Post Wizarding World park Gringotts ride cart first look, new Diagon Alley aerial shots

The first look at the Gringotts ride carts, on which fans will ride for the bank's big attraction at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, was revealed Friday by Attractions magazine, and can be viewed here. Note that this is just one of the cars - there are rumoured to be three attached per ride.

Additionally, recent aerial views of Diagon Alley, which will open next spring at Universal Orlando Resort, were featured on WESH's website, giving an idea of how far along construction is at the park.

• Image 1: The front view of Diagon Alley, with the London facade buildings facing the embankment and water. The whitish-coloured building on the right is the Gringotts ride base. The long building in the back left is Platform 9 3/4 for the running Hogwarts Express.

• Image 2: The back view of Diagon Alley, where the large light building on the bottom right is the Gringotts ride base. From the Gringotts base, on the right, is a triangular-shaped building (just beyond the round object on the Gringotts building), which will be the famous entry into Gringotts bank. The large rectangular building near that is presumed to be The Leaky Cauldron.

• Images 3 & 4: The smaller buildings with the triangle-shaped tops will be some of the shops throughout Diagon Alley, and even Knockturn Alley (near Platform 9 3/4 in image 3), including Ollivanders, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, and Borgin & Burkes (all presumed to be part of the park but not confirmed yet).

• Image 5: The exterior of Number 12, Grimmauld Place on the London facade.

• Image 6: The exterior and entry base of King's Cross Station on the London facade.
