Wizarding World of Harry Potter stupefies

Post by Helen8 » Sat Jun 26, 2010 12:13 am

Great (and long) article in the LA Times describing the park and the rides. Sounds like a 5 Nimbus 2000 rating! I can't wait. Fall can't get here soon enough.

Universal Orlando Resort's re-creation of J.K. Rowling's magical wonderland is a feat of imagination that sets new standards for theme park attractions.

If God is in the details, then Wizarding World is the holiest place on Earth.

How many calories in butterbeer, available in frozen and non, is one detail ominously absent. Depending on whom you ask, the base could be cream soda or white birch beer with a dash of butterscotch syrup, but the topping bears a disturbing resemblance to melted and very buttery vanilla ice cream, so it's probably better not to think about it.

Good thing to wait until fall. It's been disgustingly hot and humid out.
The article was really nice. Thanks Helen. It's nice to hear what other parts of the country think.

The Washington Post had a page-long story about it too on Sunday:
