The award-winning airport has partnered with Warner Brothers Studios Singapore to create a series of Harry Potter-themed locations across all of its terminals to celebrate the release of the latest Fantastic Beasts movie.

Fans will have the chance to dress up as a wizard and visit Hogsmeade Village, learn how to cast a spell or practice their Quidditch skills.

Spread across Changi's three terminals are the locations of Diagon Alley, the Whomping Willow, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and Newt Scamander's.

At Terminal Three, passengers arrive to a large-scale version of the village with snowy rooftops set against the backdrop of the grand Hogwarts castle seen in the distance.

And just to make the chilly experience more authentic, the airport has daily snow and lighting shows.

The 'Hogsmeade Airport' experience will run until early 2019.

The snow and lighting experience takes place weekdays at 6pm, 7pm and 9pm, and weekends at 1pm, 6pm, 7pm and 9pm.
