More pics of Universal’s possible Harry Potter expansion

Nov 22, 2012   |   Written by Richard Bilbao

A Harry Potter expansion into Universal Studios Florida has never been confirmed, but the theme park fan world has all but assured it.

It gets harder each day to deny it when photos come out from sites like The Daily City and MiceChat showing more details of new construction at Universal’s unannounced expansion.

For some time, the rumors swirled around the sound stage being built at Universal that might be the home of a future Gringotts Wizarding Bank roller coaster. The area surrounding the new building is rumored to be a recreation of London from the Harry Potter films.

Gringotts, for those not familiar with the films, is a bank with a massive underground system of rails connecting various bank vaults. The film’s characters hop into small carts and go through a series of twists and turns on their way to the vault of Harry Potter’s family. If the rumors of a Gringotts are true, then guests can expect the ride to be based on that underground cart scene.

This Universal project is the last unknown piece of current construction at the Orlando theme parks. Despite no actual announcement, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter addition to Islands of Adventure has been the golden goose for Universal, so an expansion of that theme into Universal Studios makes financial sense.
