Harry Potter Theme Park - Flight of the Hippogriff

When the Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince DVD hits shelves next month, fans will get a sneak peek at the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park. A few months ago, we told you about the basic concept of the park and the movie features that would pop up in the overall design.

On The Half Blood Prince DVD, there’s a segment available in the Special Features that highlights the construction of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. On one of the major fansites The Leaky Cauldron, they’ve posted several screencaps from the video that includes plenty of props and building outlines for you to drool over. Harry Potter fanatics will have to wait until December 8th to see the footage for themselves when the movie is released here in the states.

This is a joint venture with Universal Theme Parks which will feature three major rides inspired by the franchise. The largest out of the bunch is a castle called Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, that features the likeness of Potter and his friends. Another major ride is Flight of the Hippogriff, which is described as a family coaster that simulates the half-horse, half-eagle beast from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Then you have Dragon Challenge, which is a twin high-speed coaster that will feature elements from the Triwizard Tournament.
