The Dark Arts Have Invaded Hogwarts Castle! #WizardingWorldHollywood

So, the other day we visited one of our favorite places in the whole entire world, Universal Studios Hollywood. For us, this place never gets old, especially wandering through the streets of Hogsmeade. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is magical, to say the least, every single time. If you are someone who has dedicated time to reading the books or watching all of the films, it’s an incredible way to be transported to a world that you’ve envisioned for so long.


Get yourself some Butterbeer. Hot, Cold, Frozen or Ice Cream. The treats in Hogsmeade are special too.


If you haven’t been yet, what the heck are you waiting for? My favorite part is the light show at Hogwart’s Castle. On this visit we were able to watch the brand new Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle light show and it was AMAZING! We loved the original light show, Nighttime LIghts at Hogwarts Castle, and love love love the show during Christmas time as well. But it was really cool to see the Dark Arts take over Hogwarts for just a bit.


Experience the all-new “Dark Arts at Hogwarts™ Castle,” a powerful light projection experience. Illuminating a darker side of the Wizarding World, “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will cast a mesmerizing display of light, music and special effects, unleashing the darkest creatures and villains, including the powerful Dark wizard Lord Voldemort. The “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” opens to the public April 13 – 28 at Universal Studios Hollywood then returns from May 25 – 27.
