Harry Potter Saved Florida’s Economy

It was once the state whose name we dare not speak but thanks to Harry Potter it looks like Florida’s economy is booming.  Yahoo reports on the tourism increase in the state of Florida and how it has to do with the Harry potter franchise. The new Harry Potter themed attractions have helped spark an increase in tourism since 2010.

“59 million people went through Orlando last year. it’s up some 27% some from the year prior. This is a booming economy and again they credit it to harry potter and the rest of the theme parks that just pour money…”  -Jeff Macke, Yahoo Finance.

After seeing how well this has worked in Orlando I bet you will start to see other movie theme parks in other cities in America. After my last visit to Detroit it appeared that they are experimenting with a realistic take on the hunger games.
