Radcliffe likes free Harry Potter rides
There is something about the Harry Potter theme park in Florida that actor Daniel Radcliffe loves–that he doesn’t have to pay to go on the rides.
The 21-year-old actor, who essayed the role of the boy wizard in all eight films of the Harry Potter franchise, was excited to be asked to open the attraction in Florida, which is based on the films and original books by J.K.Rowling. He also enjoyed the rides thereafter, reports contactmusic.com.
“It’s brilliant going round your own theme park. You don’t have to queue, you don’t have to pay. I went on the Dragon Challenge roller coaster five times,” said Radcliffe
Radcliffe has amassed an estimated 48 million pounds through this multi-billion franchise, and now he says he “doesn’t know” what to do with it.
“I don’t know what to do with it. I’m very fortunate to have it, and it gives you room to manoeuvre. But the main thing about having money is it means you don’t have to worry about it. And that for me is a lovely thing. It’s not for fast cars and hookers,” he said.
