Universal's Islands of Adventure will introduce a new visual experience to Harry Potter World later this month.

The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle will use state-of-the-art projections and special effects to wrap the castle in various displays from the four houses (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin). The new show will be put to music based on the original scores from the Harry Potter movies.

The new experience will make its official debut Wednesday, Jan. 31, but previews will occur on Jan. 27 and 28 during "A Celebration of Harry Potter 2018," starting at dusk.

Guest also have the option to purchase an exclusive viewing package for Jan. 26 here, where they can be part of the first to see it.

This will be the second show projected onto the Hogwarts castle. Over the holiday season Universal debuted The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle.

The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle is scheduled to run Jan. 31-Feb. 5 and Feb. 7-12.
