Islands of Adventure Original Artwork tribute
As Islands of Adventure builds the highly anticipated Harry Potter land, I thought it would be fun to look back at the original concept art for the park, including some areas that are soon to disappear as the Wizarding World is constructed.
When Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park opened, everybody was stunned: would Universal finally be able to build a theme park with a Disney quality details and construction?
There were good reasons for Islands of Adventure's Disney look - as many of the park's creators were former Disney Imagineers and they did a really good job on IOA.
The park is indeed beautiful, and here is a "portfolio" of some of the artwork done for each of the park's lands.
These two first renderings show an overview of the park and the entrance.
