NEW – Yorks Smallest Attraction complete with magic potions!
We’ve been along to the Potions’ Cauldron this evening to try out the BRAND NEW Potion Experience – and an experience it was…
Outside the Magical Shambles Shop
The smallest attraction in York has waved their magic wand again and created a spellbinding new experience on the Shambles! Would-be witches and wizards can practice their potion-making skills in a secret chamber at back of the busy apothecary full of tinctures, tonics and magically-infused items.
We went along and absolutely loved the small but perfectly formed attraction – we don’t want to give too much away about the experience but it has curious type of magic that can only be seen to be truly understood. With ghostly surprises, potion experiences and moving parts… my girls (6 & 8) absolutely loved it, I very much enjoyed the gin ‘poison’ addition too!
“You’ll find a host of new, highly-skilled potion makers who’ve now made their home in the Potions Cauldron and it is a great relief that they are willing to share their skills with our visitors! Inside visitors will have the chance to learn secrets from the likes of the great Helena Clogbottom, who is a marvel at restorative potions – and you’ll even have the chance to make and try your own concoctions. There is even rumour that older wizards, those over 18 years old, can even mix up their own slightly ‘poisonous’ potions!”
Commented Phil Pinder one of the lead Wizards of the Potions Cauldron.
The new potions experience can accommodate up to 12 trainee potion-makers on each 25 minute session. The experience is suitable for Wizards over 5 years of age, though it may not be suitable for children (and their parents) of a nervous disposition. The poisonous potions class, strictly for wizards 18 and over, lasts approx. 50 minutes and includes alcoholic additions.
The Potions Experience is available 7 days a week and costs £5.99 per Wizard for a standard session and £7.99 for poisonous potion experience (proof of age required). Pre-booking is recommended online at www.thepotionscauldron.com.
