It’s Official: There Will Be a Harry Potter Theme Park

As first confirmed last month by Deadline Hollywood Daily’s Nikki Finke (who today offers a slew of first-look pictures) Warner Bros. and Universal Studios have announced are teaming up to create “The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter”, a theme park coming to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park in late 2009. The fully immersive, themed land will enable guests to visit some of the most iconic locations found in the books and the films including the village of Hogsmeade, the mysterious Forbidden Forest, and even Hogwarts castle itself. “The plans I’ve seen look incredibly exciting, and I don’t think fans of the books or films will be disappointed,” said J.K. Rowling.

The new park – or “environment”, as the release refers to it – will feature rides and interactive attractions, as well as experiential shops and restaurants that will enable guests to sample fare from the wizarding world’s best known establishments.
