This place is a must for Potter fans! Never ever have I been in such a more magical place! Drank Butterbeer, bought a wand in Ollivanders, went to Honeydukes and eat a cauldron cake! Went to Dervish and Bangs and seen some cool stuff and then obvisiously went on the amazing tour of Hogwarts and the Forbidden Jouurney! Amazing interactive... More

Unbelievable. Better yet as Vizzini, from the movie Princess Bride would say, "INCONCEIVABLE!" LOL!! I cannot describe the feeling when we boarded the train from Hogsmeade to go to Diagonal Alley. Overwhelmingly beautiful! Universal got this one right they made it twenty times bigger than Hogsmeade and added tons of eye candy. Interactive wands are a must if you are... More

This is amazing. Evening you are not a Harry potter fan the atmosphere is amazing. The ability to make you feel like you are transported into another world is truely amazing. If you want the absolute complete experience you will have to have a park to park ticket. Remember to ride the hogwarts express both ways it is different both... More

Whether you are a Harry Potter fan or not, (We aren't particularly) these worlds will blow you away. The detail is UNBELIEVABLE, we in the U.K. haven't a clue about theme parks in comparison. If you are a HP fan and thinking of going, beg steal or borrow or put your granny in care and sell her house, you wont... More

I had been excited about visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter ever since I knew it existed! For starters, it was far better than I imagined it would be. Just the view of the castle from a distance got my heart racing and once I entered Hogsmeade, it felt like being right on the movie set. Every minute detail,... More

I visited as a sceptic, sure the Harry Potter experience could not possibly live up to expectation after reading the books and watching the movies. I was amazed and delighted at the accuracy and detail from the stations, the Knight bus, the train, the shops, the Three Broomsticks Pub, the Butter Beer, the memorabilia, the interactive wands - I could...

Speechless. That's what you become when you enter the Wizarding World. Diagon Alley is full of magic and wonder from the moment you step in. Our breakfast at the Leaky Cauldron was tasty and the Butter Beer was a delicious start. Walking through the streets and visiting all the quaint shops did remind you of a simpler time, a Wizards...
