Harry Potter: Dark Arts projection show REVEALED

Yes, Universal Orlando Resort may be getting Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, the highly-themed roller coaster, this year, but Universal isn’t letting the East Coast keep the wizarding spotlight all to itself. 2019 will also see the debut of another brand-new Harry Potter experience, this time at Universal Studios Hollywood: the Dark Arts at Hogwarts […]

Hollywood’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter has new (and the best!) spells

Despite being largely consistent with one another, the three Wizarding Worlds of Harry Potter located across the globe do feature a few exclusive experiences, such as Universal Orlando Resort’s extra roller coaster or Universal Studios Japan’s bevy of events and shows. Universal Studios Hollywood, for its part, brandishes the still-new Hogsmeade Station store and a […]

Jurassic World is arriving at Universal Studios Hollywood

When it came time to develop a theme-park counterpart to Universal Pictures’s yet-to-be-released-but-already-clearly-successful Jurassic Park, designer Gary Goddard – who had played a role in many a major Universal attraction – decided to eschew the obvious path and brave the road less travelled: rather than doing a recreation of the movie’s famed car tour through […]
