Death Eaters Descend Upon Universal Studios Japan This Halloween

Potter fans in Japan have something extra-special to look forward to if they are planning on making a visit to the country’s Universal Studios park this fall – a spooky Halloween event featuring Dark wizards, a dessert feast, and more!

The event will run September 14 through November 6, giving visitors quite a while to experience some Halloween magic! The main draw of the event are two new pieces of entertainment that will run at the park, “Death Eater Attack” and “Magical Trick or Treat.”

“Death Eater Attack” sounds rather terrifying (just right for a Halloween adventure):
