Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts – Behind the Scenes

10275539_10152135911272852_283523096013524292_oWell, the big announcement from Universal Studios Orlando was released today and unfortunately it was not the opening date for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley.

It was however the announcement of the official name of the big attraction Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts along with some behind the scenes footage.

Guests will enter Gringotts™ bank beneath the massive fire-breathing dragon at the far end of Diagon Alley™. Inside Gringotts™ you’ll walk through the bank’s grand marble lobby and see goblins hard at work. Then, get ready to take a journey through cavernous passageways that lead deep underground as you climb aboard Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™.

This new, multi-dimensional 3D thrill ride puts you right in the middle of the action as you face the bank’s stringent security measures while navigating the perilous underground vaults. You’ll encounter Harry, Ron, and Hermione along the way, but you’ll have to evade the wrath of malicious villains Voldemort™ and Bellatrix as well as trolls and other creatures who stand between you and a safe return to Diagon Alley™.

Enjoy the behind the scenes footage and stay tuned for Universal Studios Orlando updates and hopefully, soon, the opening date for Diagon Alley.
