ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Lines to get on the new Harry Potter ride at Universal Orlando Resort were more than seven hours long Tuesday — enough time to watch a couple of Harry Potter movies or for a fast reader to get through a Harry Potter book.

Folks on Twitter were tweeting pictures of a sign listing the 450-minute wait time outside the ride, called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.

Universal spokesman Tom Schroder confirmed the long lines, though he noted that wait time varied throughout the day. Universal workers were handing out tickets with return times printed on them to ease congestion.

The new park zone is called The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley. Universal's original Harry Potter park, called The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Hogsmeade, opened in 2010.
