An acclaimed immersive new Harry Potter experience makes its U.S. debut this fall at the Morven Park estate near Leesburg. 

After its success in the UK at Arley Hall, Cheshire last year, Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience is a magical woodland light trail arriving at Morven Park in October and running through early December. Tickets went on sale in July and are selling quickly.

The nighttime display is a fully luminescent, outdoor experience created by Warner Bros. and award-winning theatrical designers, complete with realistic sounds, lighting, special effects, and interactive moments from the films. You’ll also come across friendly creatures from the iconic films, like hippogriffs, centaurs, unicorns, and Nifflers, but also those terrifying spiders.

After completing the 90-minute walking trail, visitors will emerge from the forest into a Hogsmeade-inspired village where they may taste themed food and beverages from the franchise and purchase cloaks or wands and souvenirs. The attraction is also partnering with One Tree Planted to give guests the opportunity to donate $1 towards planting a tree and contributing to their efforts of rebuilding forests after fires and floods, providing jobs for social impact, and restoring biodiversity. 

Tickets are available starting at $20 admission for children and $35 for adults. Learn more and buy tickets at
