Calling all Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs and Slytherins…For the first time ever at Universal Orlando Resort, guest will be able to celebrate their Hogwarts house pride during an all-new, breathtaking experience – The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle – debuting Jan. 31 and running select nights throughout 2018.
As night falls in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, state-of-the-art projection mapping, coupled with special effects and lighting, will wrap Hogwarts castle in a display celebrating the four houses of Hogwarts – Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Each house will be brought to life on the majestic castle – all set to music based on the original scores from the Harry Potter films.
This will be the second projection mapping experience Universal Orlando has featured in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. Over the holiday season, Universal debuted “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle,” which brought Christmas moments inspired by the Harry Potter series to life. Both experiences were also featured at Universal Studios Hollywood.
“The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” will make its official debut at Universal Orlando Resort on Jan. 31 and run select nights throughout the year, but park guests can preview the new experience on Jan. 27 and Jan. 28.
