Potter's Wizarding World Receives A 'Thumbs Up' From Hermione!

By Meera Dolasia on May 24, 2010

While the world anxiously awaits the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park in Orlando, Florida, some of the lucky stars from the movie series, got a sneak preview last week. Their verdict? A resounding thumbs up!

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), was joined by Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Mathew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Oliver and James Phelps (George and Fred Weasley).

After posing for a picture outside Hoagsmede, the group made its way to the Three Broomsticks for a bite to eat and then to Hog's Head Pub for a taste of butterbeer. Then it was a visit to Zonko's joke shop and Honeydukes for some chocolate frogs. To equip themselves for the new year, the group strolled into Ollivander's, where Emma experienced a magical wand fitting.

Then it was time for the rides, which includes a family roller coaster called, 'Flight of the Hippograph' and a twin-speed roller coaster dubbed Dragon Challenge, after the Triwizard Tournament.

Also fun, was the Forbidden Journey, which takes visitors through Hogwarts and includes scenes and rooms from the entire series. While the group toured the Owl Post, there was no word whether they sent out any mail.

The 20-acre park, which is located inside Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure is scheduled to open on June 18th, but locals are hoping that they too will get a sneak preview before the rest of the world descends into Orlando!
