    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.

    We are exactly 3 months and 2 days until Universal Studios Hollywood officially opens The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! This post won't entirely pertain to Potter, but there are other park developments currently to accommodate more crowds soon. Here's a few photos from ParkJourney.com



    In the photo above, a sign was put up about work in progress, plays nice with the theme of Harry Potter.



    Like in my previous post, the construction walls were pushed back inside of the arch.



    What you are looking here is the new refreshed front entrance, and this building will be home to a huge expansion of the existing Universal Studios Store, with a dedicated Potter section in the middle of it.



    They have made their entry plaza a lot more open, as they anticipate large crowds coming in the next couple of months. And they have installed extra security measures like at the Disneyland Resort.
