As construction on the massive Hogwarts Castle structure at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park nears completion, Universal Orlando has released a beautiful high res image of the castle.  Available to view right here, the image shows the castle's spiraling towers, turrets, and impressive detail of the exterior.  Universal notes:

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.

I am so insanely excited for this. Just looking at that picture… I can totally see myself walking around there when it opens. It’s so much better than I ever expected. I’m probably gonna cry the first time I go in there. And get goosebumps. Yeah, definitely goosebumps. :’)

Wow! That looks amazing. Is there a definite opening date yet? I think I want to wait a year though. I’m not overly fond of huge crowds. Plus, in a year, they’ll have all the bugs worked out of the rides and everything else.

:) imagine: the opening day, thousands of HP fans entered the park and started to cry))) why?
-the castle isn’t like in Jo’s canon? -no!
-the designers made something wrong? -no!
-so, why are you crying? -our dreams came true!
However, I’m sure that I will cry when I enter the park.
