The New Wizarding World of Harry Potter Escape from Gringotts Ride Looks Like So Much Fun [VIDEO]

It's lev-i-O-sa!

Having finally visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last year, I can honestly say if you’re a Harry Potter fan, it’s a must-see. And it will be more so soon as the Escape from Gringotts expansion is set to open this summer. Look ahead for a shot of the actual ride car and a few more details.

It seems like this new ride will be in the same vein as the Hogwarts castle ride there currently. A very immersive experience. Variety writes, “The ride is one of the main attractions inside the new area, and will replicate the moment in J.K. Rowling’s books and movies when Harry, Ron and Hermione break into one of the most guarded places in the wizarding world, Gringotts bank, to retrieve a magical object that will help defeat Lord Voldemort.” Except you’ll get to see a whole different angle on the events.

I think I need to go back next year.
