Harry Potter: Magic at Play experience to open in Chicago

Harry Potter: Magic at Play, a magical touring experience, is set to debut at Chicago’s Water Tower Place on 11 November 2022. Tickets go on sale on 3 August.

Created by Superfly X and Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, Harry Potter: Magic at Play will offer 30,000 square feet of interactive activities, including games, exploration and sensory attractions.

Peter van Roden, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, said the attraction brings the Wizarding World to fans in a “hands-on and tactile way that gives all ages but especially our younger guests the ability to experience and play”.

“From the moment guests arrive, they are immersed in Harry’s story and are an active participant in their own journey through innovative play, experiential sets, games and more,” he added.

According to a news release, the journey starts at 4 Privet Drive. Guests can explore the Dursley family’s living room before sailing across the Great Lake to Hogwarts.
