The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle

We attended as a guest of the venue

Something magical is happening this summer at Universal Studios Hollywood. Once the sun has set and the sky turns to darkness, Hogwarts Castle will light up the night with an interactive light show.

The spectacular show is happening multiple times a night throughout the summer. During the performance, the four houses of Hogwarts will project on the castle: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Along with the lights and projects, the experience will immerse families with beautiful music. The music accompanying the performance is created by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams and is based on original scores from the film series.

Our family enjoyed our first day of summer vacation at Universal Studios Hollywood. We arrived at the theme park in the afternoon and were able to experience all of the rides by using a front of the line pass. I highly recommend getting the front of the line passes when visiting Universal Studios Hollywood so that your family can get the most of out of your day at the park.

After going on all the rides, and having lunch in Springdale, we went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to end our day. We sipped on butterbeer, used our magic wand to bring the world to life, and captured memories from our day with photos.

Once the sun had set, it was time to experience The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle for the first time. During the performance, my children were immersed into the magical world of Harry Potter. The story, the magic, and the mystery came to life before my children’s eyes with the twinkling lights and projections.

As we drove home from Universal Studios Hollywood, my children couldn’t stop talking about The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle. It was their favorite part of the day and is guaranteed to be a favorite for your little Harry Potter fans. This summer, bring your children to Universal Studios Hollywood to experience The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle. It is happening multiple times a night throughout the summer. The show is included with the price of admission.
