At Universal's Harry Potter exhibit, a magical journey awaits

Harry Potter Theme Park FloridaThe Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the newest attraction at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure theme park. Harry Potter fans can immerse themselves in the young wizard's world, which features attractions familiar to fans of the Harry Potter books. Among them are Honeydukes sweets shop, Zonko's joke shop and the Three Broomsticks pub.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has three rides: Tucked inside the grand castle of Hogwarts is the dazzling Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, in which new technology brings the characters to life. Dragon Challenge is a twin high-speed roller coaster with elements of a Triwizard Tournament. A more family-friendly ride, Flight of the Hippogriff, promises to keep fans on the edge of their seats.

At Dervish and Banges magic shop, Harry Potter fans can find quidditch equipment, Hogwarts uniforms and more. Need a new wand? Check Ollivanders. Fans won't want to miss Filch's Emporium or the Owl Post, either.
