A Forbidden Forest Experience

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!
A variety of Harry Potter-licensed merchandise will be available for purchase at the event grounds. From the usual cups and bags, to mini trinkets, you can peruse the shop and decide on whether you want to add on to your collection of Harry Potter merchandise. Or, grab one of the adorable Hedwig plushies to snuggle with in your bed!

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!
