Hogwarts castle to transform during new nighttime show at Universal Orlando Resort

The show, which will run on select nights throughout 2018, will display state-of-the-art projection mapping, along with special effects and lighting as it envelops Hogwarts Castle.

Calling all Gryffindors, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs and Slytherins. Guests will watch as the spirit and iconic elements of each house are brought to life on the majestic castle - all set to music based on the original scores from the "Harry Potter " films.

Universal's Islands of Adventure will introduce a new visual experience to Harry Potter World later this month. The theme park presented "The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle" as part of its holiday celebrations.

As we predicted earlier, the new nighttime show coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando is the Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle show that debuted last summer at Universal Studios Hollywood.

If you loved the "The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle" at Universal's Islands of Adventure previous year, good news - Universal is keeping the lights on a while longer. But there will a preview tied to the A Celebration of Harry Potter event on January 26 and to other park-goers on January 27 and 28. The show will run continuously each evening during the event, starting at dusk. Both experiences were also featured at Universal Studios Hollywood. You can purchase an event package here.
