Harry Potter fans will be excited to know that Universal Orlando has unveiled details of Diagon Alley in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Set to open this summer, a new ride – ‘Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts’ promises to be a “multidimensional, multisensory” experience in which visitors will ride through Gringotts bank vaults in vehicles that drop, spin and turn. The ride will also be more suitable for younger riders than the current award-winning Forbidden Journey.
Diagon Alley will also have lots of new shops, including Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, selling novelty items and magical jokes, Ollivander’s wand shop, and visitors can dress up for Hogwarts school at Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions.
