The Death Eaters kind of act as a scare zone in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, wandering among guests to intimidate them.

In the “Harry Potter” series, Death Eaters are the followers of Lord Voldemort. They wear black robes and silver masks.

The Death Eaters also appeared for a limited time earlier this summer.

Though the Death Eaters are in similar outfits, they each have a unique mask and costume.

At night, there are green lights throughout Hogsmeade, accentuating the Death Eaters when they pose and perform.

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.
