Harry Potter Fans Expected To Line Up For New LEGO Hogwarts

Hogwarts Comes To Dreamworld

Harry Potter Fans Expected To Line Up For New LEGO Hogwarts LEGO® Harry Potter™ 71043 Hogwarts™ Castle

Anyone with a riddikulus Harry Potter addiction will be lined up outside Dreamworld's Lego store tonight, to get their hands on their own school of witchcraft and wizardry.

The shop will be the first in the Southern Hemisphere to release the new Lego Hogwarts Castle.

The theme park was expecting a line out the door ahead of the official launch of the 6,020 piece set at midnight on Friday.


“Last time we had a limited-edition product in store (the Stars Wars Millennium Falcon UCS) we had people camping out overnight to be the first to purchase it, so thought this time we would open the doors at midnight for them,” Philip Hancox, General Manager Marketing said.

The set, priced at $649.99, includes the Secret Chamber, the Whomping Willow, classrooms, Hagrid's hut and more.

“For the midnight opening we want to encourage everyone to come dressed up in Harry Potter outfits, like our staff will be,” said Mr Hancox.

There will be 400 sets available in the first release.
