Hogsmeade - Islands of Adventure


Welcome to Hogsmeade

This is one of the few remaining completely wizarding communities in England

Shall we take a look around?

It is serviced with non-stop train transportation to London

Some of the many stores in Hogsmeade include Zonko's on the left and Honeydukes on the right

Butterbeer is a must when visiting

Three Broomsticks is the main restaurant in town

Additional stores are down that way, including Ollivander's Wands and a School Uniform shop

Here is Hagrid's hut on the edge of Dark Forrest

It is not too far from Hogwarts which you can see in the distance

We are meeting Hagrid in these ruins for today's Magical Creatures Lesson

The fountain features a mermaid

Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motor Bile Adventure is probably one of the best story-telling coasters out there.

The ride balances thrills and immersion like no other ride out there

Time to head to Hogwarts Castle

The castle looms over the area

It is really high up on that hill

Heading inside for the Forbidden Journey ride
