Tuesday, Universal Studios Orlando opened the vault of secrets on their new ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. We saw concept art, heard about the story, read that Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are all reprising their roles and Peter even interviewed the art director.
But all that, kind of, pales in comparison to just watching a video that takes all everything and compresses it into an exciting two minute tease. Check out a behind the scenes Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts video below.
Thanks to Universal’s YouTube for the video.
Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts Video
The hype over this ride is pretty contagious as it’s the new focus of the whole Wizarding World of Harry Potter. What’s interesting about this video in particular, though, is it doesn’t quite let you know what the ride is. A roller coaster? A video? It’s reportedly a bit of both, creating a huge interactive experience.
Watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, it was very obvious the Escape from Gringotts scene was developed like it was a theme park ride, Now, only a few years alter, you’ll be able to ride it yourself. With brand new footage featuring characters from the movies too.
You can read much, much more about the ride at these two links. It opens later this summer as part of the Diagon Alley expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Are you going to try and head to Orlando, Florida and check this out?
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts will be the signature ride of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley. It will be a groundbreaking, multi-dimensional thrill ride that will place riders in the middle of an incredible adventure as they navigate their way through the Gringotts vaults.
