    Smile Predict when the WW of HP will Open at U. Hollywood!

    Will the inspired construction at Universal Orlando cross the country to
    Universal Hollywood's Wizarding World of Harry Potter?

    Sharing insider information is encouraged!

    When do you think our Los Angeles County Hogwarts will open?

    I went with summer of 2016. I feel that is realistic for what they want to do probably.

    This project has me a bit upset. They announced it in December of 2011, but won't break ground until this month? I feel like they needed to make the announcement to stay relevant.

    Anyhow, I feel like they need to time their projects with the releases of the movies.

    I currently work at Universal, and I can't wait to submit my interdepartmental transfer once they open up Wizarding World. I'm guessing it'll be a long time from now, though.

    they only announced it because it got leaked.

    I did too. If it were Universal Orlando, and they had already built a Harry Potter land, I might vote for the summer of 2015. Unfortunately, a 2017 opening for Hollywood wouldn't surprise me either.

    i went to Gibson amphitheater last week for Teen Choice Awards. it looks a lot smaller in person than on tv. any seat is a good seat. I prefer Gibson than Nokia in downtown LA.

    It looks like they aren't doing anything to the Shrek/Curious George area for HHN - at the very least there's no maze over there, any activity would likely be either a Chucky show (I'm hoping the Chucky scare zone ends up in that area rather than wrapped around the El Cucuy maze) or some other easily set up show. Add to that the Gibson currently not having any shows scheduled past 9/6 - two weeks from now.

    I'm hoping basic demo may be started in that area very soon. If that's the case, I'm putting my marker on opening for Summer 2015.

    Next year's Despicable Me. They've already got something - a nice, solid (though 3D movie) attraction to fill time between the Uni equivalent of E-tickets.

    Late 2015 or early 2016 is my guess for Wizarding World.


    2015 should also see an addition to the Studio Tour (rumored to be a 360 3D Fast and the Furious attraction ) and Springfield.

    The WWoHP officially opened at Universal Orlando on June 18, 2010. Do any of you Micechatters know when the Hogwarts there was "topped out"? I think it'd be interesting to know how much time passed after Hogwarts' highest parts were added till the WWoHP opened.

    I haven't been following this in Japan, but the number of months there might also give some indication to the real point of this post, about how much time might there be after the topping out till we can drink butterbeer at U Hollywood?

    If Hollywood's Hogwarts is as tall at Orlando's, it will be visible from outside of the park and once it is topped, it might become

    California's
    most anticipated theme park addition
    since Disneyland's Haunted Mansion in the 1960s!


    (There will be even more excitement if it is not a clone of part of Orlando's WWoHP.)

    Also, I've read that construction in Orlando for the whole WWoHP took two and a half years. This might mean a Christmas 2015 U Hollywood WWoHP opening--or maybe even a summer of 2015 opening since building Hollowood's Transformers first may have helped the then experienced Universal build the Orlando version in just about one year.

    To quote Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka, "the suspense is killing me!"

    Me again.

    If the WWoHP opened a full year earlier,
    wouldn't the
    (potential) extra $100+ million they'd earn from that extra year
    more than pay for an extra 8-hour shift for a construction crew?
    I have no idea how much additional money it'd generate,
    but I'm guessing it would be "gobs." (
    What's a "gob"? Sounds nasty.)

    Why not build Hollywood's WWoHP with three 8-hour shifts working round the clock?
    Wouldn't that be an exciting PR move?
    This is embarrassing, but pleeeaaaaase!

    I wish Universal and not Disney had bought Star Wars. I believe that with the current management of each company Universal would build new Stars Wars lands and attractions bigger, better and much, much more quickly. But I'm just stalling the fans, Universal. Hurry up with Hollywood's Hogwarts, please!
