Q: How much money does Harry Potter make Universal Orlando?
A: Well some of this question was answered on Friday when Universal Orlando released its quarter 3 results, and what cracking results they are as well, showing that the popularity of Mr Potter was well worth the Universal outlay.
Attendance increased by 36% for the three months ending Sept. 26 to 3.7 million people over the same period last year! and even more importantly visitors to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter couldn’t get enough of wands, broomsticks and butterbeer, as the company stated revenue was up 62% to $364 million. Operating profit more than doubled to $127 million and net profit rocketed to $97 million, a 162% increase.
Plus on Oprah recently JK Rowling spoke the words that Harry Potter fans and Universal Orlando alike had been waiting for… she might not be quite done with the series!!!…. $$$$$
