Hogwarts House Shirts, New Chicken Restaurant, Construction Updates & More: Universal Studios Hollywood Photo Report 3/31/22
Quiet on set; we’re ready to roll! We headed out to Universal Studios Hollywood today to check in on the many construction projects happening at the park and see what else we could find to dazzle and delight. So come along to see everything we found at Universal Studios Hollywood in today’s photo report.
Before we even left the parking structure, we were already logging updates on one of the many construction sites around the park. This house, likely for Halloween Horror Nights, is being built in the exterior lot of the Curious George structure.
No word on which maze this may be, but it does look to be a classic house-style façade.
From up here on the structure, we get an impressive view of the valley.
We can see the major construction going on at the far end of Universal Studios’ lot, with these four new buildings.
And we also get some fantastic views of the backlot sets from up high.
Construction at Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen is coming along, with lots of trenching work being done out front.
Voodoo Doughnut has some cute oversized doughnuts on display for spring.
We found some Universal Studios branded apparel in the park today, including the shirts above and below. You can see everything we found right here.
Heading into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, we found ourselves in the market for some magic.
Ollivanders is the very last word in wands, and this young witch seems to have just found her match.
In Filch’s Emporium, we came across some new Hogwarts house banner flags that showcase the personality traits of each house.
And we also found some shirts that feature the house traits as well. The black shirt with colorful writing, as seen above, is the youth shirt and the colorful shirt with white writing, as seen below, is for adults. Take a look at all the house designs right here.
The Simpsons Ride has reopened from its refurbishment and looks better than ever.
From the StarWay, we can check in on the Super Nintendo World construction progress.
We also noticed that it may be time for Transformers the Ride – 3D to get some TLC. The facade is really faded and has seen better days. With so many people about to flood the park for the summer, now would have been a good time to get a touch-up. Oh well.
