Hogsmeade village will also shine brightly as the quaint town celebrates with festive décor uniquely themed to each of the individual storefronts, along with holiday-themed food and beverages including hot Butterbeer.
As night falls on Hogsmeade village, the familiar sounds of Harry Potter music will resonate throughout the land, and multiple times an evening, colorful projection mapping will illuminate the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with impressive dimensional animations that melodically dance across Hogwarts castle in tandem to a musical arrangement from of the Harry Potter movies.
Guests can also board the “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” thrill ride, now enhanced with 4K-HD, and ride film projecting at an astounding rate of 120 frames-per-second for an even more immersive glimpse into Harry Potter’s world, as well as journey on the “Flight of the Hippogriff,” Universal Studios Hollywood’s first outdoor family coaster.
