Will YOU survive the clutches of Lord Voldemort and his Leigion of Darkness?
The Dark Dimension: A Wizarding World Horror Experience is a passion project that transport guests to the time of dark turmoil during Lord Voldemort's return and rise to power as seen in the main Wizarding World literature. The downside of this story is that instead of reading it, the onlookers will be experiencing this chaos firsthand. It will force guests to experience iconic locations like Malfoy Manor, The Forbidden Forest, and the Chamber of Secrets in a gruesome and twisted light. Around every corner their is dark forces that follow your every move, and even with the help of witches and wizards who battle him, everything that is held dear is under his dominion. You must escape his grasp of death, or you will be his next casualty.
As a personal project of mine, it is not affiliated or endorsed by JK Rowling or the Wizarding World brand.

Concept and CAD Front Elevation of Entrance Facade- Art done through Procreate; CAD Front elevation done through AutoCAD
When coming up with the idea for the entrance façade to visually convey the experience to each guest, Malfoy Manor become the only choice. In a state of disrepair, the manor's foreboding sense of misery will follow the guests as they enter. It is one of the first locations that all major players in Voldemort’s army interact and leads to some great horror scenes. Creative liberties were taken with the façade, drawing inspiration from the narrative and movies.

Some examples of both costume and puppet concepts that would be featured throughout this experience. I heavily rely on puppets for some of the scares as physical presences for guests to feel in the moment.
