‘The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle’ will be making its debut to the public on Wednesday Jan 31st and running select nights throughout 2018. However, last night there was a preview of the new nighttime spectacular as part of the “A Celebration of Harry Potter 2018” event.
The show takes place at 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, wrap Hogwarts castle in a dazzling display celebrating the four houses of Hogwarts – Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin.
It’s all set to incredible 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 incredible Christmas moments inspired by the Harry Potter series to life. Both experiences were also featured at Universal Studios Hollywood.
At the moment “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” is scheduled to run Jan. 31 – Feb. 5, and Feb. 7 – Feb. 12. Additional dates will be announced at a later time.
