I have to be honest. I have not read a single Harry Potter book, nor have I seen any of the movies. Before you get all hateful, I have nothing against Harry Potter. I just never got into it.
Anyway, I understand that people just LOVE him and his stories.
I did not receive this invitation, but wanted to let you know that Universal Studios Orlando will be opening up an additional section of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter called Diagon Alley.
The major attraction to this addition is the ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
The ride will feature some of your favorite characters, and some of your not-so-favorite characters.
During the journey, 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
The ride will use 360-degree themed sets, digital high-definition animation, 3-D projection systems and live special effects.
I am a huge fan of the rides at Universal, and I am sure this one will not disappoint. I will keep you posted on the reviews. I can guarantee that the lines will be very long for this ride when it is officially opened. If you don’t mind the expense and don’t want to wait in line, Universal offers an Express Pass. You can skip the lines once for each ride in the park you purchase it in. Since we live here, we have never purchased one because we can come back when ever we want.
No word yet on when this will be open to the public, but it should be opened very soon.
If you plan on visiting Orlando, this will be a Must Do item!
