Potterheads, it’s your lucky day, as this is the kind of news we’d expect to hear after taking a swig of Felix Felicis — the ‘Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience’ will be making its Asia-Pacific debut in Singapore early next year, where we’ll get to discover magical creatures and interactive experiences along a breathtaking outdoor light trail.
The unique experience is set to run from 3 February 2024, and will take over the Coastal Trail on Sentosa Island.
Whether you’re in Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or well, a regular muggle, you’ll get to immerse yourself in the mysterious Forbidden Forest, encountering some of the most recognisable mystical creatures from the Wizarding World such as Hippogriffs, Unicorns, and Nifflers, perhaps a stray spider or two.
Part of the magical experience sees us wielding wands and casting spells too (Expecto Patronum, anyone?), in the shroud of trees lit up by mesmerising lights. Gear up for a wand duel, or, who knows, you might just be able to spot the form of your Patronus Charm before it vanishes into the night! Along the way, expect to see your favourite scenes come to life, including Arthur Weasley’s flying car, which make for perfect photo opportunities as you journey along the lush woodland trail.
You’ll also get to try the famous Butterbeer from the books and movies, and pick up exclusive merchandise from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies at the gift shop.
Presented by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment in partnership with Fever and IMG, the experience has had a successful run in the US and the UK, and will similarly delight audiences here; it’s also designed for fans of all ages.
Tickets will be available for purchase from 16 November, starting at $51 for adults and $39 for children. Avid fans may put their names down on a waitlist, in order to unlock exclusive early access to secure tickets.
