Rumor Alert today regarding the ride that will be contained within the giant Hogwarts Castle currently under construction at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction in Orlando, Florida. As a follow to the report from last week on the inclusion of Magiquest as well as news on the Castle ride, Theme Park Insider is now reporting that “the ride vehicles will be four-person seats on Kuka robot arms, mounted
from an overhead track. And there will be about 10 scenes in the ride.” You can also vote on some scenes the author has personally selected on what he might like to see during the course of the castle ride.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is currently being built at Universal Orlando, and is set to open in Spring of 2010. Be sure to check out our extensive collection of construction photos and concept art here in our Image galleries.

If there are castle locations, they won't be inside the exterior model because they just don't fit. Probably all interior locations will be constructed beneath the castle.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Interesting .... sounds like fun. *I cannot wait!* :DAvatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Interesting .... sounds like fun. *I cannot wait!* :DAvatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Opps, sorry for double post! :DAvatar ImageGTHunter says: coolAvatar ImageClaireM says: I can't decide whether to go next year, or hold off and wait 'till I head over there for Leaky Con in 2011.Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: So coolAvatar ImageHagrid 713 says: coolAvatar ImageMattOM93 says: i want to go to the chamber of secrets scene, and the grand staircase would be insaneAvatar Imagechingmcc says: How COOL is that?!?!Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: COOL!!Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: that's crazy.

The entire assembly moves along the track and the four seats which hold guests are at the end of an arm which will be able to move the seats nearly every direction. (Think the arms currently used in automobile manufacturing assembly lines.) Not too much theming to see yet when I was there but hopefully I'll get another glimpse sometime :)Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: This is cool. I wonder what scenes they will choose.Avatar Imagehumbert0 says: That's so cool xD
