The official HARRY POTTER Studio Tour will soon offer fans a chance to jump on the real Hogwarts Express!
There may be a mighty fine replica of The Hogwarts Express, but the original steam engine is about to be revealed at a new expansion of the WB HARRY POTTER Studio Tour at Leavesden Studios in London!
On March 19th, the already massive, intricate tour will expand to include “20,000ft² expansion, including the original Hogwarts Express steam engine and a recreation of Platform 9 ¾”.
Fans will be able to:
- Pose with a luggage trolley on Platform 9 ¾ as it disappears through the station’s yellow brick wall and walk along the Hogwarts Express’ adjoining carriage
- Explore the interior carriage set that was used during filming (complete with ‘windows’ that demonstrate the process used to create iconic train scenes from the films such as the escape of Harry’s first Chocolate Frog and the Dementor attack)
- See a selection of prop luggage and find out which character owned which items by turning an interactive dial (characters include Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Luna Lovegood and more)
- Browse a wide range of goodies inspired by the Harry Potter films and, specifically, the Hogwarts Express in a train-themed souvenir shop which will be open on the platform
Warner Bros is asking fans to celebrate the news on social media with the hashtag #HogwartsExpress!
