A powerful spell has been cast on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. The new Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle will debut later this year with dates to be announced at a later time.

This exciting all-new light projection experience will cast a mesmerizing display unleashing eerie creatures and villains upon the stone walls of the castle. Illuminating the darker side of the Wizarding World, this spectacle of music and lights will unleash some of the eeriest creatures and darkest wizards of the Harry Potter series, cast ominously against the stone walls of the castle.

As darkness falls on Hogwarts castle, Dementors, Death Eaters and other unspeakable creatures including Acromantula, Mountain Trolls, and Thestrals will cloak the castle in with their great presence. Eventually, the chilling visage of the Dark Lord, Voldemort, appears to close the castle’s takeover… until one of the wizarding world’s most famous defensive charms is cast.

    We are from England and will be coming to Universal at the beginning of May 2019. We have been many times before but this show sounds exciting. Will it be up and running by 4 May?

    With kind regards

    Will this replace the nighttime lights at Hogwarts?? Or will these two light shows alternate?

    We had a great time but unfortunately the park closes far too early. 7pm?? That was ridiculous. We came to spend the whole day and travelled from another country, just to be rushed and not get to see everything we wanted to.

  5. Hi Kelly, I want to sincerely apologize if our operating hours caused you any inconveniences. We always try our best to update our website and social media channels with the park hours so our Guests can plan accordingly. Please know I documented your concerns, so they can be sent to our Resorts and Operations management teams. Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. I sincerely hope you consider visiting us again!

    I visited Universal Orlando last year with my daughter and have terrible withdrawal symptoms. We came from South Africa and had the time of our lives and came back home with so many wonderful memories. Thank you to all the staff who made us feel so welcome and was always so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they have so much enthusiasm. We had two wonderful days in the park and it was definitely not enough, I am already saving up for another and longer visit! Thank you again and keep up the great work!!!!

  8. Hi Nicky!
    It warms my heart to read that we were able to offer you a memorable experience at our resort. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this comment. We hope to welcome you and your daughter again very soon!

    I went to Universal Studios Orlando, for the very first time, on a family vacation with my husband, 2 children, a d my dad. We had the best time, and I had one of the most memorable vacations! After 30+ years, I finally got the opportunity to go on a REAL family vacation with my dad and he had the most amazing time with us inside the park. He got on most of the rides with my children and I, and loved the different themes the park had to offer. My most memorable moment was watching the closing film and fireworks display. My dad and I have shared the love of going to the movie theater since I was a small child. I cherish the memories that I have of going to a “blockbuster” film with him on a Saturday afternoon. Well, I was able to relive that moment, not just with my dad, but with my husband and children too. The closing film real took us on a trip through time as we remembered all the movies we had watched over the years. I held my dad’s hand with tears of joy in my eyes because Universal made it possible for me to share that experience with him. As a kid, he always promised to take me to Disney World and Universal Studios, and we never got the opportunity to go. However, my experience at Universal was hands-down a dream-come-true! I can’t wait for us to go back and visit in October 2019. This time we’re celebrating my son’s birthday, and I’m taking my mom, siblings, and their families. We’re so excited! Thanks, Universal!

    My name is Luiz S. and I from Brazil and I had a wonderfull time at Universal Studios on July with my family. It was my second trip to Universal Studios. We love Harry Potter and the Wizarding World. I bought a lot of nice stuff at Universal Orlando that are now decorating my house, specially from Harry Potter and Fantastics Beasts. I have the pumpkin juice bottles, a glass of Fleur Fortecuor Ice Cream, a glass of butterbeer, a glass of Hog’s Head, 5 Chocolate frogs cards and Bertie Bots Jelly Belly from my second trip to universal and tons of replicas from Harry Potter in my room. Unfortunally the only thing that is missing to my Harry Potter room is the Skelegro bottle and an Original Butterbeer Bottle to drink (I have only the mug and a non universal butterscotch bottle). I found some wonderfull skelegro replicas and one animatronics robot at a corner of the wizarding world at universal but unfortunally the Skelegros are not for sale. Please make some replicas for sale, they are really nice looking and a lot of people wants to have one in your collection. Some of the products from Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes only sale on the parks and would be nice if they sale online too. I know that u can’t sale internationally some of the sweets so I bought a lot of them when I visited the parks but It would be cool If u could sale randomly just the Cards from the chocolate frogs. I know that some persons want another cards not just the 4 Houses Hogwarts Cards that u sale nationally including my cousin from USA.
    Thank you for making Universal Studios the best place on earth to visit. Please consider opening in the future a park in Brazil. Millions of brazilian people would visit and another South American peolpe too.
    My next trip will be definitely to another universal park in the world
