Universal Studios Orlando- Possible Diagon Alley Animation

Please be patient.. the video is a little bit hinky and takes time to load.

 Possible News Today about the much anticipated "Gringotts" ride going in at Universal Studios Orlando, Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Diagon Alley.

 This video showed up today on Screamscape. Posted on Youtube my Dynamic Attractions, this may or may not be the Gringotts ride. It's simply listed as "Mine Ride Coaster" but seems to share the same design ride cars from the Gringotts attraction. While this may not be the exactly design of the ride, it should give you some nice clues as to what may possibly be included!

 You'll spot a lot of elements which are already in use at other attractions. Two drop sequences as well as a "tilt and switch" track element. Although no one can confirm is this really is Gringotts, it does seem possible since the ride has recently received it's coaster trains.

More information when we find it!


  1. Whoa, this is actually pretty mindblowing! I thought I had a pretty creative mind but I never would have imagined something like that for this attraction. That tilt back track switch looks AWESOME.

    1. Hey Mike,

      Like I said, No one is really sure if this is the true ride design or not. However, I'm with you! I had a few crazy ideas but this is like nothing I'd imagined either, I figured more along the lines of Mummy only longer. This kind of blows everything out of the water. I know most of these elements exist in other rides but I don't think they've ever been put together!

      The only downside is.. it's probably going to be a technical nightmare the first year or so of operations. Seems like the more complex rides have that issue.
