“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,” Universal said in a media release. “Also, while visiting Diagon Alley, guests can shop for a variety of Death Eater-themed merchandise to embrace their sinister side.”

This is the first time the Death Eaters have been in Diagon Alley. Guests have seen the dark characters roaming the streets of the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure.

Universal Orlando said the Death Eaters will be making appearances through Nov. 4.
