Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is a 4D Ride attraction located inside Gringotts Bank in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Diagon Alley at Universal Studios, Florida. As the title suggests, the attraction is based around the Break-In of Gringotts Wizarding Bank (1998), though taking an alternate perspective with riders traveling into the vaults with Bill Weasley.

The attraction, much like The Forbidden Journey features multiple "pre-show" areas. Guests first enter the lobby of Gringotts where animatronic Goblins are hard at work. A goblin at the head of this circle speaks up to guests asking if they are here to open a Gringotts Bank Account and directs them to have their security photo taken. While passing this photo-spot, the trio can be seen through one of the windows preparing to go down into the vaults. The guests paths then goes through Bill Weasley's office. A goblin called Blordak, who is to conduct us on our tour of the vaults, is looking for the keys, which Bill helps him find. Bill decides to join us in guiding our tour and visitors are guided to elevators going down to the cart levels and the ride's boarding area.

Upon disembarking, the carts are stopped with security having already been breached by Harry and his friends. Bellatrix Lestrange appears, believing the "Muggle-born" riders to be the ones that have trespassed in her vault. Sending a spell towards the carts, Bill's cart and the guest vehicles drop down and briefly meet with Harry, Ron and Hermione before the Thief's Downfall causes their carts to drop and the other carts are attacked by armored security trolls, who toss the karts around causing them to spin. Eventually the guests escape causing some of the security trolls to drop into the abyss. The vehicles find themselves next to the Ukranian Ironbelly's platform just as Harry and his friends have mounted it to escape. Bill appears to protect us from the dragon's fire and uses Wingardium Leviosa to lift the vehicles away. However, Bellatrix catches our trail again and breaks open a wall. Nagini emerges from the cloud of smoke and Bellatrix is now joined by Voldemort. He demands to know where Harry Potter has went and attacks the vehicle to interrogate us, sending us to a lava-filled portion of the cave. The trio comes to the rescue and brings a chain down to help tow the guests up the chasm, leaving us with Bill close to where we started and then flying off with the Horcrux. Bill asks if we're all okay and quips about Gringotts being the safest place on Earth.
