As the grand opening draws near for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the new theme park area at Universal Studios Orlando, another new image from the park has been released today.
The new image — see it here at right — is of Hagrid’s Hut. In the Harry Potter universe, Hagrid is the half-giant groundskeeper at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and is a close confidant to boy wizard Harry Potter. Guests at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will pass by Hagrid’s Hut, which is a replica of Hagrid’s home from the films, on their way to the Flight of the Hippogriff coaster.
You can see more of Hagrid’s Hut in a feature on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter during this Sunday’s episode of NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice on NBC.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is part of Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, will have its grand opening on June 18, 2010.
An authentic replica from the Harry Potter films, guests will pass by Hagrid’s hut on their way to the Flight of the Hippogriff family-friendly roller coaster. Just before they board, Hagrid instructs guests on how to properly approach and fly on a Hippogriff. Hagridâ€™s hut will be seen as part of a feature about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice this Sunday, April 4.
