Universal Studios Florida is releasing teasers as the opening of Diagon Alley gets closer. If you'd like to see a slideshow of photos, jump to this article. You'll see just how lifelike the goblins appear and even get a look at the ride vehicle, which is very reminiscent of Revenge of the Mummy.

For even more reveals, click the video accompanying this article. The video, which features some of the creative minds behind the ride and the Harry Potter stars who appear in it, will whet your appetite for trying it out for yourself. Although there's no firm opening date yet, Diagon Alley is slated to open this summer.

In addition to Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, which will bring riders face to face with Voldemort himself, Diagon Alley will also feature the Hogwarts Express. The train will run between Universal Studios Florida and Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure, so get a two-park ticket if you plan to ride it. It will be well worth your tine, as the train isn't just for transportation. It's a full-blown adventurous ride experience.
