Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience To Debut In The Fall

Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience is a new outdoor experience for fans of the Harry Potter franchise, which will debut in the UK this fall. The Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience is, in fact, a woodland light trail for attendees to walk in the evenings, over at Arley Hall in Cheshire, UK; woodland grounds will be transformed into an illuminated path that's packed with stylistic decorum of the Harry Potter Universe, including appearances from some fan-favorite fantastic beasts that are known to inhabit the forest regions of the J.K. Rowling's ever-expanding Wizarding World franchise.

You can get the details of Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience from the press announcement by Warner Bros. and Thinkwell Group, the company that designed this Harry Potter outdoor experience:

Set in the beautiful woodland at Arley Hall & Gardens, this nighttime trail experience has been created by award-winning theatrical designers and experiential creators.


Celebrating some of the most iconic forest scenes from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, visitors can interact with magical characters and cast their own spells, bringing the fantastical world to life.
