No need to go to Platform 9 and 3/4 — the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now in Singapore.

Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN) — already considered one of the top airports in the world, thanks to its advanced technology and luxurious amenities — can now add its Harry Potter Winter Wonderland to the list of reasons why it is one of frequent flyers’ favorite hubs.

As of Friday, Changi has transformed three of its terminals into holiday-themed installations from the ultra-popular book and movie series. The installations are dubbed “A Wizarding World Holiday at Changi,” and the airport received assistance from Warner Bros. to bring to life holiday versions of familiar scenes depicted in the Harry Potter movies.

Harry Potter fans passing through SIN this winter can see Hogsmeade Village and Diagon Alley in Terminal 3, the Whomping Willow in Terminal 2 and Newt’s Menagerie from the movie “Fantastic Beasts” spin-off in Terminal 1, which is a nod to the recently debuted second franchise, “The Crimes of Grindelwald.”

According to USA Today, travelers can also take pictures in front of the flying Ford Anglia from “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” pretend to catch the game-winning snitch while on a broom in front of a Quidditch shop, or pose with portraits of famous witches and wizards, including the so-called Fat Lady, in a Hogwarts hallway.

The attractions will be open 10am to 10pm through mid-February. Just remember to pack your dress robes — otherwise you’ll look like a muggle.
