Will Harry Potter fever ever end? Honestly, probably not, and we’re happy about it. The latest Harry Potter experience that’s been added to our bucket list is the epic pop-up that has taken over Singapore’s Changi Airport. If you needed another reason to book an overseas adventure, this is it.
To celebrate the holiday season, Changi’s three airport terminals got a very Wizarding World makeover complete with fake snow and magical lights. The collaboration with Warner Bros. is the first of its kind (but hopefully not the last) and the level of detail is enough to impress any fan and make a stopover well worth your time.
In Terminal 3 you’ll find Hogsmeade Village (and Honeydukes) in winter, along with the Hogwarts Express, which is ready to take you straight to Hogwarts. In the same terminal there’s a rendition of Diagon Alley with favourite shops like Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions, Quality Quidditch Supplies and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.
Depending on how long your layover is, you can dress up in Hogwart’s school robes and pose for a GIF in front of one magic mirror or try the Wand Challenge and show off your spell knowledge. True athletes might like the Quaffle Toss, which lets you throw the Quaffle through a series of moving hoops (sorry, no broom flying is allowed indoors).

5 points to Gryffindor! Finally saw @elleyamada after like… 6 years of “knowing” each other on Instagram? ? If you love or even just semi-like Harry Potter you should definitely check out the #ChangiWizardingWorld at @changiairport! ⚡️ Most of the areas are open to public & I got to bag home this cute Hedwig plushie ? #thisisnotanad
Terminal 1 has its own magical set up and is themed from the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Newt Scamander’s Menagerie has a giant interactive Niffler game and there are plenty of other magical creatures just waiting to be discovered.

Terminal 2 doesn’t miss out on the wizard-themed takeover either, but beware, because it’s now home to the Whomping Willow. This is one flight you’ll want to get off looking fabulous given all the pictures you’ll be taking.
Dressed up as a Hogwarts Student and went to the #ChangiWizardingWorld ! Many people requested a picture with my friend and I. So fun to be able to make people smile by taking photos with them. I will be there again ! Look out for us if you want a photo with us! @ChangiAirport pic.twitter.com/ZTnCzCkSy3

Don’t worry that Christmas is over; you can still catch the festive Harry Potter magic at Changi until mid-February 2019.
