If you’re anything like us, you can’t resist magical nighttime entertainment at your favorite theme park. And for the second year in a row, Universal Studios Hollywood is bringing the holidays to life with The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle. There is no more perfect way to celebrate the holidays at Hogsmeade than by sipping on a cup of hot butterbeer from Three Broomsticks and watching Hogwarts Castle come to life.
Every night after sunset, theme park guests can watch as Hogwarts Castle lights up in a dazzling show of projection mapping technology set to music from the “Harry Potter” films. The entire show is magical from start to finish. With clear laser imagery, Hogwarts is wrapped in Christmas décor and stunning animations in celebration of the holiday season. Several scenes throughout the show are a nod to various elements that fans will remember from the “Harry Potter” films. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is already a highly immersive part of Universal Studios Hollywood. And if there is anything that will make you feel truly at home in Hogsmeade, it is The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle.
The holiday cheer and amazing technology make this show enjoyable for even non-“Harry Potter” fans. Even if you haven’t read the book series or seen the films, you too can feel immersed in the magic of Hogwarts with this nighttime holiday spectacular.
