    Good, detailed article here:
    http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/07/10/escape-from-gringotts-is-the-new-banking-crisis.aspx

    The highly themed indoor roller coaster has been buggy to say the least in its first three days of official operation, just as it was in the week leading up to Tuesday's grand opening for the handful of bloggers and vacation-package buyers who attempted to experience the attraction.

    It's a winner by most accounts. You won't find too many coasters where strapping on 3-D glasses is part of the immersive experience.

    Reports from Universal Studios yesterday had people waiting 5 hours for the new Harry Potter-themed ride.

    Signs at the entrance of Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts said the wait would be 300 minutes.

    June 30, 2014: Universal Orlando allowed the first paying customers into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley on Monday afternoon.

    Hundreds of visitors who had purchased a Potter-oriented hotel package offered by the theme park were given early access to the Universal Studios attraction, which will officially open to the public July 8.

    Is the Escape from Gringotts coaster still malfunctioning, or is it working now?

    The new Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley has just one ride, a 3-D thriller called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts (which coincidentally wasn't working Thursday during a media preview). The first Harry Potter park had three rides. But Diagon Alley has seven shops, all so visually stimulating that you almost don't notice you're shopping.
