Harry Potter New York Store Offers New Broomstick Flying Experience & Iconic Props

The Harry Potter New York Store has magic brewing this summer. Launching this week, the store is unveiling a magical green screen broomstick flying experience that promises to whisk fans straight into the wizarding world. Embark on an adventure and have a photo taken flying over enchanting scenes just like the cast while filming the movies, including the flying car and Hogwarts scene exclusive to Harry Potter New York.

Gryffindor Legend – Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom)

To help visitors get familiar with a broomstick, famous Gryffindor legend, Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom stopped by the store to give aspiring wizards and witches a preview lesson. The enchantment doesn’t stop there. For additional excitement (no Cheering Charm needed) fans can marvel at a collection of new-to-the-store props from the Harry Potter films, including the Sorcerer’s Stone, the Time-Turner Necklace, the Nimbus 2001 broomstick and wands from legendary witches and wizards like Bellatrix Lestrange, Sirius Black, Severus Snape and Draco Malfoy.

“With a new season upon us and Harry Potter New York’s third anniversary earlier this month, this is the perfect time to give fans new ways to explore and celebrate the wizarding world,” said Joel Gonzalez, Director, Harry Potter New York. “From a unique broomstick photo opportunity where visitors can emulate the cast in the movies to a new collection of authentic props and additional store offers, there is something special for everyone to enjoy.”
