The Fun Begins.

Hi,

.

Another fine day I have got myself into here.

Blue sky, hot sunshine and it is a Saturday….what more could a person ask!

.

I wonder how many of you are packing for an imminent holiday.

I wonder how many of you are heading out to Florida for some excellent wizardy-type fun.

.

Do you remember my previous post about the new idea of a Harry Potter World?

Well, the new Wizarding World Of Harry Potter section of the Universal Studio’s Islands Of Adventure theme park is now open for business.

This is the grand opening on June 18th 2010.

You can drink butterbeer…
… and buy a wand in Ollivander’s Wand Shop.

.

There is the 170 foot high Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade High Street to visit, as well as Zonko’s Joke Shop and and the Hog’s Head Tavern.

.

The full sized steam train used in the film is there to greet you, steaming impatiently on the platform and a Golden Snitch is yours for the sum of $14.95.

.

If you are feeling brave you can tackle the 68mph Dragon Challenge…

but be warned…this is mostly screaming…

.
.
but for the wore faint-hearted there is the gentler Flight Of The Hippogriff.

.

Inside Hogworts it sounds very exciting, with all of the expected bits from the films along with special effects, a Quidditch match, Dementors, giant spiders and even The Dark Lord.

.

Wow and Wow again, for those of you who like to toss your cookies!

For a virtual tour….

.

As for me….Hmmmmm….

.

Do have a magical weekend yourself,

J,x.

Of course Harry Potter is not the only person who can do magic
