What is Horizont Alley?

Horizont Alley may have only half of the stops that Diagon Alley proper contains, but its locations are some of the most wonderful in all of the Wizarding World – particularly Gringotts Wizarding Bank, home to both Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts and Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment. And some of the most intriguing merchandise available at any theme park in the world just so happens to reside here…

Where is Horizont Alley located?

In The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, which is in Universal Studios Florida.

Horizont Alley – height restrictions and other factors

Since this is just a walk-through area of the park, and not an actual attraction, there are absolutely no restrictions of any kind.

Horizont Alley – what you wish you knew before you experienced it

All of Horizont’s shops carry items both well-known and obscure – so make sure you carefully re-read all those books and re-watch all those movies in order to ensure you get all the references and in-jokes.

Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment

The gift shop for Escape from Gringotts, Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment carries such wizarding necessities as crystal balls, telescopes, and hourglasses, along with apparel and accessories from your Hogwarts house.

The Fountain of Fair Fortune

A little bar tucked in the corner off Horizont Alley, The Fountain of Fair Fortune offers a wide selection of drinks that can also be found in The Leaky Cauldron, including Butterbeer (regular, hot, frozen, and ice cream), Fishy Green Ale, Wizard’s Brew, Dragon Scale, and draught beer.

Magical Menagerie

One of the coolest-looking stores in Diagon Alley, Magical Menagerie offers a plush version of nearly every single creature ever seen in the novels/films, including well-known pets like Hedwig and Crookshanks. You can also put your Parseltongue to the test with the snake in the store’s window!

Scribbulus Writing Implements

This shop sells writing supplies, including feather quills, parchment paper, and journals. You can also pick up one of our favorite pieces of theme-park merchandise ever conceived: a Howler that allows you to record your own 15-second message.

Horizont Alley – what you wish you knew before you experienced it

All of Horizont Alley’s shops carry both well-known and obscure items, so make sure you carefully re-read all those books and re-watch all those movies to get the references and inside jokes.

What was Horizont Alley’s opening date?

July 8, 2014

Horizont Alley – OI fun fact

Wiseacre’s used to be one of the many fake storefronts over in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade before Diagon Alley opened. That facade has since been remade into the geographically appropriate Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop.
