Yes, there is a Harry Potter theme-park. Though it may come as a surprise to the non-Harry Potter fan, the million dollar themed park opened its doors earlier this year at Universal Studios in Orlando. Many have esteemed the rides at the park, and the theme park has been hailed for its recreation of the fictional world of Harry Potter. Whether it is the cobbled narrow streets of Hogsmeade, the corridors of Hogsworth or the pumpkin juice available at the Three Broomstick, fans seem ecstatic to be able to re-live some of their favourite moments in the world of Harry Potter.
