Entertainment and interactive experiences are going to be a huge part of Diagon Alley when it opens later this summer. Universal Orlando has revealed the entertainment venues and interactive elements of Diagon Alley that guests will be able to experience once inside the walls of Diagon Alley.
Once inside Diagon Alley, if you take a left hand turn immediately, you will run into two entertainment shows, The Fountain of Fair Fortune” and “The Tale of the Three Brothers” (which was featured in the seventh film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1”). “The Tale of the Three Brothers” will feature puppets from Emmy-award-winning designer Michael Curry.
The second show will feature The Singing Sorceress: Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees. During this live show, guests will hear tunes performed such as “A Cauldron Full Of Hot, Strong Love,” “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart” and “You Charmed The Heart Right Out Of Me” – all titles created by J.K. Rowling.
Shows are not the only experience guests will have to ability to experience once inside Diagon Alley and London. Once guests step foot inside London, they will come face to face with the Knight Bus. The Knight Bus is home to two permanent residents, a shrunken head (pictured above) and the Knight Bus Conductor. The shrunken head will interact with guests before they embark on their journey into Diagon Alley.
And last but not least, before embarking on your journey into Diagon Alley, be sure to stop by the Gringotts Money Exchange. Here guests can exchange their Muggle currency for Wizarding Bank Notes, which you can use inside Diagon Alley to purchase goods.
There will also be a Ollivanders inside Diagon Alley where you can experience the wand choosing the wizard.
