New Harry Potter ride/area in Universal Studios

Hi guys
Has anyone heard anything recently about what is happening to the Gringotts ride and the new area in Universal Studios?? Seems to have gone very quiet!

Nothing has been announced from Universal...we're all in the dark right now.

I have found that ScreamScape keeps pretty good track of progress.

All I can say is right now there is one massive building taking shape which is probably going to be the Gringott's attracton

We don't know anything about the supposed Transformers ride either and it will be opening much earlier than the new Jaws area.

Not this year...Transformers is supposed to be sometime next summer but the HP expansion won't be finished until 2014.

I've heard that as well, it makes sense, being after HHN.

Hoping to see Harry Potter world for the time very soon! A Gringotts themed coaster sounds awesome!

I really hope they make an announcement soon! I would love both the Transformers ride and HP going to the Jaws section! I was there a couple of weeks ago and saw a big building going up as well in the old Jaws section and told DH I have a feeling it's a Gringott's ride.
