The show features magical projections using Hogwarts Castle as a canvas, accompanied by music, lighting, and more. In the above photo, you can see the house crest and colors illuminated on the Castle to represent Hufflepuff.

A dark and ominous green light is cast across Hogwarts to represent the Slytherin house. You can also see the house crest with its symbol — the serpent — in the center of it.

The Castle is then lit up with red and displays the house color and crest for Gryffindor — the house of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger.

Universal describes the popular nighttime show: “Come experience a dazzling spectacle of music and lights. On select nights, watch in awe from Hogsmeade™ village as projections are cast against the majestic backdrop of the castle. Embrace your Hogwarts™ pride as the four houses are celebrated in stunning light and sound. It’s a beautiful way to end your day at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.”
