Harry Potter Attraction Coming to Universal Studios

Start lining up now, Harry Potter fans.

Universal Studios is building a replica of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction that’s currently at their Orlando theme park.

The Wall Street Journal notes the deal isn’t official yet but a contract between Universal and Warner Bros. is being finalized.

The attraction is scheduled to open no earlier than 2015 and include Hogwarts Castle, roller coasters and multiple Harry Potter-themed restaurants.

For fans outside the country, the Harry Potter attraction could eventually expand to Japan, Singapore and Spain if the Los Angeles attraction is a success.
