The newest nighttime show to transform The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle,” is making its debut at Universal’s Islands of Adventure this month.
Starting Sept. 14 and running on select nights until Nov. 15, a new display of music, lights and special effects will illuminate Hogwarts Castle with the darker side of the wizarding world. Guests will face all sorts of dark creatures, Death Eaters, dementors, and even encounter Lord Voldemort. These dark images will cloak the castle until you cast the Patronus charm – one of the most powerful defense charms that can be used against the Dark Arts.
Along with the new show, guests will find that an ominous green light and fog will permeate Hogsmeade Village, and Death Eaters will roam the area amongst guests – practicing the Dark Arts with no regard for wizarding laws.
