Universal Orlando Resort has unveiled details of its new Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts ride.

The ride will be the main feature of the theme park’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley when it opens this summer, although an opening date has yet to be revealed.

Using a 360-degree set, high-definition animation, 3D projection and live special effects the ride will take visitors through the halls of the Gringotts bank and its vaults before coming face to face with villains Bellatrix Lastrange and Voldemort.

“Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts will change the way you think about theme park attractions,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. “We’ve created an entirely new type of ride that propels guests into the story like never before, and guests will remember it long after their visit to Diagon Alley.”
