James and Oliver Phelps who play Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films had taken several visits to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park. The twins were spotted walking out of Zonko’s Joke Shop carrying armfuls of fun wizarding joke gifts and gadgets.
Zonko’s Joke Shop is a favorite amongst Hogwarts students as it features items created by none other then the twins themselves. The story goes that Zonko’s joke shop was closed down once Lord Voldemort gained his second rise to power and Fred and George Weasley decided to buy the shop renaming it Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. The Weasley Twins paid for the shop using the money that Harry gave to them after winning the Triwizard Tournament.
Universal Orlando took Zonko’s Joke Shop and recreated it for Muggles to come and have the opportunity to visit during their time at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
During their visit to the park James and Oliver Phelps not only had fun exploring the Wizarding World of Harry Potter but also took the time to get to know some of their fans while chatting, taking pictures and even posing in front of the Hogwarts Express.
