Just when you thought people could get enough of Harry Potter… It turns out they really couldn’t. Appropriately found in York, the city which inspired aspects of JK Rowling’s novel, a magical Harry Potter mini golf course The Hole In Wand, has been designed themed around the massive franchise – and it looks amazing.
Located in the old Patisserie Valerie venue in the city centre, the lads behind The Potions Cauldron – Phil Pinder and Ben Fry – have dreamed up the concept, launching a crowdfunding campaign back in 2020 to help summon the idea to life.
The York Harry Potter mini golf course is made up of nine magical holes to challenge you at the Coppergate shopping centre, which they’ve creatively named The Hole In Wand. The course features wizard-themed holes throughout the course, with sets taking inspiration from the movies and including a few easter eggs along the way.
Coppergate venue has the perfect thing to keep you cool during the heatwave Spellbound Frappe and Cola Wizae Style to keep you cool!
What Can You Expect From The Hole In Wand?
There are 9 magical holes to take on at Coppergate shopping centre. On the course, you will find bubbling cauldrons, magic portals and a giant picture frame where you become part of the painting. It’s a great place for Harry Potter fans. The holes are pretty small but they’re certainly not lacking fun or character.
Finally opening in spring 2021, it boasts nine wand-erful holes, with magical refreshments on offer including the Wand Dog, Uni-Pop Corn, Grobble-Nachos, alcoholic potions and Butterbeer.
The nine curious holes, with magical portals, bubbling cauldrons and plenty of photo ops along the way – all before finding out if you have the magical powers of a Serpent, Basilisk, Unicorn or Wizard.
If that wasn’t all, at the Harry Potter mini golf course venue there are some seriously sweet Cauldron Cakes and butter beer to enjoy when all the fun is over. Let’s just hope none of them turns into frogs…
