Blackpool’s brand new wizard golf attraction, The Hole in Wand, is giving guests a fresh taste with a scented immersion.

The Hole in Wand, also located in York, is an magically-themed immersive mini-golf experience.

Players can expect crawling through fireplaces, walking into giant portraits or drinking sparkling potions; welcome to the unique Hole in Wand.

The attraction has partnered with AromaPrime Themed Scents! to produce ‘a range of wacky, historically-accurate odours to achieve full immersion into the world of witches and wizards.’

Some of the smells on offer for guests ‘delights’ include ancient books, mystical forests, steam trains and the fabled eyes of newts and toes of frogs!

Liam R. Findlay, themed smell consultant at AromaPrime, explains more: “Even when you’re making a fantasy smell, careful research is needed. The newt notes and frog fumes are part of a wizard alley aroma, where you can imagine these strange ingredients being sold. We researched the pongs of pond life, but this concoction is mainly based on historical records of Victorian streets. The herbs and spices, the pipe smoke, the plants between the cobbles.

“This attention to detail goes towards convincing guests that the fiction is reality! That’s the special secret to making an experience memorable and magical.”

Stuart Jarman, managing director, says: “Post-covid guests are looking for something extra at experiences and attractions, and introducing smells allows us to provide a truly magical experience at our golf courses in Blackpool and York.”
