The highly anticipated new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood will open in April, it has been confirmed.
Details features of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter have been released intermittenly during the attraction’s five years construction, but its opening date had been kept under wraps.

A promotional campain has now kicked off in the run-up to its opening on 7th April 2016.

The new Hogwarts attraction in Los Angeles will include a “multidimensional thrill ride” called Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
Visitors will wear Quidditch-inspired 3D goggle as they spiral 360-degrees along an elevated track. The ride will feature “groundbreaking” robotics, with elaborated filmed action sequences, “immersive visceral effects” and a “3D-HD design”, Universal said.
The ride will be an updated version of that which opened at Universal’s Florida park in 2010.

Also within the attraction will be Universal Studios Hollywood’s first outdoor rollercoaster, Flight of the Hippogriff, which is promoted as family friendly.
