Could you survive a night in the Forbidden Forest?
What is a major setting in the Harry Potter book series and movies is now set to be an exciting outdoor attraction on Sentosa Island in Singapore.
Fans of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films can embark on a wondrous woodland adventure at the Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience, which is set to open on Feb 3.
The outdoor experience, created by Warner Bros Discovery Global Themed Entertainment in partnership with entertainment discovery platform Fever, and award-winning theatrical designers Thinkwell and Unify, will see Sentosa's Coastal Trail transformed into the iconic Forbidden Forest, bringing to life some of the most memorable scenes from the Harry Potter franchise.
As you explore the illuminated forest, you will get the chance to encounter magical creatures, such as Hippogriffs, Unicorns, Cornish Pixies, Nifflers and not to forget you might spot Potter’s pet owl Hedwig up in the trees.
Best of all, the experience is interactive, so be sure to strike your best stance for the wand duel photo before trying your hand at casting a Patronus to illuminate the dark woods. The walking trail also features moments such as the flying car crashing into the Whomping Willow.
To support the wild wonders of forests, visitors can also make an optional donation equivalent to the price of a tree (S$1.50, or RM6), which will be used to contribute to reforestation and sustainability projects (through a partnership with One Tree Planted in Singapore).
Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience is making its Asia-Pacific debut in Singapore following a successful run in the United States and Britain.
It opens on Feb 3, 2024 and is suitable for all ages. The outdoor walking trail takes approximately 30-45 minutes, with multiple sessions taking place each night.
