Get out your house robes and scarves – a new projection mapping experience is coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle celebrates the four houses of Hogwarts by transforming the castle in a dazzling display of lights, special effects and music.
As night falls, you’ll see the spirit of each house wrap itself around the castle. Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff will all be represented, each house showcasing its pride in its own unique way.
And of course, it’s all set to incredible music based on the original scores from the Harry Potter films.
The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle will debut on Wednesday, January 31 and is scheduled to run Feb. 5, and Feb. 7 – Feb. 12 (additional dates will be announced at a later time). You can preview it during A Celebration of Harry Potter on Saturday, Jan. 27 and Sunday, Jan. 28.
And – if you’re A Celebration of Harry Potter package holder, you can be among the first to see it during an exclusive preview event on Friday, Jan. 26.
This is the second projection mapping experience we’ve featured in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Over the holiday season, The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle made its debut at Universal Orlando. This brought Christmas moments inspired by the Harry Potter films to life.
If you made it out here to see that magic, you won’t want to miss this. For me, seeing my house colors of green and silver (go Slytherin!) on Hogwarts took my breath away.
Do you live on the west coast? Then you may have also seen these two experiences at our sister park, Universal Studios Hollywood.
