A spellbinding woodland experience is returning to Arley Hall this October – and muggles are invited to join in!
‘Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience’ will be back at Arley Hall & Gardens near Northwich for a second year, following its debut in 2021.
Warner Bros bosses have announced their breathtaking light trail will open from 15th October for wizards, witches and muggles of all ages to enjoy.
It’s inspired by the iconic Forbidden Forest from the JK Rowling books, and features creatures from both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series.
Mesmerising lights will transform the landscape into a magical outdoor trail, where visitors can once again discover some of their favourite moments from the wizarding world.
They’ll encounter mystical creatures such as hippogriffs, centaurs, unicorns and nifﬂers – and be able to practise casting their very own spells.
Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience is suitable for the whole family to enjoy and provides plenty for fans of all ages to see and do.
There will be a seasonally themed village, and an on-site shop packed with Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise to take home.
Visitors can also enjoy a wide range of food and drinks – including fan favourite butterbeer alongside edible wands and hearty winter warmers.
These include decadent hot chocolates, mulled wine, traditional roast dinners, and pie and mash – all with vegan and gluten-free options.
The outdoor experience was created by Warner Bros Themed Entertainment in partnership with leading entertainment discovery platform Fever, as well as award-winning theatrical designers and experiential creators Thinkwell and their partners Unify.
The walking tour trail takes around 45-75 minutes, and the whole experience is expected to last from an hour to an hour and a half.
Ticket prices start from £24 and are available online.
