Feeling bummed about never receiving your Hogwarts letter?
Well, you may be able to live out your Harry Potter dreams after all.
Worthwich School’s annual Worthwich Wizarding Weekend, described as a “3 day magical retreat to Worthwich school of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” is taking place in Killeen Oct. 27-29.
And yes, it’s eerily similar to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The retreat is for adults 21 and up and lasts three days, with a curriculum of classes including potions, charms, defensive magic, divinations, astronomy, herbology, magical creatures and flying lessons. First-year students even get sorted into their houses, just like at Hogwarts (no word on if there’s a magical Sorting Hat, though).
The weekend kicks off with wand-making classes, pumpkin carving and magical shopping, followed by a sorting ceremony. There will be screenings each night, magical sporting games and classes throughout the weekend. Tickets, which are $400 per person for the entire weekend, include lodging, food and drinks.
Worthwich also offers regular wand making classes in Austin and across Texas, as well as Harry Potter trivia nights.View full experience
