A Gringotts coaster will be coming to the Universal Studios Florida version of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, to be built on the former site of the Jaws ride. Here's our in-depth look at the leaked attraction plans.

To be built in a 75,000-square-foot show building, the Gringotts ride will feature 12-person ride vehicles that turn as they drop and slide along a track, while riders watch scenes and battles projected on screens built into the ride scenery (much like on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man).

Expect an opening in June 2014.
