Been a while since there's been any updates on here, so here's one from the other day:

The castle looks amazing! I'm so excited to see it finished :D I've heard rumours that their proposed opening date is March, but I remain slightly skeptical that it will all be finished by then.

You wont be able to walk round inside hogwarts as it just a huge fake structure ontop of the Forbidden Journey ride (ride building is covered with fake rock).

However the queue line for Forbidden journey will take you though rooms from hogwarts.

The Wizarding World is looking fantastic at the moment, with rumours even suggesting an opening date as soon as March. I cannot wait until I go in August.

The Superbowl advert can be found here: Link

Also, the new website has been launched revealing more information: Link

And some news about the main attraction (Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey):

I'm so excited for this development! It's going to be amazing. I remember being there this time last year and all that was there was a huge croncrete building (what Hogwarts is built on). Looks so different now and completely amazing.

Everything can be classed as theatre...even you are classed as theatre.

Harry potter theme park is much adventures there are thrilling rides and games, imaginative shops and restaurants, and enchanting shows and events. Most importantly, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is that it have plenty of rides, designed for a range of ages.

Interestingly I was just listening to an advert and they said very clearly that the new area will feature two roller coasters; Dragon Challenge and Flight of the Hippogriff.
From the pictures above we know that the new ride uses Robo-arms to represent school desks but it seems like the ride will be more like "The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman" than the Robo-coaster everyone is predicting.

i thought it had always been known it would be a robo arms on a track based system similar to the spiderman track system. I think people using the robo coaster name (which is what they called the standalone robo arms) has made some people think it would run on a roller coaster track but for last few years the rumour has been it would run on a spiderman style track and not a roller coaster.
