(Confirmed)

The headline attraction of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley is a major roller coaster themed around Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

Harry's first encounter with the bank is an innocent descent in its mine-cart-style conveyance in the first film; by the last, the out-of-control race through the vaults was accompanied by loops, waterfalls, and captive dragons - perfect material for a theme park ride.

Gringotts Wizarding Bank sits at the end of Diagon Alley, and is the icon of the new land. A huge, fire-breathing dragon sits on top of the building, while inside a staggeringly-detailed queue keeps guests entertained during what can often be a very long wait to experience the attraction.

We won't give away too much about the ride's plotline, but suffice it to say it features a host of well-known characters from the books and movies, some stunning set-pieces and a breathtaking finale.
