    First Drop Theming Dead spots

    The theming is really what makes Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts such a good ride. In terms of a coaster, it’s a very unique but forceless ride; but in terms of a darkride, it is one of the best in the world! The short tilt track segment is the only one of its kind in America and starts this coaster off with a bang, although the rest of Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts feels hardly like a coaster and more-so like a darkride with rotating seats. I used to be a huge fan of Harry Potter around 5 years ago, so I’m glad to having recognized who and what was going on at the Gringotts bank during my ride. Overall, this is my 2nd favorite ride at Universal Orlando Resort (just behind Harry Potter and Forbidden Journey) and absolutely worth an hour’s wait!

    Theming

    Gringotts is a coaster I'd say I rate far more for the theming than for the coaster itself; if I was rating Gringotts as a dark ride, it would easily get 5 stars!

    Theming Harness Disappointing!

    Another instance of Universal pushing style over substance too far, I don't really class this as a rollercoaster. It isn't an unpleasant ride, but utterly forgettable. Considering the "similar", but superb Mummy is just round the corner from it I was expecting more from this. Our first ride on this was in the front row, which I found involved much neck-craning to watch the film on the run into the first drop. I am sure that it is only a matter of time that someone will suffer problems from the drop-and-turn into the dark while trying to watch the effects. A later repeat ride in the back row was better for being able to see the effects. The restraints are somewhat condensed, combined lap-and-ankle bar affairs that cause difficulties for access for decidedly average sized people too. My favourite aspect of the whole ride was walking into the lobby of the bank, in the queue line. For a major ride by an operator with basically unlimited budget, a real miss in my book.

    Not so much a coaster, but an excellent themed dark ride that appealed to me even though I know nothing about Harry Potter

    Theming Nice surprise! Too short Intensity

    Really enjoyed it the first time..but some rides are better than others depending which car you're in (more force on the "spins").. Would be better if the drop was bigger and the "launch" was more powerful.. But theming all throughout is amazing !
