UPDATE: Night of a Thousand Wizards schedule & ticket sales
Universal has released about 200 additional tickets to Night of a Thousand Wizards, so we have about 400 left for sale. We are closing ticket sales on June 23, unless we sell out before then, and no tickets to NoaTW will be sold on-site, so purchase your tickets now!
Learn more about Night of a Thousand Wizards here.

Speaking of Sell-Outs...
We have only a few Full registrations still available, as well about 100 Merlin's Circle registrations and under 20 add-on tickets to the Welcome and Leaving Feasts, so if you want to attend the Infinitus Feasts, we highly recommend registering (or upgrading) as soon as possible. No Full or Merlin's Circle registrations or Feast tickets will be sold on-site.

May 1st, 2010

Tickets are now on sale for Night of a Thousand Wizards, the special event just for Infinitus registrants in Universal Orlando Islands of Adventure & the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, on Friday, July 16, 2010 after the park has closed to other guests. The price is $100 through this weekend, and goes up to $110 on Monday, and includes admission to Night of a Thousand Wizards, plus admission to all of Islands of Adventure after 2:00 p.m. on July 16, as well as desserts and beverages during NoaTW – and more exciting things that we can’t officially announce yet, but our wands are shooting sparks in anticipation of our announcing the amazing details!

If you want to spend more time in Universal Orlando’s fantastic theme parks, you can purchase your NoaTW ticket bundled with one-, two-, four- and seven-day tickets. Pricing information is here - please email registration@infinitus2010.org  with any questions.

We can sell only 1,500 tickets to NoaTW – we don’t want the Wizarding World getting overcrowded – and we expect to sell out well before Infinitus begins, so get your tickets now by modifying your registration  or adding it to a new registration. Anyone with a full, single-day, two-day, Merlin’s Circle or Child registration can purchase one ticket to NoaTW.

Team Infinitus is excited to announce that Christian Coulson (Tom Riddle, Chamber of Secrets) will be joining us at Infinitus!

Christian will be at Infinitus throughout the weekend, including a Q&A session open to all Infinitus registrants on Saturday, July 17 (time TBA) and will join with Chris Rankin in hosting a dessert event on Saturday from 7:30 until 8:45 PM. Tickets can be purchased by anyone holding a full registration, a Merlin's Circle registration or a Saturday registration, and only 100 tickets are available! Enjoy a chocolate fountain and mounds of other sweets, plus coffee, tea and lemonade, while participating in a Q&A with, and enjoying table visits from, Chris and Christian. Tickets are $65 through April 1, and go up to $75 through June 30. If tickets are available at the door, they will cost $100 each.

In addition, Christian will be participating in many more events at Infinitus, including autograph and photograph sessions on Saturday; there will be no charge for autographs if you bring your own copy of Chamber of Secrets, and your pass to have your photo taken with Christian photographs will be available for purchase on-line for $30 through May 1, and for $40 at the door. More details will be announced in the near future.

Be sure to register for Infinitus now! Remember, the $180 rate for a full Infinitus registration is only available at http://www.infinitus2010.org until April 1st, so don’t delay! If you already have an Infinitus registration, you can add the Dessert With Chris & Christian by modifying your registration. Email info@infninitus2010.org if you have any questions or visit the forums.


NOTE: Children under the age of 14 can only attend the Dessert with Chris & Christian with a parent, legal guardian or registered chaperone; everyone over the age of three must have a Dessert ticket.
