After introducing its projection-mapped light show on the Hogwarts Castle in December, Universal Orlando Resort announced it's bringing it back for 2018.
Whereas the previous show was holiday-themed, the Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle will showcase different elements from the four houses – Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin – all set to music based on the original scores from the Harry Potter films. It will kick off Jan. 31, running through Feb. 5, and again Feb. 7 to 15, at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure. Additional dates have yet to be announced.
Park guests can preview the new experience on Jan. 27 and Jan. 28 during “A Celebration of Harry Potter 2018,” where it will run continuously each evening starting at dusk.
