You can feel like a Hogwarts student going back to school this September in St. Jacobs, Ontario. Take a journey on the Hogwarts Express and live like a wizard at a magical festival that includes riding a 95-year old steam engine train.

The train will be transformed into the Hogwarts Express for the total wizarding world experience.  In between visiting booths at the Magical Wizards Festival, you can take a ride on the Spellbound Prison Train which will last 2 hours. 

The train will feature performances by aerial and illusion artists, telling a story of two evil Wizards. You're helping the Ministry transport them back to a secret location while they await their fate. The story is meant to twist your opinion of what it means to be a good wizard!

Those attending the festival or the train experience are encouraged to dress up for the occasion. After all, muggles certainly wouldn't fit in on Diagon Alley, so make sure you look the part!

Some train rides are already sold out so you will want to act fast and not miss out on this amazing chance to ride the Hogwarts express! 

You can buy tickets for the Spellbound Prison Train here. The Magical Wizards Festival will be taking place on the weekend of September 8 and 9 in  St. Jacobs, Ontario.
