For the next seven days, £49 will get you into an exclusive after-hours event that includes the tour, Butterbeer, a souvenir from the gift shop, and a chance to see special guests, like head prop maker Pierre Bohanna and animal stars! The only catch is that the deal is valid only on the evening of September 26. Still, it’s a wonderful deal!
From Groupon’s website:
Guests will walk the flagstones of the iconic Hogwarts Great Hall before viewing many of the famous sets – including the Ministry of Magic, Dumbledore’s office, and the Gryffindor common room. While exploring the attraction, guests will also be able to enjoy experiences that have been specifically added for Groupon members, like watching prop-makers (who worked on the films with head prop-maker Pierre Bohanna) create wands just as they did during filming, meeting the real feathered and furry animal actors who starred in the film series, and enjoying a special demonstration courtesy of the special effects supervisor from the films.
Guests will get the chance to learn wand moves and will be given the chance to ‘fly’ a broomstick like a member of the cast in the Studio Tour’s green screen experience. During a short break in the attraction’s backlot, guests will be able to enjoy a hotdog, drink, and of course, Butterbeer before duelling Death Eaters on the Diagon Alley set with their newly learnt wand skills. Finally, guests will depart with a souvenir from the studio shop.
Sounds like it might be time for many of you to take another trip! In the meantime, you can read MuggleNet’s most recent report from the tour, highlighting the current Bludgers and Broomsticks feature!
