If you've ever wondered what it's like to have He Who Must Not Be Named after you, you're about to find out! Head deep underground through underground vaults and twisty passage-ways - a thrilling 3D rollercoaster adventure.

An iconic replica from the books and films, experience a magical, immersive ride from Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade Station and watch the British countryside chug by.


4. Have a Butterbeer in The Three Broomsticks, Hogsmeade...


Stroll through Hogsmeade, the quaint wizarding village, and take a pit-stop in The Three Broomsticks for a refreshing Butterbeer or Pumpkin Juice (both are non-alcoholic, so kid-friendly!).


5. Get your wand at Ollivander's on Diagon Alley...

The wand chooses the wizard - and you get one from Ollivander, the most famous wandmaker in the wizarding world. Let the magic making begin!
