If you ever see the disney castles - espcially the original in California - they may be steel a  reinforced structure, but it is an office building/hotel building styled as a castle. The outside is fiberglass/reinforced decorations to look like a castle. It is also very foreshortened for viewing from the bottom - the top "stories" are about a meter tall - again meant for decoration, not use. 

The plastic rollercoaster styled as a steam train is not a historic railway, and big thunder mountain nor space mountain are actual mountains. It is a castle in name only. 

The castle is an theme park attraction, like all the other things there. 

We should have a subkey value for amusement/attraction castles then if they are included.  

Im not sure about hearst castle. I drove by it, but i have never been. 

I went to a wedding in St augustine, Florida. I'm was in a "castle".  A guy built a 5 story castle out of cinderblocks near the beach (in the 1980's AFAIK) and rents it out. 


This is more of a castle than the one in the California Disneyland, though I'm not sure either of them should be tagged as a castle, unless there is some tag for a modern replica or something.
