Wizarding World of Harry Potter Detail #764

Part of what makes the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure so amazing is how they bring all the details from the books and movies to life. Here's the first photo in a series of images that will chronicle many of these magical minutia. Guests strolling through Hogwarts castle will encounter the house points hourglasses. Featured in the Harry Potter films, the hourglasses record the points earned or lost by members of the four Hogwarts houses throughout the school year – scarlet represents Gryffindor, blue represents Ravenclaw, green represents Slytherin and yellow represents Hufflepuff. Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the most spectacularly-themed entertainment experience ever created.
