As the summer’s gaming wave arrives with the summer heat wave, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden invites locals and visitors to bring their wands and head to the garden to play Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
Free to play, Wizards Unite is a fun, family-friendly smartphone adventure game by the same creators as Pokémon Go. On Thursday, July 11 from 6 to 9 p.m., the garden hosts Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Family Gaming in the Garden Night for those who want to get their game on after hours.
Dave Forehand, Dallas Arboretum vice president of gardens, said, “Get your wands up, grab your Nimbus 2000, and zip over to the garden to test your skills at our four fortresses, eight greenhouses, and more than three dozen inns. What better realm to play in than ours!”
On July 11 from 6 to 9 p.m., the community is invited to purchase tickets and attend the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Family Gaming in the Garden Night. Attendees are encouraged to dress up in their favorite family-friendly Harry Potter costumes (no masks, please) and get their game on throughout the main garden. The Arboretum staff offers tutorials, and there are themed activities including a members-only lounge with costumed character photo opportunities.
Attendees can bring a picnic or purchase themed food and alcoholic beverages. Tickets, which include parking, are $10 non-members, $5 for members and $9 for groups of 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased here.
