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.

Let me clarify thing: I’ve seen some parts of the walls they are using for the castle and Hogwarts castle won’t be the same scale as the movie, (it would be very dificult to build), but it will be scaled in a way that it seems big, so we’re not going to go technicaly inside the castle. 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.

I can’t decide whether to go next year, or hold off and wait ’till I head over there for Leaky Con in 2011.

Guess That Book

They were looking straight into the eyes of a monstrous dog, a dog that filled the whole space between ceiling and floor. It had three heads. Three pairs of rolling, mad eyes; three noses, twitching and quivering in their direction; three drooling mouths
