Construction on Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida continues at a rapid pace, since the new area is slated to open later this summer. If you're getting impatient, click the video accompanying this article for a quick fix in the form of a sneak peak at the goblins inside the new Gringotts ride.

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is the centerpiece attraction of the new area (although the Hogwarts Express will likely give it a run for its money...pun intended). Just as Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey broke new ground, this ride is expected to offer state-of-the-art thrills and a chance to feel like you're really taking a journey through Harry's world.

Gringotts will be impressive both inside and out, as it will be crowned by a fire-breathing dragon. The exact opening date for Diagon Alley hasn't been announced yet, but keep an eye out as more news should be coming soon.
