Ollivander’s Wand Shop At ‘Wizarding World Of Harry Potter’ Amusement Park

Of all the memorable moments in the Harry Potter film series, the first visit young Harry takes to Ollivander’s Wand Shop is truly magical: from the bell ringing as he enters the dimly lit store to the moment the wand ‘chooses’ Harry, the scene draws the viewer into his new wizarding world. That experience will be had first hand by visitors to the upcoming amusement park at Universal Studio in Orlando, Florida. The ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ will have a unique and interactive attraction with the wand shop as part of the theme park opening this spring.

When the guest enters the wand shop to speak with the wand keeper, he or she will be asked a series of questions to start the matching process.

“The questions that will be asked from the wand keeper to the wizard are very individual, very tailored to each person based on their birth date and other questions which will determine the kind of wood and kind of narrow down the choices of wands,” [VP of Creative Development, Thierry] Coup shared.

From there, the wand keeper will offer the guest a series of wand options until the right match is found. Like in the “Harry Potter” story, a series of “magical mishaps” will occur before the right wand is found.

What more could you want from your immersion in the world of Harry Potter? Butter beer of course! That will be available too at a Hogsmeade tavern. Check out the vid with Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton giving you their impression on the park.
