The Forbidden Forest Experience immerses you into the world of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts too! Admire the scenes and pick out little details as you traverse through the wooded areas. Come face-to-face with Hippogriffs and Unicorns and grab some mystifying pictures for your IG feed! Take a bow in front of a Hippogriff and hope that he bows you back!

You can even have fun and cast your own Patronus spells while at the experience itself! (Psst.. you don't need to bring your own wand!) If you want to know more about the event, you should book your tickets soon!

Merchandise

A variety of Harry Potter-licensed merchandise will be available for purchase at the event grounds.

Or, grab one of the adorable Hedwig plushies to snuggle with in your bed!

Food and Beverages

There's not much to eat inside of the exhibition itself, with only a stall selling Butterber ($14) and cookies ($8). The cookies are in the shape of Harry Potter's glasses and the letter that Harry gets in the movie! Very cute.

If you want more options for food, you can head to the nearby marketplace (right next door) to grab some snacks. Or you can head to the other side of the road and grab a refreshing coconut dessert.

Accessibility

Despite the experience being in the forest, there are restrooms available if you need to use them. The trail is also tar roads, so it's stroller-friendly and wheelchair-friendly too! However, there are some inclines, and the path can be narrow at times. ALternative pathways are available to combat this!

If you are prone to epilepsy, the operations behind this experience have ensured that the light effects used are not triggering for epilepsy-prone visitors. There are some smoke effects and loud music, however, so do take note!

The experience is not spooky. However, if you do have arachnophobia, inform the staff and they can guide you to the spider-free zones! The experience is open to everyone! Children under 12 years old do have to be accompanied by an adult, however, as the trail will be dark in some places.

Do bring an umbrella or rain coat as the attraction will still go on if light rain occurs. It will only be cancelled if there is heavy rain!

Tips For Harry Potter's A Forbidden Forest Experience

Bring an umbrella/poncho

The whole experience is outdoors, and there's virtually no sheltered walkway in the exhibition. If it does rain, bring an umbrella along with you! Or you can get a poncho instead.

Dress up as a Harry Potter character!

Dress up in your house colours if you can! We brought our Slytherin (WOO) robe to the event and it really added to the vibe and was a great addition for pictures! We forgot to bring our own wand but you can too if you want those magical pictures! A lot of the fun of it was truly dressing up as though you're part of the Harry Potter world.

Have a portable fan with you

Despite the exhibition being close to the sea, a chunk of it is within the 'forest' itself, so it can be quite humid at times. We recommend bringing a fan along to stop Singapore's humid weather from ruining the fun!

Bring your kids along!

This exhibition is very kid-friendly and perfect for kids of all ages! Firstly, the photo opportunities are massive and will immerse your kids into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. They're a perfect height to spot the cheeky Nifflers or look up and scan the treeline for owls! The Butterbeer they serve is non-carbonated but very sweet so kids can enjoy them too! The interactive activities are honestly a blast as you can shout the spells and experience 'magic'.

The entire exhibition does have ambient lighting however, there are areas which are pretty dark so do take note!
