Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle to start September 14 at Universal Orlando Resort
Opening next week, the all-new light projection experience, “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle,” will make its debut at Universal Orlando Resort! On select nights September 14 through November 15, the Dark Arts will be unleashed in Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure. The show will utilize state-of-the-art projection mapping, special effects and lighting to bring a new dimension of magic to life onto Hogwarts castle. For the first time at Universal Orlando, guests will be able to encounter Death Eaters as part of their experience in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade.
Ominous green light and fog will permeate the village, signaling the arrival of the Death Eaters. They’ll eerily roam throughout Hogsmeade, lurking amongst guests – practicing the Dark Arts with complete disregard of wizarding laws.
“Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will feature the dark side of the wizarding world with appearances from Dementors, Aragog, Mountain Trolls, Thestrals and more. Guests will be asked to summon their inner strength and bravely face the Dark Arts and the powerful Dark wizard Lord Voldemort, and cast their own Patronuses.
