The darker side of the Wizarding World will return once again to Universal Orlando Resort this fall with the nightly display of “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle.”
Starting Saturday, Sept. 18, the show will run nightly in The Wizarding World of harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The nighttime spectacular utilizes state-of-the-art technology — like projection mapping, special effects and lighting — to bring iconic moments and creatures from the Harry Potter films to life.
As darkness falls on Hogsmeade, the Dark Arts will be unleashed as ominous green light and fog floods the village. Death Eaters will appear and lurk amongst guests, and sinister creatures and villains will soon follow, cloaking Hogwarts castle in a display of light, music and special effects.
Guests will be asked to summon their inner strength and face the visage of Lord Voldemort as they find a moment of hope to cast the Patronus spell — one of the most famous, difficult and powerful charms in the Wizarding World — and save the day.
“Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will run nightly with showtimes from dusk until park close this fall, starting Sept. 18. To learn more, visit UniversalOrlando.com. You can check out our video of the full show below:
