My Thoughts on Gringotts
Published: July 24, 2014 at 7:34 AM
OK now to the ride itself. Keep in mind I have only ridden it once so it is hard to take it all in. I was on the very front row of the ride which was pretty cool for my first ride. The 3D on the ride was awesome! Very hard to tell what is real and what is a screen for sure. On the second screen (the one where you fist seen Harry and others then get pushed down the track by trolls) I think our carts messed up. I think they are supposed to turn and face the screen but they didn't so everyone was trying to look over their shoulders at the screen and people on the right side of the cart could not see at all. I could be wrong as I only rode once but it seems like they should face the screen if they don't. Other than that it seems like everything else worked perfectly. The ride is pretty awesome I must say and I was not expecting the carts to turn and spin so that was a cool surprise. There is not much of a coaster aspect to this ride as others have said and I think they missed a great opportunity to have it at the last seen when the dragon is supposed to pull you out of the vaults. I think they could have done more of a mummy type launch and went into kind of a dark ride coaster sequence through the caves of Gringotts. That would have made it a perfect ride for me. I will say I was not nearly as blown away with how cool this ride is as I was when I rode FJ for the first time. The true feeling of flying that FJ gave me just blew me away the first time it rode it. Especially when FJ was new and the screens were really bright and crisp. But really any complaining about Gringotts ride is just nitpicking because it is a brilliant ride for sure.
