Harry Potter Theme Park Previews Gringotts-Themed Ride

The upcoming "Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts" ride, which opens this summer, recreates scenes movie fans will recognize

Grab your Firebolt brooms and get ready to fly to Florida — the Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios in Orlando unveiled new photos of its upcoming expansion opening this summer.

The new Diagon Alley location will visit a number of places from the books and the movies adaptations, including Gringotts Wizarding Bank, which is the subject of a new 3-D ride. “Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts” recreates a scene from the final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie.

The expansion will be connected to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure by a Hogwarts Express-themed train.
