The iconic Hogwarts castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is in for a spellbinding transformation, Universal Orlando has announced.

A projection light show featuring “magical” special effects debuted Wednesday night, Universal said. The new show – dubbed “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” – consumes the castle at Islands of Adventure with vivid animations and twinkling lights. The new show is similar to the park’s special effects Christmas experience last year.

Many of the new light projections pay homage to the four houses at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. According to a news release, the show debuted Wednesday night and runs for select nights throughout the year.
