Harry Potter Fans ‘Furious’ After $50 Magic Wand Turned Out To Be Chopsticks (Photo Credit: Twitter)
Angry Harry Potter fans are demanding a refund of $50 dollars which they paid for a ‘supposed’ Hogwarts-like-experience. The event had promised wizard-themed drinks, food, games, live music and even debauchery following which more than 600 people shelled out $50 from their pockets for the ‘magical’ experience.
Warring their way through freezing temperatures, their ‘Magic this way’ experience at the Rialto theatre in Montreal, Canada came crushing down when discovered that at the “Wand Making Station” was a table scattered with chopsticks and glitter. Yikes!
The advertised “Wizard Sweater Cookies, Cauldron Cakes and Butterscotch Beer Popcorn” turned out to be a selection of supermarket snacks and finger food.
A “magical photo opportunity” was in reality a recreation of Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station, involving a painted, brick wall and a free-wheeling trolley.
As for party-lovers the promised “Magical Blood Shots and Hair of the Multi-Headed Dog”, turned out to be ‘’muggle” cocktails like rum and coke, and gin and tonic.
‘‘It felt like an insult to every Harry Potter fan,” one guest complained. “Half the people just left”.
As for the organisers they have issued a sorry-note to the Harry Potter fans, “We are a new company trying to bring magical joy to multiple cities around the country, I am sorry that the event did not live up to your anticipations’’ they wrote.
