Universal Reveals Escape From Gringotts Ride And More Wizarding World Expansion Details [Video]


Universal Orlando is in the middle of a big expansion to the popular Wizarding World. Though we’ve known the basics for a while, they recently revealed new details, concept art, and the name of the ride that takes place in Gringotts Bank – Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. Though Universal isn’t ready to say much beyond the name for the ride, they provided plenty of other information to make wizards, witches, and muggles excited.

Besides Diagon Alley and Hogwarts Express, the expansion will include a London waterfront with facades for places from the books such as Grimmauld Place. The giant Knight’s Bus will be parked there and the interior will contain an interactive exhibit. King’s Cross Station will be almost an exact replica of the actual station, and Diagon Alley will be populated with stores like Weasley’s Wizard Wheases and Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour.

No opening date just yet, but I’m counting down the minutes!

See more concept art and a video after the break.
