“When we set out to create Harry Potter™: Magic At Play with our partners at Superfly X, we knew we wanted to bring Harry Potter’s world to fans in a hands-on and tactile way that gives all ages but especially our younger guests the ability to experience and play with the wizarding world like never before,” said Peter van Roden, Senior Vice President, Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, in a news release. “From the moment guests arrive, they are immersed in Harry’s story and are an active participant in their own journey through innovative play, experiential sets, games and more,” he explained.
During the experience, take a unique class like Potions, Charms, and Divination or test your Quidditch skills while perfecting your perfect position.
