Wizarding Academy NZ

Harry Potter (or rather, Not Harry Potter) is a popular larp genre. And its also a popular genre for larp-adjacent activities as well. In this case, it looks to be a wizard-school themed train ride:

This 1 – 1.5 hour interactive family experience will see you board the Wizarding Express and take part in a fabulous array of magical lessons, activities, and more.

Study well in spell casting and potions class onboard and see if you receive your invitation at the end of the journey!

Your carriage is your ‘house’, there you’ll be joined by your house captain and professors for fun and magic.

Its unclear how much plot or character there is, beyond the general idea of the school’s train being sent out to find new students in mid-term break.

It’s Wellington-based, and tickets are on Eventfinda.

It made the Herald:

They’re now doing a Christchurch run, and another Wellington run in June.
