Sneak peek at Harry Potter theme park's Hogwarts Castle
Here's an updated look at Hogwarts Castle, part of a new theme park attraction called The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. As we noted earlier on Read Street, the new attraction -- Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey -- is scheduled to open this spring.
Rides will include the Dragon Challenge twin roller coaster and the family roller coaster Flight of the Hippogriff, according to Universal. And there will be plenty of Potter-themed merchandise, including chocolate frogs, "Bertie Bott's Every-Flavour Beans" and Butterbeer.
I like the look so far -- it mixes the ominous and the fanciful -- and hope the rest of The Wizarding World does the same.Photo credit: Kevin Kolczynski, Universal Orlando Resort
