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.

I voted for the Grand Staircase, but I was torn between: Restricted Section of the Library, Mirror of Erised, Wizard Chess, Chamber of Secrets, and Dumbledore’s Office.
I am very glad to see that most of the choices were featured in SS- best movie! :)

I had the chance to see a ride vehicle a while ago—although the quoted article says they will be mounted from an overhead track, as far as I can tell they are actually mounted below. 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 :)
