The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Horizont Alley

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley opened officially on July 8, 2014 and features a variety of carefully recreated shops, restaurants and entertainment situated throughout Diagon Alley and the adjacent areas of Horizont Alley, Carkitt Market and Knockturn Alley.  After walking down Diagon Alley, you arrive at the cross-street Horizont Alley which is marked by Gringotts Wizarding bank and several shops and restaurants.  The featured attraction is Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts – a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional journey that combines an indoor roller-coaster with a 3D dark ride themed around an incredible adventure  where riders navigate their way through the perils of the Gringotts vaults and encounter many familiar friends and foes.
