All aboard!

This fall, you’re invited to embark on a magical journey as you take a ride on the Hogwarts Express.

The Waterloo Central Railway in St. Jacobs is hosting the Hogwarts Express and Magical Wizards Festival this September and it’s only a quick 1.5-hour drive from Toronto.

Harry Potter fans will get the chance to ride on a 94-year-old steam engine that will transform into the Hogwarts Express and as soon as they step on board, they’ll be whisked away to the sounds of the beloved film’s motion soundtrack.

Wizards and witches can then sit back and enjoy the two-hour interactive experience, where they’ll become a part of the story. But make sure to have your wands ready, as there will be an Onboard Professors on hand to help passengers perfect their magic skills and spells.

Back at the St. Jacobs Market Station, visitors can wander through the Enchanted Alley and enjoy a day jam-packed with special events, performances, potion workshops, and vendors.

So, grab your robes and wands and get ready to take the train to Hogwarts!

Just make sure to get your tickets before they disappear!
