It’s time to grab your robe, your owl and your wand because Auckland is set to get a Wizarding Academy Express in 2020.
Literally held on a steam train, the Wizarding Academy Express will have each carriage a ‘house’ that has both a captain and professor on board. During the one to one-and-a-half hour train trip, you’ll be taken through a variety of magical lessons including spell casting and potion classes. There are six different carriages, each with their own unique personality after which it was named: think Gwazidor who is energetic and firey or Longmagriff who is whimsical and creative.
Held on Saturday, 28 March 2020, there are four different sessions: 9:45am, 11:30am, 1:15pm and 3:00pm. There are two levels of tickets available. General includes the immersive experience as well as a graduation pin and the VIW (Very Important Wizard) carriage also includes Saremcroft Brew, a souvenir and is in a smaller carriage so you’ll get more wizarding attention.
Catering for ages 5 to 305, the Wizard’s Academy is an experience designed for Witches, Wizards, Warlocks and all types of magical beings.
Tickets go on sale today, so we suggest grabbing them ASAP because they’re sure to be snapped up faster than a discount sale at Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes.
