Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, a “groundbreaking new multi-dimensional thrill ride” based on the golden trio’s Deathly Hallows escape from Gringotts wizarding bank (ain’t no safer place!)

—The Hogwarts Express, an almost-replica of the train that will allow guests to board at King’s Cross Station and Hogsmeade, passing through London (and between parks)

—Knockturn Alley, another expansion that will feature Borgin and Burkes, which offers guests the chance to buy Death Eater masks, skulls, and other Dark items for their obnoxious Slytherin friends

—An Ollivanders shop that’s not in Hogsmeade
