Next week, Universal Orlando Resort will reveal all-new details about Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts – the revolutionary new attraction found within The Wizarding World of Harry Potter –Diagon Alley.
The spectacularly themed environment, located within Universal Studios Florida, will double the size of the sweeping area already dedicated to Harry Potter’s adventures at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, expanding it across both Universal theme parks. It will create new experiences based on the signature areas of London, Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley.
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts will be the signature ride of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. It will be a groundbreaking, multi-dimensional thrill ride that will place riders in the middle of an incredible adventure as they navigate their way through the Gringotts vaults.
“Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts will be like no other attraction in the entire world,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. “From the moment we saw Gringotts bank in the films, we knew we wanted to bring it to life for our guests – and we’re doing this in a way the world has never seen before.”
Additional details will be revealed on May 13. For more information on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, visit www.UniversalOrlando.com/WizardingWorld.
An opening date has yet to be announced, however many rumors point to the middle of June as the most likely candidate.
