UPDATED: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood Announces New Summer Experiences!
If you’re planning a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood this summer, the theme park has some magical new experiences planned for you too! Beginning June 24, Universal Studios Hollywood is introducing new magic wand experiences, apparel options, menu options, and the return of its “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” light display!
Universal Studios Hollywood issued a press release today, detailing what park guests will be able to expect! There will be an expansion of the Three Broomsticks’ lunch menu with more traditional British fare, while a “high-end replica” of Severus Snape’s robes and a replica of Hermione Granger’s Yule Ball dress (in both adult and children’s sizes) will be available for purchase at Gladrags Wizardwear. The addition of two new interactive wand magic locations, as well as the addition of Madam Malkin’s Talking Mirror, will also enhance the experience.
At night, guests will be able to take in “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle,” which is returning for a limited time only, starting Sunday, June 24. The light display is accompanied by “a special musical arrangement” composed by John Williams.
You can find the full press release from Universal Studios Hollywood below!
UPDATE (June 16):
“The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” returns to Universal Studios Hollywood June 24–August 19 and for three extra shows from September 1 to 3. It starts at dusk each evening and runs until the park closes, so you have plenty of time to watch the spectacle!
The return of the “Nighttime Lights” show isn’t the only exciting reason to head to Universal Studios Hollywood this summer. Visitors will be able to try out two new interactive wand movements in Hogsmeade Village starting this July – the Fire-Making Spell (Incendio) and the Unlocking Charm (Alohomora).
