Video Tour of Zonkos, Honeydukes, and Three Broomsticks

by Tim_Jones on January 7, 2011

I thought I'd share a video of ours that features Three Broomsticks, Honeydukes, and Zonkos Joke Shop from near the opening day of the Harry Potter park.  At this point, the shops and restaurant were still pretty empty, as this was from before the grand opening -- a soft-opening period that Universal didn't announce, they just started letting people in the park.

Three Brooomsticks

Three Broomsticks is the only restaurant in the Harry Potter theme park, although you will find kiosks with snacks in various locations throughout Hogsmeade.  The restaurant features counter-service for some traditional English fare, including a "Shepherd's Pie," roasted chicken, pasties, and more.  It's one of the best themed buildings in the new park and if you want to give it a try, come in for breakfast or before/after lunch.  Right at lunch time, it's crazy busy.

My personal favorite is their chicken.  I think their Shepherd's Pie tastes a little funny.  An interesting bit of trivia: every piece of drink and food inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter had to be sent to J.K. Rowling for approval!  Universal was Fed-Ex'ing all kinds of food across the pond!


Honeydukes is the candy store right from the Harry Potter books.  The store features chocolate frogs, Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, Mr. Clippy's Clip Joint Clippings, and on and on.  The colors will blow you away, as will some of the prices.

Another interesting tip on this store: you can buy Pumpkin Juice from a cooler in this store.  Oftentimes, this is the shortest line for a drink in the Wizarding World.


Zonko's Joke Shop was a favourite place for Hogwarts students to shop on Hogsmeade trips. As it carried "jokes and tricks to fulfil even Fred and George Weasley's wildest dreams." Such products were Dungbombs, Hiccough Sweets, Frog Spawn Soap, Sugar Quills and Nose-Biting Teacups.

In the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, you can visit Zonko's to buy Extendable Ears, rubber chicken, U-No-Poo, whoopee cushions, and many other jokes and pranks.  They also have a giant bell to ring!
