“Lumos” — you’ll want to light up your wands before stepping into this mysterious forbidden forest 🪄

Entrance to Harry Potter A Forbidden Forest Experience - Harry Potter Experience Singapore

Yes, the forbidden forest might be off-limits and dangerous but as wizards and witches of Hogwarts, that’s what makes exploring it fun!

So, for all you Potterheads, here’s a sneak peek into the new Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest in Singapore where we got up close to creatures from the Harry Potter™ and the Fantastic Beasts™ films like Hippogriffs and Nifflers, and even got to do a spell battle.

Try bowing to the majestic Hippogriff and if you’re worthy (like me), you’ll get a bow back!

Celeste can attest that the troll did not smell good.

Harry Potter Forbidden Forest App -  Forbidden Forest Experience

*Pro-tip: Look out for these symbols along the trail! This is where you can use the HP Forbidden Forest Experience App and learn fun facts about the Wizarding World.

We even spotted Hagrid taking Fang out for a walk! 

HP Aragog -  Forbidden Forest Experience

Be careful though, you might run into Aragog on the way 🕷️


There are also interactive segments where you can wave your “wand” or hand to cast a spell! This one’ll tell you what your Patronus is mine’s a rabbit!

*Pro-tip: Bring your own wand or grab a new one at the merch shop before entering the forest! There are plenty of photo spots to use it😅


Are you team Gryffindor or team Slytherin?
