The experience will open at Arley Hall in Cheshire, U.K., where the woodland will be transformed into a magical outdoor light trail in the evenings. The illuminated path will include several surprises, including Hippogriffs, centaurs, unicorns, Nifflers, and more.

In addition to seeing the magical forest come to life, guests of all ages can also discover a variety of food and drinks in the seasonally-themed village and browse Harry Potter and Fantastic beasts merchandise in the on-site shop.

“The Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience offers fans a new way to enjoy some of the most iconic and magical wizarding world moments,” said Peter van Roden, senior vice president of Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to be working alongside Thinkwell to bring this incredible light trail to life at Arley Hall & Gardens, a perfect location where the natural beauty of the forest trail and illuminated sets filled with familiar creatures from the ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series, will make for a magical experience for fans of all ages.”

The one-way path is accessible and COVID-19 safe, and follows the latest government guidelines. More details can be found here.
