Geek Peek: Hogwarts Castle At Universal’s ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’
  |  @   |  

Back in 2007, Universal Studios Orlando announced plans to add a Harry Potter-themed land to their Islands of Adventure theme park.

Since then, we’ve only seen a bunch of concept art for Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Now, finally, is the first glimpse of an actual structure at the park: the top of the Hogwarts Castle!

Check out the image here at right (click for larger, full view); or for a super hi-res version, visit The Leaky Caudron site.

Also, below, check out the update on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is scheduled to open in Spring 2010.

The magical transformation continues. Although still very much a work in progress, the magnificence of Hogwarts castle is beginning to take shape above Hogsmeade as work continues on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hogwarts will be the home of a thrilling, new, state-of-the-art attraction – Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey – that uses ground-breaking technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced. Set to open in Spring 2010 only at Universal Orlando Resort, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will feature multiple themed attractions, shops and a restaurant.

  1. I have been hearing things about this for years and finally it is coming to real life!!! I cannot wait! I know I’m a super big nerd for even wanting to go, but it would be so awesome! I’ve been obsessed with Harry Potter for like 9 years now. This is going to be great. :)

  2. A lot of fans check out King’s Cross station to take photographs of platforms 9 and 10 that the station administration erected a sign that shows “Platform 9 ¾”
