Daniel RadcliffeThe cast members of Harry Potter, including Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton, walked a red carpet at a VIP event at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the new theme park celebrating its grand opening at the Universal Orlando resort in Florida.

The park recreates the mythical Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from JK Rowling’s phenomenally popular novels about a boy wizard. The actors who starred in the movie version were filmed and then projected to create a presence on some of the rides, giving the impression the characters are there with park visitors.

“There’s never a moment here where the illusion dissipates,” Radcliffe said. “I’ve now ‘made it’ officially. This is kind of the pinnacle. It doesn’t get better than this,” Radcliffe said.
