Happy Wednesday, Muggles!
Last week, we brought you our update on the Gringott’s Bank roller coaster – as much as we could share with you, anyway.
In case you missed it – the Gringott’s show building is moving along at a feverish pace:
King’s Cross has gone vertical, and we’ll soon be able to get a better idea of its layout and work progresses. Work is also progressing on Hogsmead Station at Islands of Adventure.
This week, our trusted Owl will tease us with another expansion update. We’ve all heard the rumors of what stores and shops we should expect on Diagon Alley – our Owl elaborates on one of our favorites:
“It would have been impossible to undertake Diagon Alley and not include a store run by two of the franchises most beloved characters. Fred and George embodied the child-like spirit that we all feel working on this project. What better to include than Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes? We debated from the start what to make of WWW – a walk-through? A store? Both? Guest will be treated to a number of unique products at WWW. Of course, it will offer someunique merchandise. From trick wands, to the extendable ear, love potions, and Pygmy Puffs. These are a few in a myriad collection of merchandise that will be wonderful for collectors. Expect to see Fred and George make an appearance in the store – much the same that Ron, Harry, and Hermione do in Hogwarts Castle. And likely the most exciting of all, and easily the benchmark of the experience will be the indoor display of the twins famous Weasley’s Wildfire Whiz-Bangs….”
We’ve left out our technical discussion of how the fireworks display will work – and likely will save it for after the attraction has opened to not spoil anything for you!
Until next week…. make your own magic, friends.
