Universal Could Be Expanding The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Good news, Muggles! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter could be expanding in the next two to three years. (More places to drink butterbeer? We're in.) Although Universal Orlando hasn't made an official announcement just yet, we're still hoping for the best.
According to Mugglenet, a Universal tour guide said that the HP attraction would be taking over the Lost Continent, an area of Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure. The park is adjacent to the 'Wizarding World' and would be prime real estate for an expansion.
Going by this time frame, the park addition could open as early as Summer 2012, but that's if construction starts ASAP. As we previously reported, swarms of people have flocked to Universal Orlando to visit the Harry Potter attraction, causing overcrowding and long waits. In fact, some families have come to the park and haven't been able to get in at all.
If the expansion does move forward, it could provide more space for visitors to dwell, or it could create an even bigger human traffic jam once the extended area opens. What would you like to see in the new section of the park, if Universal decides to build it out?
