Fans waited in line at Universal Orlando Resort for Tuesday's opening of the new attraction, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley.

On Tuesday morning, the wait for the Escape from Gringott's Bank ride was up to six hours long, reported WESH TV.

Another feature of the new park is a train called Hogwart's Express, which takes visitors who have a two-park pass from the Hogsmeade area in Islands of Adventure to Diagon Alley, which is located in a new, expanded area of Universal.
