If you've refused to acknowledge a reality without magic and wizards after the Harry Potter books and films ended, Universal Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter will now let you further live out your fantasies with new interactive wands that bring many parts of the attraction to life.

The wands will be available for purchase at stores inside the park's fictional town of Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, and with a flick of the wrist, and repeating a correct spell, they can be used to trigger animated characters, sounds, and lights around the attraction wherever an embedded bronze medallion is found.


For parents it's a great way to get their kids started in witchcraft, instead of them having to learn about it from that creepy kid at their high school who always dresses in black. And for kids it's a valuable lesson about waiting in lines while adult Harry Potter fans monopolize each of the magical locations at the park. [Universal Orlando Resort]
