article imageNew Harry Potter theme park may be coming to Southern California

Los Angeles - Possible plans have been announced to build a new Harry Potter theme park. Universal Studios Hollywood would be hosting the attraction
A similar theme park already exists at Universal Orlando in Florida. Universal is looking to expand on the franchise, since the theme park in Florida has been such a success with visitors. According to the Los Angeles Times, the theme park in Florida has been responsible for a 36% boost in attendance at Universal Orlando within the first three months of 2011.
Harry Potter-themed rides and replicas of popular Harry Potter locations would be part of the new attraction in Southern California.
Universal Studios Hollywood must somehow find a way to fit the theme park into its location due to the limited space. Organizers say that existing rides may need to be removed or retrofitted in order to make room for the new attraction.
The new theme park could be open as soon as 2015.
Reuters states that Harry Potter theme parks may also soon be built in Japan and Singapore.
