Universal Orlando's Escape from Gringotts uses motion base track segments. The RVs roll onto a flat piece of track and stop. Rider’s are rotated 90 degrees to the side to face a projection screen where they watch a video segment that simulates a freefall from a great height. Both cars pitch forwards at once as the track segment now acts like a simulator platform with mulitple degrees of freedom. After the troll attack, the track segment quickly reconnects and the RVs are sent on to the next scene.
