Construction is underway in Florida for the upcoming Harry Potter theme park attraction at Universal Studios in Orlando. While early photos have been floating around for a few days now, blogger Jim Hill has some clear pictures of early work being done as they clear the area for the Hogwarts castle and more, which you can see via this link.He writes that work is being done to create "a level working surface which will actually be to support the weight of this several-hundred-ton structure (Which is quite a concern in sinkhole-prone Central Florida), then construction can then begin in earnest on Hogwarts Castle. With first the footings & foundation work getting underway in January, which will then be followed by vertical construction on this enormous show building in the late Winter / early Spring of next year As reported previously, "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" is to be part of Universal Studios theme park attraction in Orlando, Florida. You can read more about the park here, and see some great concept art here in our galleries. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is slated to be open in late 2009 or early 2010.
