Horrifyingly exciting news has been announced this morning for Potter fans! Universal Studios announced that for the first time ever, Death Eaters will be roaming Diagon Alley at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter during Halloween Horror Nights! If you aren’t familiar with or need the reminder (tsk, tsk!), Death Eaters are a group of Voldemort’s devoted followers. During the event, they will be roaming ominously, looking to find others willing to show loyalty to the Dark Lord’s cause.
Universal says “This interactive live entertainment experience puts guests face-to-face with these fanatic witches and wizards as they roam through London, lurk their way through the cobbled streets of Knockturn Alley, and challenge guests to join the Dark Lord.”
Death Eaters joined last year’s Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Hollywood and at Hogsmeade Village at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. I personally thought they were an amazing addition to the event and Horror Nights did an amazing job with the effects. Check out the reel on our Instagram from the event last year:
If you’re interested in Death Eater or Dark Arts merchandise, be sure to stop by Bourgin and Bourke’s shop in Knockturn Alley. Here, you can immerse yourself completely into the secretive and darker world inside Harry Potter. Death Eater merch, as well as masks, shirts, and more, are available for purchase.
Halloween Horror Nights is an after-hours, separately-ticket event that will take place at Universal Orlando on select nights from September 1 through November 4, 2023. You can check out more information about this year’s event, including what haunted houses and terrifying scare zones you can expect, here. Academy Travel also has a hauntingly good promotion going on the next few weeks where you can receive a $50 Universal gift card if you book a Universal vacation in the next two weeks (perfect if you still need to book your Halloween HorrorNights trip!). You can find more information on the promotion here.
We hope to see you in the fog!
