Amtrak Partners with “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” to Bring the Magic to Life
Amtrak recently announced that they are the official rail transportation partner for the Broadway show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, now playing at the Lyric Theatre in New York City. As part of the collaboration with the show and Audience Rewards, the official rewards program for Broadway, Amtrak Guest Rewards members, Broadway enthusiasts, and Wizarding World fans can earn and redeem Amtrak Guest Rewards points on tickets to the show. It’s free for Amtrak Guest Rewards members to register with Audience Rewards.
In addition, four specially wrapped Amtrak locomotives will power Northeast Regional service operating on the Northeast Corridor (NEC) between Washington, D.C., and Boston through June 25. The train wrap features the show’s iconic logo along with Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, and the next generation wizards: Albus Potter, Scorpius Malfoy, and Rose Granger-Weasley. The swirling clock will give you visions of time travel as you ride through the landscapes of the NEC. While this train won’t be stopping at Platform 9 ¾, you’ll be sure to have a magical journey on the NEC.
In the Broadway show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Harry’s headstrong son Albus befriends the son of his fiercest rival, Draco Malfoy, which sparks a new journey for them all — with the power to change the past and future forever. The audience will experience a thrilling race through time, spectacular spells, and an epic battle, all brought to life with theater magic. The entire theater will be transformed with hidden surprises around every corner.
