Hey Thrill Seekers,
It feels like everyday at the moment I’m posting something about a new video, and today is no exception. However I’m sure you’ll forgive me when I tell you its related to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley and the new ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts…
Yesterday, the Today show released a video promoting a competition they’re running in conjunction with Universal Orlando to win a trip to the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley.
The video shows Al Roker (Presenter) explaining the competition in the interior of Gringotts Bank, as he walks around you can see in the background animatronic Goblin bankers doing what animatronic Goblins do… bank I guess!? Its quite surprising that Universal have allowed the interior to be filmed and shown without a big fan fair as this is the first time we’ve seen the interior of the Gringotts Bank.
Again, and I find myself repeating it, the attention to detail is amazing. The difference in realism between the Goblins depicted in the video and say the Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park are glaring.
I can’t wait to see the finished product and rumour has it that perhaps we’ll be told a confirmed opening date as early as next week!
UPDATED: Universal Release their own Goblin Video;
Remember, to ride the Hogwarts Express and enter the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley you’ll require a multi park ticket, you can purchase a Universal 2 park bonus ticket from Orlando Attraction Tickets which will offer you unlimited access to Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios for 14 days.
