Joel Pace built a replica of the flying car from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" to cheer up his wife in After seeing how much the community enjoyed their display in , the Paces decided to go all out for Halloween , transforming their yard into a full replica of Diagon Alley. Joel and Amanda work with their friends and artists in the community to bring the display to life. Joel told Insider that foam insulation board is his primary building material. The designs have evolved as Joel gets more experience with the boards.
The rounding technique also allowed him to make Weasleys' Wizards Wheezes.

The display also features a graveyard for some of the most beloved "Harry Potter" characters, like Professor Dumbledore and Harry's parents. Moments from almost every "Harry Potter" book are honored in the decorations. Having tried the latter, I can vouch for its deliciousness. While most of us were unable to ride the principal Diagon Alley attraction, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, we did get a look at the initial portion of the queue.
Per J. This is the first thing you see as you enter Diagon Alley, as it sits at the end of the street and features a giant dragon atop its roof. As yet another wonderful detail of the area, the dragon actually breathes fire at regular intervals throughout the day.

When you hear a roar, look up and brace for the heat. Animatronic goblins line the side walls, all sitting at their desks, attending to business. If you ring a bell at one of the desks, its goblin attendant will actually turn his head to look right at you. At the end of the hallway sits the moody goblin that gave Harry, Ron, and Hermione looking like Bellatrix Lestrange trouble at the beginning of Deathly Hallows — Part 2. Then you step into the queue, which begins in a hallway lined with books, desks, and moving newspapers.
This is as far as we got before the ride broke down, but it was rather impressive nonetheless.
The Real Diagon Alley
Though the Escape from Gringotts ride is billed as the main attraction in Diagon Alley, once you start walking around it will become abundantly clear that the shops are a close second. There are a few stores in the Hogsmeade area, but Diagon Alley is filled to the brim with unique, charismatic stores that are certain to break your wallet. The anticipation for the shops is so high that the designers have actually built queues just to get into some of the stores. Presumably this will make it easier to move around each shop during peak park hours.
Need some wizarding supplies? There is no shortage of Harry Potter merchandise for sale. Quality Quidditch Supplies carries sporting wear think rugby uniforms , which again is of a high quality that is rarely found in your standard theme park. Another highlight is Magical Menagerie, which sells a number of magical creatures.
Ollivander will find the right magic stick for you, with a fun little show to go along with it. Ollivander's been set up in the Harry Potter park since , but his Diagon Alley branch is much, much larger to hold the crowds in. Just like Harry, you can travel from London to Hogwarts in style in the Hogwarts Express, which will take you back and forth between Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade in style.
Amazing special effects during the ride include a Dementor attack. Draco Malfoy used the Hand of Glory "insert a candle and it gives light only to the holder" in one of his several dumb failed plots to kill Professor Dumbledore. He bought it from Borgin and Burke's shop in Knockturn Alley, where you can find it today. Sadly, this tattoo parlor down Knockturn Alley is not an actual establishment and kids can't get real tattoos here. But the "animated tattoo" effects you can see if you peer in the window are worth the trip down seedy, dark Knockturn.
This is the kind of lock you have to pick if you want to break into a Gringotts vault. Located just off Diagon Alley, the perpetually nighttime Knockturn Alley is where you go if you want to murder somebody and need the right magic to do it. You can also buy jewelry note: jewelry may carry a death curse. You don't have to go in Diagon Alley to find an easter egg.
Hang out near 12 Grimmauld Place outside the area, and watch the windows to see Sirius Black's house elf Kreacher peer out at you. Oh, he doesn't like Muggles.
Gringotts Bank, and the thrill ride inside its doors, looms at the end of Diagon Alley's main drag. The stuffed animals for sale in the Magical Menagerie are all characters from the books, from Fluffy the Cerberus to Buckbeak the Hippogriff.
