UPDATED: Ticket Registration Now Open for “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite” Fan Festival
Just days after Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was released, Niantic and WB Games announced the app’s first live event, a fan festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. We now have more details about the upcoming Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival, as reported during San Diego Comic-Con.
The Fan Festival will be held from August 31 to September 1 at White River State Park in Indianapolis. Both days of the event will offer the same experience, the game’s website notes, although you can only choose one day. Tickets are $30 for general access or $40 for early access. Those with early access tickets will be able to join in the excitement starting at 9 a.m. on the day of their ticketed event, while those with general access tickets will be able to join starting at 11 a.m. on that day. The event will run until 7 p.m. for both ticket categories.
Registration for tickets to the event is now live in the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite app, although registration will not guarantee that you will receive an event ticket. Additional details are available on the Fan Festival’s website.
We have also included the full press release from the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite team below. If you’re wondering what bonuses you can expect in the game, here’s a hint: There will be dragons.
From the Welsh Green to the Antipodean Opaleye, these regional Oddities will be making their landfall debut in the game at Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival in Indianapolis this Aug. 31 – Sept. 1. Fans will want to take advantage of this unique opportunity, as after the event, the different dragon varieties will only appear in specific regions around the world.
Even better, the press release hints that those who can’t make it to Indianapolis will have the opportunity to join the Fan Festival remotely! Details about that have yet to be released, however.
Are you ready for the first Fan Festival?
UPDATE (July 24):
In a blog post discussing the recent San Diego Comic-Con panel on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the team behind the game shared some screenshots of what the new dragons will look like. The screenshots feature an Antipodean Opaleye and a Common Welsh Green, respectively.
