Universal Studios Hollywood may be shut in California, but Universal CityWalk has debuted ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Sweets & Treats’, where fans can get a taste of Butterbeer.

‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Sweets & Treats’ is a new walk-up location serving the sweets, treats and Butterbeer usually found at Universal Studios Hollywood.

So far, Comcast has only been able to reopen Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Japan, while Universal Studios Hollywood remains closed in California.

The temporary attraction will be selling traditional cold, frozen and hot Butterbeer, as well as Butterbeer-flavoured ice-cream, cinnamon churros and Chocolate Frogs.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Sweets & Treats will be open on weekends from Friday through Sunday at Universal CityWalk. It opened on November 20.

Universal Orlando Resort recently unveiled its first-ever holiday tour, which includes access to exclusive holiday experiences, such as meeting The Grinch.

The resort also unwrapped its lineup of festive entertainment for this year’s Christmas, which runs from November 14 through January 3, 2021.

As part of the seasonal experience, Universal has transformed The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Universal Studios Florida’s Diagon Alley and London boast festive décor, holiday treats and drinks, and an exclusive show prepared by Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees.

Universal’s Islands of Adventure is also welcoming Christmas at Hogsmeade, where shops are decorated with garlands and lights and seasonal music is provided by the Frog Choir.

Universal CityWalk Hollywood is currently holding a drive-in screening and experience of The Croods: A New Age, as cinemas remain closed in Los Angeles.

Earlier this year, Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter and Platform 9 ¾ Shops launched the world’s first bottled Butterbeer, made and brewed in the UK.
