Harry Potter attraction opens at Universal Studios

Harry Potter fans in Japan are checking out a big new attraction based on the bestselling series.

The "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" opened today at Universal Studios in Osaka.

With the stroke of a magic wand, customers rushed in for a look.

Nearly 3000 people had waited in line, some of them since Monday.

The "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" has various attractions and faithfully reproduces Hogwarts Castle.

People can also get a taste of “butterbeer” at The Three Broomsticks.

Some attractions had three-hour lines immediately after the park opened.

Universal Studios spent about 450 million dollars to create the magical world.
