Niantic has released a few more details this week for the upcoming Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival happening in Indianapolis this month. Among the events taking place is that players will be dealing with Dragons for the first time ever while participating in a unique Special Task to be unveiled at the event. There will also be special magical artifacts and creatures, as well as the chance to relax with friends at themed lounges inside the park. We have more details below along with images the company has posted for you to enjoy.
Dragons Arrive in Indianapolis – Players will experience all-new, fire breathing Oddities… Dragons! Attendees will have the opportunity to encounter all of them in a single location for the first time ever, and after the event, these Dragons will fly off to their regions around the world.
The Threat Clock and Fan Festival Special Assignments – A series of Special Assignments will be available at the Fan Festival. Attendees will need to keep an eye on the Threat Clock throughout the day because when the hands reach a state of emergency, who knows what will happen next.
A Fully Interactive Experience – Magic will be all around at Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival, complete with a real-life Threat Clock, themed lounges and even creatures throughout the White River State Park. Players will be able to kick their feet up and plant themselves at the Greenhouse, a lounge area where participants can recharge their phones and test their knowledge of ingredients, potions and more for a chance to win prizes. Players may also come across Dragon and Acromantula Eggs scattered around the park. In addition, Landmark Flags will be brought to life around the park to help players navigate their way to find nearby Foundables, artefacts, creatures, and plenty more activations to interact with and take photos of.
Partner Activations with AT&T and Simon Properties – Players at the event will have access to exclusive offers and discounts from our U.S. launch partners AT&T and Simon. Visit the AT&T Experience for a special in-game item, the perfect picture with a giant inflatable Niffler, exclusive offers and other themed activities while playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. For even more excitement, players can stop by Simon's booth to pick up an exclusive voucher for a $10 Simon Gift Card, redeemable at any Simon location in the Indianapolis area, as well as the chance to enter for a $10,000 shopping spree sweepstakes.
