From original costumes and props on display, to firsthand learning of how the world’s greatest book series was brought to life….fans will be in their element.
Some highlights to watch out for at the Tokyo Studio Tour include a Sound Stage, a garden decked out in statues of mythical creatures from both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies, and a lively Hogsmeade Train Station, and other exhibition spaces.
Additionally, guests can enjoy a range of immersive experiences such as hopping on a broomstick, watching a Quidditch match, sipping butterbeer in the world’s largest Butterbeer Bar, and buying all things HP at one of the world’s largest Harry Potter stores. Plus, there are interactive activities exclusive to the Japan set only.
We can’t forget about the unique dining experiences on offer. For example, there is a Frog Café, resembling the frog sweets from the movies, a Back Lot Café where you can indulge on afternoon tea, and a huge food hall, offering all-day dishes, from breakfast to dinner.
The original studio in London has welcomed more than 18 million visitors since opening in 2012. Surely, this Harry Potter Tour would be an adventure of a lifetime and well-worth-the-travel for Potter fans in Singapore. Buy tickets via the Warner Bros. Studio Tour website.
