Venture Into The Forbidden Forest at Warner Bros. Studios | Discover The Stunning Set, Magical Creatures & More

The first time we hear of the Forbidden Forest is at the 'Arrival Feast' on Harry's first day at Hogwarts; Professor Dumbledore warns the First Years that the dark forest is "off-limits." But when has that ever stopped our hero 'who lived'?

If it weren't for Harry's rebellion, we'd have never encountered the pivotal scenes that changed their lives (and ours) for good. Fortunately, the Forbidden Forest isn’t off-limits for Warner Bros Harry Potter™ Studio Tour guests. You can explore the secrets within the forest, discover majestic beasts, touch Rubeus Hagrid’s original costumes, and meet Aragog the Acromantula.

Why is the Forbidden Forest at Warner Bros. Harry Potter™ Studio a must-visit?

  • Interactive experience: The Forbidden Forest is a walkthrough experience that brings the iconic forest from the Harry Potter films to life. The forest is also full of special effects that help create an immersive experience, including mist and fog that make the forest feel mysterious, lighting effects that create a sense of danger and suspense, and the sounds of animals, rustling leaves, and other forest noises.
  • Step into the movies: The Forbidden Forest is a recreation of the iconic forest from the Harry Potter series. It's not an actual forest, but rather a carefully designed and constructed set filled with trees, foliage, and other elements that bring the magical woodland to life.
  • Meet magical creatures: As you walk through the forest, you'll encounter a variety of magical creatures, including Aragog the Acromantula (giant spiders), Buckbeak the Hippogriff (half-horse, half-eagle), Thestrals (skeletal winged horses), and Centaurs (half-man, half-horse). These creatures are all animatronic figures, but they're very realistic and move in a way that will make you feel like you're in the forest with them.
