Universal Studios Hollywood

Young witches and wizards beware. The Dark Arts are taking over Hogwarts Castle at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort.

As darkness falls on Hogwarts castle in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, be on the lookout for the dark mark to appear in the night sky. Deatheaters, Dementors, and other sinister beings such as Mountain Trolls, Acromantula, and Thestrals will appear as they cloak the stone walls of the castle with their chaos. Even the Dark Lord himself, Lord Voldemort, will join the evil fray calling upon his followers to swarm the castle.

Potterheads will be able to experience first hand the fire-engulfed Inferi and the soul-draining breath of the Dementors as they witness the takeover of Hogwarts castle. This unforgettable nighttime experience will be accompanied by a haunting musical score by John Williams and is sure to cast a spell on the end of your day.

Guests of Universal Studios Hollywood can preview this exciting new light projection show starting April 13 during the select nights below:

April 13-28
May 25-27

Dates for Universal Orlando Resort will be announced for later this year.
