Universal Studios Orlando has been the home to my all time favourite ride, Harry Potter in the Forbidden Journey. Located in the Islands of Adventure, this fantastic ride is set in Hogwart’s Castle, inside of Hogsmeade. Universal may have just topped this incredible ride with their new ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
The multi-dimensional, multi-sensory attraction, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, will revolutionize theme park entertainment. This next generation thrill ride seamlessly integrates a compilation of the most innovative technology ever created, 360-degree themed sets, 4K digital high-definition animation, state-of-the-art 3-D Infitec projection systems and live special effects with beloved characters and breathtaking moments from the Harry Potter books and films.
“Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts will change the way you think about theme park attractions,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. “We’ve created an entirely new type of ride that propels guests into the story like never before, and guests will remember it long after their visit to Diagon Alley.”
I feel like I’m walking into Gringotts myself when I look at this image. It reminds of Hermione disguised as Bellatrix while she, Harry and Ron tried to access a vault.
They look so lifelike! I am anxious to see this in person and discover just how incredible they are for myself.
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.
