Post Wizarding World of Harry Potter at USH construction update, opening date rumours

The most recent construction photos of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, taken this week, show that all scaffolding has been removed from all the shops and areas of Hogsmeade village.

The stores, including The Three Broomstick, Zonko's, Honeydukes and more, might already be completed - at least their exteriors - as of now. Hogwarts castle, as shown by the images MiceChat released, is still under very heavy construction around the upper towers and turrets.

MiceChat noted a few rumours regarding the third Wizarding World of Harry Potter, set to open in Los Angeles this coming spring:

-- Since USH shortened their annual passes for the parks up to March 18, 2016, the theory is that this was done so because the Wizarding World of Harry Potter would open sometime right after. This would tie in to around when spring break will take place next year, in the last couple of weeks of March.

So, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter might have its grand opening as early as late March, if not sometime in April. Executives at Universal Studios Hollywood already confirmed that the attraction would open a year before June 2, 2016, so March - April would fit there perfectly.

-- Apparently the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride is already testing its ride vehicles, allowing them to cycle through the four-minute ride. This usually took place a few months before the actual attraction opened.
