Potter: EXCITING Diagon Alley Gringotts Ride and Shops Updates

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park have contacted us to let us know some more info on the ride updates on the Escape From Gringotts ride that will be part of the new Diagon Alley section of the park, due to open (the exact date will be revealed this month) next month.

Enter Gringotts™ bank at the far end of Diagon Alley™ and walk through the grand marble lobby where you'll see goblins hard at work. Then, get ready to take a journey through the cavernous passageways that lead deep underground as you climb aboard this mind-blowing new 3D ride.
But beware—the vaults can be perilous, and you may even come face‑to‑face with dangerous creatures and menacing villains.

We revealed previously a video preview and here's another:

It has also been revealed that although the ride is to feature the trio (Harry, Ron and Hermione) Daniel Radcliffe is not involved:
“I know nothing about that,” he says. “They may very well be using existing footage that we’d already filmed for the movies, but I have had no calls or involvement in that. A while ago they asked me to do more stuff for the theme park, and that was my moment to try and draw a line because that theme park is going to keep expanding, and keep going to more countries, and there’s going to come a point where I’m going to be 30 years old, and if I was still doing that then, that would be a huge problem.”

He adds, “I wish them all the luck in the world and I genuinely think that what they did with the theme park in Florida is fantastic, and they really did a great job.” 

A short video on the shopfronts of the street has also become available:

There are now some screencaps and other images in our gallery.
