the heart of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter where the land’s signature ride, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, will take guests on a journey into many memorable scenes alongside Harry, Ron and Hermione. Traveling by Floo powder, guests will soar high above Hogwarts, partake in a Quidditch match, narrowly escape a dragon attack and have a close encounter with the Whomping Willow.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is an achievement in pioneering theme park ride technology featuring a groundbreaking robotics ride system, fused with elaborate filmed action sequences and immersive visceral effects. Sporting Quidditch-inspired 3D goggles, guests will venture through journeys experienced by Harry and his friends, spiraling and pivoting 360-degrees along an elevated ride track on a whirlwind adventure of a lifetime.
