Set to open this October, Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience will be a 60- to 90-minute encounter along a dark woodland trail featuring creatures from both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises.

Created with a mix of sound, lights, and special effects, it’s a first-of-its-kind immersive outdoor experience for the Wizarding World.

Tickets for the experience go on sale at 10am on Thursday 29th July and allow guests to follow a trail through a mysterious and magical forest full of interactive moments, mesmerising lights, and theatrical illusions. You’ll come face-to-face with mystical creatures from the Harry Potter and the Fantastic Beasts films, such as Hippogriffs, Centaurs, Unicorns, Nifflers and more.

After all the excitement, an enchanting Village will welcome you with a selection of magical food and drink inspired by the Wizarding World, and a blazing fire to warm you right up.

“The Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience offers fans a new way to enjoy some of the most iconic and magical Wizarding World moments,” Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment’s Peter van Roden said in a statement of the collaboration with global experience agency Thinkwell, experiential consultancy Unify Productions Global, and entertainment company Fever.

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside Thinkwell to bring this incredible light trail to life at Arley Hall & Gardens, a perfect location where the natural beauty of the forest trail and illuminated sets filled with familiar creatures from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series, will make for a magical experience for fans of all ages.”
