Video: Hogwarts Revealed as Scaffolding Comes Down at Wizarding World Hollywood

If you’re someone who can’t wait for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open at Universal Studios Hollywood, you’ll be glad to hear that construction on Hogwarts Castle appears to be nearing completion! A new video from Behind the Thrills shows that scaffolding around the castle has almost entirely come down this week. Check it out:

Hogwarts Castle will of course be home to the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride, which will be presented in 3D.

Back in July, we shared photos that appeared to show Hogsmeade village complete and free of scaffolding as well.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood is scheduled to open in spring 2016. Will you be there?

I have been a fan of Harry since 2000, a fan of MuggleNet since 2005, and a MuggleNet team member since 2013. I believe in the power of stories to bring people together, and nothing does that quite like Harry Potter. I’m an annoyingly proud Canadian and live in Toronto.
