Death Eaters are prowling the streets of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida for Halloween Horror Nights, and we were brave enough to encounter them.
Death Eaters in Diagon Alley
Death Eaters first appeared at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Hogsmeade Village during The Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle. Last year, a Death Eater scare zone was added to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. This year, Voldemort’s followers now make their Diagon Alley Debut.
The Death Eaters appear by entering Carkitt Market in Diagon Alley.
Their show moment begins when the Death Eaters take the stage that’s used for entertainment offerings during the day, including Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
If you’re particularly unlucky (or lucky, depending on your point of view), you might catch the attention of a Death Eater ready to duel.
After the group raises their wands to the sky, they descend upon the crowd to invade the streets and cause mayhem among guests.
Special props with green lighting are up throughout Diagon Alley for the Death Eaters to interact with.
The Death Eaters are seeking new recruits and they might just choose you.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
The two Wizarding Worlds at Universal Orlando Resort are Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida. A third Wizarding World inspired by Place Cachée, as seen in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” is rumored for Epic Universe, with a recent construction update featuring a look at Place Cachée.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade also exists with slight variations at Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Studios Japan, and Universal Studios Beijing. All versions of Hogsmeade include Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and nearby family coaster Flight of the Hippogriff — which was originally a re-skin of The Lost Continent’s Flying Unicorn. The Ollivanders Experience is also available in all versions of Hogsmeade.
In Universal’s Islands of Adventure, guests can ride Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, a large roller-coaster that replaced Dragon Challenge, which was in turn a re-skin of Dueling Dragons.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, unique to Universal Studios Florida, is headlined by Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. It also features live performances of The Tales of Beedle the Bard and Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees. Guests can dine at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade or The Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley. Both serve traditional British dishes, such as fish and chips.
