The Wizarding World of Harry Potter park has sent over a new picture of Ollivander's Wand Shop (which you can see in full rez here in our galleries, or by clicking the below picture):



Harry Potter Park

You can see a video about upcoming features here in our video galleries.

As mentioned in our previous post, visitors to Ollivander's will consult with a Wandkeeper to help choose their wand; the shop is and "intimate, single-windowed building, with the same signs, colors and othe rdetails read about in the books and seen in the films." Visitors will be surrounded by "thousands of multi-colored dusty wand boxes stacked on shelves from floor to ceiling."

Other revelations about the park include:

  • The presence of a Howler in the Owl Post shop window that will rant loudly as guests pass
  • The Monster Book of Monsters will snarl and growl in Dervish and Banges
  • The Hog's Head will be seen puffing his jowls at visitors who visit.

I am sorry, but in the video Gambon said that he wanted another wand, since he has had the same one for five years, not cool.

With all the details that are being taken into consideration it sounds like HP fans are in for a very satisfying and memorable experience. =)

I think that it’s great we’ll be able to hear a Howler ranting loudly inside the Owl Post and that the Hog’s Head will be puffing his jowls, but shouldn’t the Monster Book of Monsters be in a outpost of Flourish & Blott’s instead of Dervish & Banges (which sells magical equipment like Sneakascopes)?

I really don’t see why everybody gets so worked up about a ‘theme park’ that consists only of SHOPS; is merely meant to take your money. Have fun, guys.

Guess That Book

Malfoy certainly did talk about flying a lot. He complained loudly about first years never getting on the house Quidditch teams and told long, boastful stories that always seemed to end with him narrowly escaping Muggles in helicopters.
