New Harry Potter Theme Park - Potterheads, Rejoice!
A new magical Harry Potter Theme Park will be here to whisk you off to your wildest Hogwarts dreams in 2023! In a report by Kyodo News, a 94-year-old amusement park in Tokyo, Japan will be closing down by end August, and part of the site will be used to construct a brand new theme park based on the Harry Potter films. The new theme park is scheduled to open its doors in the first half of 2023!
The plot of land where the new theme park will be built will be leased to Itochu Corp. and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. - people who will make the magic happen.
The Second Of Such Facility In The World
This theme park will be the second of such facility in the world, and seems like it'll resemble the amazing Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London. Should that be true, the theme park will not have attractions and rides like at The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Japan, but will be a space where visitors can marvel at breathtaking production sets, actual film props and costumes, and more.
The Warners Bros Studio in London allows visitors to go on a unique behind-the-scenes tour where you can explore iconic locations from Harry Potter films such as Diagon Alley, Gringotts Wizarding Bank, Dumbledore's Office, and the Hogwarts' Great Hall. You can also enjoy a free glass of Butterbeer when you book your tickets on Klook.
Though not a lot of details have been released about the new theme park thus far, we're definitely looking forward to exploring a new magical world once the pandemic is over!
