Actor Daniel Radcliffe loves the Harry Potter theme park in Florida, as he doesn’t have to pay to go on the rides.
The 21-year-old actor, who essayed the role of the boy wizard in all eight films of the Harry Potter franchise, was excited to be asked to open the attraction in Florida, which is based on the films and original books by JK Rowling. He also enjoyed the rides thereafter.
“It’s brilliant going round your own theme park. You don’t have to queue, you don’t have to pay. I went on the Dragon Challenge roller coaster five times,” said Radcliffe.
The actor has amassed an estimated 48 million pounds through this multi-billion franchise, and he says he “doesn’t know” what to do with it now.
“I’m very fortunate to have it, and it gives you room to manoeuvre. But the main thing about having money is you don’t have to worry about it. And that for me is a lovely thing. It’s not for fast cars and hookers,” he said.
