P Is for Pride

We surprised the kids last week with a day off of school in order to visit Harry Potter: Magic at Play in Chicago’s Water Tower Place.

At Harry Potter: Magic at Play, guests discover, interact and explore their way through the experience, which is designed to engage imaginations and bring out the young witch or wizard in everyone.

Wizards and witches of all ages are welcome at this experience celebrating the Wizarding World at Harry Potter: Magic at Play at Chicago’s iconic Water Tower Place. We were invited to the experience as guests and enjoyed every minute of it.

Created by Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and Original X Productions (OGX), the first-of-its-kind experience allows fans of all ages to engage with the Wizarding World like never before through 30,000 square feet of hands-on magical interactivity including games, exploration, sensory activations and more that celebrate Harry’s own journey in discovering the wizarding world.

Tickets are on sale on at HarryPotterMagicAtPlay.com and start at $37.50 for adults and $29.50 for children 9 and under.

At Harry Potter: Magic at Play, the journey begins at 4 Privet Drive.

Explore the Dursley’s living room taking care to not disturb anyone in the cupboard under the stairs; step onto a boat and prepare to cross the Great Lake to Hogwarts; attend some of Hogwarts’ most beloved classes, mastering “Wingardium Leviosa” and levitating a feather in Charms, exploring the Potions dungeon with all senses and fending off a swarm of Cornish Pixies in Defense Against the Dark Arts; practice Quidditch fundamentals for all player positions; play amid Hagrid’s pumpkin patch and traverse the Forbidden Forest; and so much more.

A multitude of iconic experiences and surprises await guests throughout the space as they forge their path through Harry’s journey.

Harry Potter: Magic at Play features a gift shop open to both ticketed and non-ticketed guests. The gift shop offers a wide range of bespoke and licensed items alongside themed food and beverage including the beloved Butterbeer. The coffee cups, hats, and holiday ornaments are particularly cute.

Visitors wishing to send word to friends and family about their magical experience can do so via owl post – a much faster alternative to Muggle mail.
