Big news coming from Universal Orlando Resort yesterday as they released new details about the HIGHLY anticipated revolutionary attraction in the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley. It’s every Harry Potter fans dream to experience this Wizarding World and now we can all get our chance. Diagon Alley is an extension to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and will open sometime this summer. Don’t worry as soon as I know the date you will too!
One of my favorite scenes from all of the Harry Potter films is when Harry, Ron and Hermione break into Gringotts bank which is one of the most guarded places in the Wizarding World. They break into the bank to retrieve a magical object that will help them defeat Lord Voldemort. Now with the opening of Diagon Alley and it’s new attraction, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts you will get to experience this action packed scene in real life.
During an action-packed, fully-immersive journey on Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, you will:
- Marvel at the 60-foot, fire-breathing Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon atop Gringotts Wizarding Bank
- Tour Gringotts bank and pass through the marble hall where you’ll see goblins hard at work
- Race through a labyrinth of underground Gringotts vaults
- Encounter the villainous Death Eater, Bellatrix Lestrange, as she attempts to send you to your doom
- Come face to face with He Who Must Not Be Named
- Experience even more mind-blowing moments
I posted this a few days ago, but for those who didn’t get a chance to see it, here is a sneak peak at the new ride. It’s really incredible and really blew my mind. I can’t wait to see it in person.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley will bring even more of Harry Potter’s adventures to life. The new area will double the size of the sweeping land already found at Universal Orlando, expanding the spectacularly themed environment across both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Inside the land, guests will enjoy themed shops, dining experiences and the groundbreaking thrill ride – Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
