    Following the unprecedented success of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure theme park, more Potter attractions appear to be on the way, though no details are available yet.

    In an interview with Universal Studios President and COO Ron Meyer, in which the studio chief blasts several of Universal’s recent box office failures, Movieline.com reports that more attractions based on the hugely popular Harry Potter film franchise are in development. The movie web site posed the question to Meyer directly, asking “if there were plans to build additional Harry Potter amusement parks built outside of Orlando.” His response was rather straightforward: “Yes.” He wouldn’t elaborate.

    Since the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in June 2010, the Islands of Adventure theme park turned around from a park that was dramatically dropping in attendance to drawing thousands upon thousands of excited tourists and fans to walk through Hogsmeade Village, ride through a Forbidden Journey, and walk away with plenty of Muggle merchandise. Rumors continue to circulate that Universal Orlando plans to expand the relatively small Wizarding World into a much larger Potter-themed area, but no announcements have been made.

    It’s not clear where exactly Meyer is asserting that more Potter fun will be built, whether it’s for the other Universal Studios theme parks in Hollywood, Calif. and Singapore or elsewhere. But his reply couldn’t be any clearer that there is definitely more theme park excitement in store for Harry Potter fans.
