If you haven’t wondered what it would be like to attend classes at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy, which house you might belong to, or what quidditch position you’d be best suited to, then you’re probably not a Harry Potter fan.
But if you wondered far too much about all of the above, you may be able to make at least part of that fantasy come true.
Screen Crush reports that on Thursday, December 3 at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London, Hogwarts Great Hall will be decked out in its Christmas-y best and will host Harry Potter superfans for a holiday feast. A wand from Ollivander’s will be waiting at each seat and attendees will have the opportunity to scarf down two courses from a menu inspired by the films (e.g. Flaming Christmas Pudding).
So what’s the catch, you ask? The price. The price is most certainly the catch. The experience will set you back 230 British pounds, which translates to around $350 American dollars. Yikes.
That being said, we’re sure there are some fans out there that would consider that a pittance for what’s included in this tour.
In addition to dinner, the package allows fans to explore iconic sets from the movie, take dessert on Platform 9 3/4 alongside the Hogwarts Express, take a stroll up Diagon Alley, drink Butterbeer in the backlot cafe, and catch a glimpse of the Hogwarts castle exterior, dusted with a layer of (fake) snow.
So long as he who must not be named isn’t on the guest list, that sounds like a pretty good time.
The only thing that’s missing is shot of polyjuice potion to let you assume the identity of your favorite character. We call Professor Dumbledore.
Merry Christmas, Potter fans!
