Harry Potter: Magic at Play Extends Its Run in Chicago
The interactive experience Harry Potter: Magic at Play, which debuted last November in Chicago, Illinois, was set to run through April. Fans of the Harry Potter films will be pleased to hear that its worldwide debut in Chicago is now being extended until September 4.
The first of its kind, Magic at Play gives visitors the chance to interact with the Wizarding World through more than 30,000 square feet of games, exploration, and sensory activations.
The experience includes entering the Dursleys’ living room at number four, Privet Drive, stepping onto a boat to cross the lake to Hogwarts, attending some of the iconic magical classes such as Charms, Potions, and Defense Against the Dark Arts, having a go at playing at each Quidditch position, entering the Forbidden Forest, and much more.

An on-site shop is also available to both ticket holders and the public, where you can purchase “bespoke and licensed items alongside themed food and beverage, including the beloved [b]butterbeer.”
MuggleNet volunteer Carolyn Jenkins visited Harry Potter: Magic at Play with her kids last year, giving us a detailed account of their fantastic visit and describing it as “by far the most fun my kids and I have had since going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort for the first time.”
Not only is Magic at Play available as a regular attraction, but if you have a special occasion coming up and you’re looking for a magical twist to amaze your guests, the venue can also be rented out for parties, events, and celebrations.
