Visited Saturday 1st November, we have visited before and it was excellent so thought we would visit again during the Halloween weekend. We were promised that the great hall would be decked out as in the film Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone when actually the tables were only decorated for about 2 metres we expected the hall to look completed different and it didnt. The slime, snot and unicorn blood demonstration was a 6ft table with a member of staff showing us 2 bowls with slime and snot a mirror covered in vegetable glycerine. The death eaters in Diagon alley were the most disappointing as this consisted of one small female in costume pointing her wand at you, no atmosphere at all. Very very disapointing as we enjoyed our first visit enourmously and thought the promises made for Halloween were enough for us to journey once again from Yorkshire.
Halloween: Ghostly Goings-On at the Harry Potter Studio Tour

There are special – and mostly thoroughly repulsive – additions to the Making of Harry Potter Tour at Warner Bros Studio for Halloween. The Great Hall will be decked as it was for the Halloween feast in 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' - and you'll be able to admire the costumes of Nearly Headless Nick, Moaning Myrtle and the ghost of Slytherin House: the Bloody Baron.
Will there be slimy troll snot? Yup. Three-headed dog drool? Bucket-loads. Unicorn blood? Vials of the stuff. Even better, you'll see how all this monstrous gunk was created for the films.
You'll also get a wand combat lesson, which is just as well, since those who venture down Diagon Alley will find themselves under attack from Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters.

Sounds like great, icky fun. Even us older kids (I'm 62) want to get in on imaginative play. The Harry Potter series is like az giant fairy tale to me, & allowing the public into the story makes it come alive in a safe & exciting way.
I went there last year, and it was magical! I just can't imagine how much more amazing it will be in halloween! Thinking I have to go again and kill some death-eaters!! :D
