Starting January 31, 2018 Universal Orlando is adding a new night-time story to its ever-popular Harry Potter experience that will run throughout the year on select dates. Named as “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle“, the new show will transform the entire Hogwarts castle into a dazzling delight, featuring world class projection mapping with special effects, lighting and original scores from the Harry Potter films. For the first time Universal guests will be able to watch the four houses of Hogwarts (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin) come to life in such amazing display of lights right on the exteriors of the massive castle.
The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle show is Universal’s second projection mapping initiative at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction. Earlier it’s “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle” show that had stunned holiday guests visiting the centerpiece attraction in the Hogsmeade area, in the Islands of Adventure section of the Resort. The new show will run on select nights beginning January 31 to February 5, 2018. And then again from February 7 to February 12, 2018, and continue through the year with more dates yet to be announced.
Moreover, guests visiting the attraction on select dates can enjoy the show anytime as it runs continuously throughout the evening. The Resort also offers a preview of the show prior to its official opening on January 31, 2018. During “A Celebration of Harry Potter” on January 27 and 28, 2018, guests at the Park will enjoy an exclusive glimpse of the new show. Also those with the special Harry Potter vacation package, it’s a great opportunity to catch the excitement before it actually opens for the regular park visitors. Package holders can be a part of the exclusive preview on January 26, 2018.
For Universal fans living on the West Coast the night-time Hogwarts show may not be a new one. The experience is already available at Universal Studios Hollywood since June 2017. It’s about a five minute long show, featuring a series of awe-inspiring images that puts you in the middle of a Potter adventure that you never want to miss. You will see each of the Hogwarts four houses come to life with their own unique stories.
Given the popularity of The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle show in the West Coast, the response is expected to go even further at the new Orlando version of the show. Truly, it’s a great opportunity to watch the massive castle transforms into a living centerpiece of Potter adventures. Never ever the four houses of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is celebrated in such amazing display of lights and sounds.
