The new Harry Potter area opening at Universal Orlando Resort this summer, called Diagon Alley, will offer fans a Gringotts bank thrill ride, along with more than a half-dozen eateries and shops selling wands and other souvenirs.

The new ride, Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, described as Diagon Alley’s marquee attraction, will be an indoor ride through Gringotts’ bank vaults. A park spokesman said other kinds of experiences to be offered in Diagon Alley will be announced later.

Universal executives described the rich level of detail at Diagon Alley as “theatrical reality,” with shops selling souvenirs drawn from the Harry Potter books, such as supplies for Quidditch, a game played on broomsticks.

In addition to a previously announced eatery called the Leaky Cauldron, Diagon Alley will include Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour, where fans can nosh on Harry Potter’s favorite ice cream.

Among other shops in Diagon Alley:

Borgin and Burke’s, a shop devoted to dark arts that sells masks, skulls and other sinister items.

Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions, where park visitors can buy Hogwarts school uniform ties, scarves and jumpers, wizard’s robes and character costumes.

Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment, where folks can buy telescopes, binoculars, armillary spheres, compasses, magnifying glasses and hourglasses.

Quality Quidditch Supplies, for Quidditch sweaters, brooms, Golden Snitches, Bludgers, Bludger bats and Quaffles — all items used to play the game featured in the book and movie.

Scribbulus, which will sell feather quills, ink and inkwells, bookmarks, journals, parchment paper, seals, stationery sets and postcards.

Attention Harry Potter fans! J. K. Rowling has announced that she is writing the screenplay for the first in a series of new films! The new wizarding world films will be based off of the book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander.

“It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author ofFantastic Beasts, realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood. As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros. Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway…”
