Universal Orlando Joins Forces With USA Today For A Sneak Peek At WWoHP

On January 28, Universal Orlando Resort and USA TODAY, the nation’s top-selling print newspaper, will partner to provide the first-ever augmented reality map of the world’s most highly anticipated theme park experience – The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. With just a computer, webcam and the newspaper, you can make this one-of-a-kind theme park experience appear before your eyes.

Augmented Reality blends real-life environments with computer animation allowing you to explore things in a completely new way. For the first time, guests can explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a unique way – before experiencing it first hand.

By rotating the map, you can take a closer look at this 20-acre magnificently themed environment from all sides and angles. Hogwarts castle will appear before your eyes. Hold the map closer to your webcam and explore Hogsmeade and see the Hogwarts Express. Blow on your computer’s microphone and the banners on the map will wave.

As we have previously reported, Tom Felton has made multiple visits to Universal Orlando to see the progress of the park and will be attending the opening of the WWoHP later this spring.

Be sure to visit universalorlando.com on Thursday, January 28, for full instructions on how to enjoy the Augmented Reality experience – and stay up to date on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter by visiting www.universalorlando.com/harrypotter!

  1. That building supposedly should be able to be use for all things educatively not for supporting wizarding world.

    Wizarding world is from the dark side.

    • Mrs Turaz, as far as I can remember, Middle-East culture is also rich in wizarding fairy-tales. Therefore, I don’t see how you can relate the wizarding world to the Dark Side.

      The Dark Side, from my own experience, is a narrow-minded approach of things different from one’s vision of how things should be, and denying them all at the same time.

      With Love,

      Sam.
