  1. Below is a photo of Universal Studios Hollywood. In the photo you can see some of the lunar new year decorations up in the center plaza along with the completed Universal Studios Animation Store which will be opening, with its hello kitty theme, on March 1st. You can also see that the Shrek 3D building (soon to become the Dreamworks Theater) still houses projectors on its roof, pointing at the Hogwarts Castle, suggesting that Universal might have some more projection shows to debut in the coming future.

    Timed ticket kiosks are in use now to ensure Hogsmede doesn't get too crowded during official opening.

    In preparation of Hogsmeade Opening, Universal Studios are trialing variable pricing so you pay a lower price when booking for quieter days.

    Some different angles on Hogsmeade from TheRedsteeltv. It's the first time I have seen steam coming out of the Hogwarts Express in Hollywood.

    So what will be expected when the Wizarding World of Harry Potter officially opens on April?

    The new themed land will include the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey motion-based simulator ride inside a replica of the Hogwarts castle. Forbidden Journey is generally considered to be one of the best rides in the amusement industry.

    The family-friendly Flight of the Hippogriff by German-based Mack Rides will be slightly taller (50 feet), longer (1.300 feet) and faster (40 mph) than the Florida version of the roller coaster.

    The Potter land in Florida featured the re-themed Dragon Challenge dueling twin-track roller coaster which won’t be replicated in California.
