Harry Potter Wizards Unite Fan Festival Brings the Wizarding World to Indianapolis
Players will need to enter a lottery for a chance to purchase tickets.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has only been available in the U.S. for a little over a week, but the game’s developer, Niantic, has wasted no time announcing the first real world event for the free-to-play mobile game.
The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival will take place in White River State Park in Indianapolis, Indiana from August 31 - September 1, 2019. Similar to Niantic’s recent Pokemon Go Fest events, wizards and witches who are interested in attending the Fan Festival will need to sign up for a drawing for a chance to purchase tickets at a later date.
While specific details about the event are still under wraps, a press release shared a general overview of the event’s festivities:
“The first-ever real-world event for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will welcome players to Indianapolis to investigate the chaotic magical activity that is leaking into the Muggle world and work together to solve the mystery of this Calamity. Players will explore Indianapolis and the beautiful White River State Park to discover mysterious artifacts, cast spells, and encounter fantastic beasts alongside their friends and other players.”
Even though tickets aren’t on sale just yet, players can learn more about special hotel rates by visiting the game’s website.
