(Relaxnews) – New details have emerged on the latest Harry Potter attraction in Florida designed to recreate one of the most action-packed scenes of the movie series: a dramatic escape from the vaults of the Gringotts Wizarding Banks.

Described as a multi-dimensional, multi-sensory thrill ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is the latest addition to Universal Orlando Resort’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley theme park.

The attraction puts riders in the footsteps and free falls of Harry, Ron and Hermione as they break into one of the most guarded places in the wizarding world, The Gringotts banks, as the heroes try to retrieve a magical object to defeat Lord Voldemort.

Designed in collaboration with the production team of the film franchise, the ride recreates scenes from the silver screen in meticulous detail, from the marble hall where the goblins crunch their numbers and the labyrinth of subterranean vaults.

Riders will also relive dramatic moments of the film as they encounter Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange, a 60-foot, fire-breathing Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon, and come face to face with the ultimate villain himself, Lord Voldemort.

The attraction uses next-generation technology including 360-themed sets and some of the most advanced versions of high-definition animation and projection systems.

Details on the opening date have yet to be released.
