Earlier in September guests at Universal Orlando Resort began experiencing an exciting new display of magic in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade with Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle, an ominous new spectacle of music, lights, and special effects.

On select nights until November 15, the Hogwarts castle will illuminate with images of the darker side of the wizarding world. You’ll be asked to summon your inner strength and bravely face the all-consuming Dark Arts and even the visage of the powerful Dark wizard, Lord Voldemort.

Dementors, Death Eaters and other unspeakable creatures – such as Aragog, Mountain Trolls, Thestrals and more – will cloak the castle with sinister images from the darker side of magic, until the Patronus spell – one of the most famous, difficult and powerful defense of the Dark Arts charms in the Wizarding World – is cast.

So, whether you’re a Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Slytherin, or Ravenclaw, we highly recommend you experience Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle at Universal Orlando Resort!
