You can see Kreacher the House Elf appearing at the new Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Diagon Alley (WWoHP). This is one of the hidden gems at Wizarding World park. Most guests visiting Universal Orlando completely miss this experience.
Kreacher is located in the London area, down the road from King’s Cross. There are several houses lined up with stoops and even 2nd floors. You can find Kreacher in this area of London.
Who is Kreacher the House Elf?
If you are not a Harry Potter fanatic, you may be asking yourself “who is Kreacher the House Elf?” This character is in the Harry Potter books and movies. Kreacher is a house-elf. A house-elf severs his family and they are very loyal. Kreacher is a house-elf that served the House of Black. When Sirius Black died, Kreacher was then left to Harry Potter.
Kreacher resides at 12 Grimmauld Place. This area is outside Diagon Alley. Look for 12 Gimmauld Place. This is the Black House. As mentioned earlier, this is right down the road from King’s Cross. You will see a row of houses with stoops. Look for the Black House. Then look above the house to the 2nd floor. There is a window with a light see-through curtain. This is where Kreacher will peer out.
You may need to be patient, because he only appears every few minutes. You can see him peeking out of the 2nd floor window. He creepily pulls the window treatments and peeks out of the window. This does happen once per minute. You have to watch the window that’s directly above the number 12 door.
Kreacher peeking out of the window is seriously creepy! He’s obviously an animatronic figure, but what was interesting to me was that his hand truly disappears when he’s not peeking out of the window.
This means his animatronic hand has to reach up, grab the edge of the right curtain, and pull it back to peer out over Universal Studios.
Watch this quick video to see Kreacher the House Elf for yourself.
As some extra fun, watch Kreacher up close. Then take a few steps back. You will be amazed how many people will stop to get a picture in front of the Black residence, but never look up to actually see Kreacher. Many people do not even know he is there. You now know the secret to share with your family. Don’t forget to get a selfie with Kreacher, before you head into Diagon Alley.
What did you think of Kreacher? Is he creepy?
