|The roller coaster's Gringotts bank facade|
|Designer / calculations||Universal Creative|

|Riders per train||24|
|Propulsion||Drive Tire Launch|
The building's facade is supposed to look like Gringotts from the Harry Potter books and films. On top of the building is a dragon that breathes fire every 20 minutes. Like Dragon Challenge and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, the ride has test seats at the front of the queue to allow potential riders to check if they can fit safely.
Riders are given 3D goggles to wear before they board the trains. The ride has a dual station, however both sides are dispatched at the same time, thus one train will move in front of the other. Then, the train crawls all the way to the first scene and stops. An alarm is triggered, and Bellatrix Lestrange appears thinking the "Muggle-borns" have accessed her vault. Suddenly, she casts a spell on the cars, in which the track tilts. Then, the cars are released, in which they go through the drop and some sharp turns.
