Immerse yourself in “Hogwarts Always,” a breathtaking new projection show that takes you on a voyage through the iconic moments of a year at the cherished school of witchcraft and wizardry, all set against the grand backdrop of Hogwarts Castle (home of Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey). Available on select nights, this show culminates in four dazzling finales, each celebrating a different Hogwarts house with a brilliant pyrotechnic display.

Prepare to be captivated by the voices of beloved characters like Professor Dumbledore, Hagrid, and the Sorting Hat, adding depth and nostalgia to this unforgettable experience.

Wait – aren’t there other light projection experiences, too?
