    I don't know about your clue, but a long time ago I speculated an Ollivanders theater would be replaced by something else since the demand isn't really there and you gave me a thumbs up.

    Wow, really? Back to long lines in hogsmeade then.

    Now the question is, converted to what?

    Shop, eatery, new show or something totally different.

    Either way nice info, thanks :thumbsup:

    Oh and well done @Jwhee, nice work.

    They are closing one of the Ollivander's shop rooms and replacing it with some other shop?

    Ooops, others beat me to it.

    So, what don't they have that they might need? Stuffed Dobbys and Winkys... wait, Winky was cut from the films. Stuffed Kreachers and Dobbys... Daggers... grave stones, rag loin cloths.

    Assuming they'd be as popular in WWOHP (objectively they'd probably be more popular), they'd need a shop to themselves

    There are three Ollivanders Theaters in Diagon, as Quint's clue confirms. If so, that still would leave two of them in operation...... Good sleuthing for Quint, once again. :thumbsup:

    Doesn't have to be a big shop. I feel like the Gringotts money store with the goblin is comparable in size to an Ollivander's Theater.

    Potter specializes in tiny store spaces so that shouldn't pose a problem....Cool if they do it. They're always doing some small thing in Diagon to keep it fresh, be it store location changes, new stores, doing entertainment in the evening during the slower seasons, etc.

    Does this store make bank? :lol:

    Puns aside always seemed a bit of a wasted space to me, even with the cool animatronic it feels little lacking.

    It's one in Hogsmeade. Three in Diagon Alley.

    That's one of the best entertainment's in the park. Alene carries on a conversation with the goblin every time we pop in there. I don't even think it matters if they make money. It's a damn good attraction.

    They did their jobs well, the doors to the rooms are hidden as shelves of boxes in that hallway.
