ou’ll get to see the incredible size and detail of actual sets, costumes, animatronics, special effects and props that were actually used in all of the eight Harry Potter films.

Safe to say we were already excited! But now, they’ve just announced that the triple-decker Knight Bushas now rolled into the attraction too!

The Knight Bus debuted in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ and was one of the most complicated pieces to create in the production.

John Richardson, Special Effects Supervisor, said:

“The Knight Bus was not a CGI Creation as many people thought but in fact a real-life working bus. It was constructed by cutting up two iconic Routemaster buses, reworking the structure and bolting it all back together to provide one bus with three decks.

One interesting challenge that arose during the shooting of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was that we could not drive the vehicle across London due to the number of low bridges in and around the capital. This meant that we had to transport the bus in two pieces between locations and put it back together as required for filming.”
