Harry Potter Fans in San Antonio Can Now Attend Hogwarts — Well, Almost

Posted By on Wed, Oct 18, 2017 at 2:10 PM

If you're still heartbroken that you never got your acceptance letter to Hogwarts, well, you're not alone.

Harry Potter fans in Texas (or really anywhere, come on over y'all) can forget the sad reality for a weekend and hit up an adults-only wizarding school inspired by the J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Booked (heh) as The Worthwich Wizarding Weekend, the three-day pop-up school will welcome Potterheads aged 21+ on Friday, October 27 through Sunday, October 29 for a ~magical retreat~.

The ~magical retreat~ will be held at Parrie Haynes Ranch in Killeen, a two-and-a-half hour drive from San Antonio, and will let you get sorted into your proper house (for evening competition between the houses) and even take a wand-making class (move over, Ollivander). And you get to use your wand throughout the weekend, too.

That's right, this school has legit classes, including potions, charms, defensive magic (EXPECTOOO PATRONUM), divinations, astronomy (for returning students), magical creatures and broom flying lessons.

But there's a catch. Or rather, a major price tag. You'll have to dish out $400 to live out this Harry Potter-inspired dream.

Seems totally worth it to us.
