Stopovers at Changi airport can now be truly magical with realistic wizardry setups
If you still haven’t received your letter from Hogwarts, don’t worry. Now you have the chance to live like Harry Potter while travelling abroad.
The Singapore airport has teamed up with Warner Bros to give travellers the opportunity to explore a magnificent recreation of Hogsmeade Village, dress up as a wizard, learn how to cast a spell, and practice their Quidditch skills.
Four life-sized setups are spread across the airport’s three terminals, all inspired by some of the most iconic locations seen in the movies, such as Diagon Alley or the Whomping Willow found on the grounds at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It also features Newt Scamander’s menagerie from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which has just opened in cinemas.
A series of interactive activities and themed backdrops transport fans into the wizarding world, providing hours of fun for fans of all ages.
Inspired by the original Hogsmeade Village in the Harry Potter series, the airport has a breathtaking large-scale setup in T3’s departure hall. The scene depicts the picturesque town with snowy rooftops set against a backdrop of the grand Hogwarts castle seen in the distance.
Passengers can look out for replicas of the town’s most well-known stores like Zonko’s Joke Shop, Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop, Owl Post and the sweet shop Honeydukes. Fans can also get up close with a recreation of the iconic Hogwarts Express or take pictures of themselves as one of the many magical folks that frequent Hogsmeade.
The displays will decorate the Changi Airport until mid-February 2019.
