Guests of Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort can now take part in a breathtaking and powerful illumination experience at the “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle,” an exciting new dimension of sorcery. Hogwarts castle at Universal Studios Hollywood will be illuminated nightly from April 13-28 and then return from May 25-27. The experience at Universal Orlando Resort will also debut this year, with dates to be announced at a later time.
This experience will bring more intense tones and drama than the parks’ previous “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” and “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle.” The “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will cast displays of light, music, and special effects and will include the darkest creatures and villains, including DementorsTM, Death Eaters, and even Lord Voldemort himself!
Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters that were brought to life in the Warner Bros. films, “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort is a masterful recreation of the compelling stories and characters that were inspired by J.K. Rowling and brought to life in the Warner Bros. films. Its snow-capped roofs, cobblestone streets, and the iconic focal point of Hogwarts castle all help to transport guests of all ages to the very places they watched on screen.
