The forest hides many secrets…
A woodland trail inspired by the Forbidden Forest from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series is set to open in New York’s stunning Hudson Valley this autumn — and tickets are now on sale! After announcing its U.S. debut in Leesburg, VA, it will be arriving in Westchester County on October 22 to take fans on a journey that will quite literally illuminate some of their favorite Forbidden Forest moments! Only three hours from Boston at the expansive Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park in Westchester County, NY, the incredible experience makes for a perfect getaway if you’re looking to escape the city.
With illuminating sets, atmospheric lighting and magical creatures from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series, there is plenty to discover along the way.
Transforming the beautiful location into a spectacular outdoor light trail inspired by the wizarding world, guests are invited to step into a magical woodland filled with curious creatures and characters from both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series taking up residence in this Forbidden Forest.
An interactive experience packed with surprises — aspiring witches and wizards will come face to face with Centaurs, bow to a Hippogriff, cast a mesmerizing Patronus, and even spy some cheeky Nifflers. That is, all before stumbling upon a charming village where guests can enjoy food and drinks under the stars and shop official Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise.
Created by Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and award-winning theatrical designers and experiential creators — Thinkwell, Unify, and Fever — Harry Potter fans will be able to enjoy plenty of awe-inspiring activities, interactions, and photo opportunities. The entire family can expect something new to uncover at every turn.
