Wizarding World of Harry Potter Concept Art Online

— Posted by Rodney

Universal Studios is hard at work to build their Wizarding World of Harry Potter as an immersive experience of all things Harry Potter.

Online today we get a look at some of the concept art and video workup of a flyby of the park with some inspirational clips from the film.

/Film has the breakdown of some of the attractions

* Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey: Located in Hogwarts Castle,this “thrilling new state-of-the-art attraction” uses “entirely new technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced.”

* Flight of the Hippogriff: A family coaster which will include interaction with Hagrid as you fly on a Hippogriff for training.

* Dragon Challenge: Formerly the Dueling Dragons coaster, rethemed to center on flying either a Hungarian Horntail or Chinese Fireball, featuring “many iconic elements from the Triwizard Tournament.”

Other attractions include Ollivander’s Shop, Owl Post, Dervish and Banges, Three Broomsticks, Honeydukes, Zonko’s and Filch Emporium.

I am such a geek. I can’t wait to go see this. I might even bring my kids.

    Color me disappointed. I’ve been a huuge Harry Potter fan for years… and was actually looking forward to this attraction… and I’ve already been on one of its roller coasters? “Rethemed” ~10 year old roller coaster = lame.

    I hope this is just the beginning of the attraction, because there’s so much they could have done and didn’t. I can’t see how they could have skipped making the flying car ride in the second book into some kind of coaster… that was an obvious one.
