The Dark Arts feature returns to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter from Friday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 7, offering fans the chance to explore their darker side through the Studio Tour.
The Dark Arts feature will see the Dark Mark projected throughout the tour for fans to follow. Guests can collect a Studio Tour passport once they arrive and go on the hunt for the Dark Mark between the trees of the Forbidden Forest, the turrets of Hogwarts Castle, and more.
To celebrate Hallowe’en, the floating pumpkins will return to the Great Hall, as seen in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” as well as the massive Hallowe’en feast.
Visitors to the Studio Tour can also learn the moves behind a wand combat scene, like the Battle of Hogwarts, in a live duel with Death Eaters. Fans will learn a sequence from the battle scene and practice their spells on Death Eaters during their visit.
Those who consider themselves brave enough can dine amongst Death Eaters during the Studio Tour’s Hogwarts After Dark events. Happening on Oct. 6-8 from 7:30 p.m. to midnight, guests ages 18 and older will start their evening with smoking dry ice cocktails and canapés before heading into the Great Hall to enjoy a two-course dinner amongst the interior sets from the films — including the Potions classroom and Dumbledore’s office. The lights will be dimmed and the music will take on a more foreboding tone as the Studio Tour is patrolled by Death Eaters for the evening.
After the meal, guests will grab a lantern and follow the spiders into the Forbidden Forest, where dessert will be served amongst the trees and creatures found there. Throughout the night, guests can duel with Death Eaters and learn more about movie magic, like creating troll snot and unicorn blood.
Tickets for Hogwarts After Dark will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Aug. 24 for Harry Potter Gold members and Aug. 26 for general admission, and are priced at £260 ($354.12 USD). Tickets to the event include arrival cocktails and a canapé reception, a two-course dinner served amongst the interior sets with a tailored drinks package, Death Eater entertainment during dinner, a guest appearance from Paul Harris to teach wand combat, desserts in the Forbidden Forest and further drinks on Platform 9 ¾, butterbeer and a souvenir green screen photo, a personalized character wand for each guest, and return shuttle service to Watford Junction.
