I took 2,15yr olds who are avid Harry Potter fans. Thought it would be more Harry Potter style. Reality felt like they had gone to a friends party with a Harry Potter theme. Childish party games, cake, pizza and a couple of people dressed up...continued

Getting there was a problem because according to Google Maps, the venue is in Santa Monica, when it is in fact close to La Brea. We were half an hour late and in no mood for participating in the show. However, within 10 minutes, the characters got...continued

The party was great. My kids love the characters. Hermaine, and Harry were great, very friendly and welcoming. Draco was amazing. You feel like you were living one day inside the movie and that Harry Potter exist.
Very exciting.

College students costumed in Hogwart attire played the roles of Harry and Hermione, mingling with guests for photo opportunities. Others entertained with improv songs centered on Harry Potter's world characters and themes. People of all ages...continued

I wish it was a little bit more advertised that this was geared more for children. When we stepped in, we were asked if we wanted to take pictures in a photo booth. We could get glasses and scarves! I loved that we were assigned characters and won...continued

This was a fantastic and fun event for all ages, especially for those who are hooked on Harry! The Harry Potter host was terrific and was an excellent Harry "double", as was Malfoy. All the characters circulated the room and made everyone feel...continued

We really enjoyed this event which I attended with my niece and nephew. The decor is very well done and a lot of care has gone into the details. The staff are more like cast members, many use a British accent; enthusiatic, friendly, helpful and...continued
