Update: Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

© 2019 Universal Studios

We have the first photos and some video of this ride and it…is….awesome! I am giddy over how immersive and detailed it is! Still scheduled to open June 13th, this ride is blowing away records left and right. Here are some facts direct from Universal themselves:

  • This will take us beyond Hogwarts – Mostly taking place in the Forbidden Forest, this attraction will take us to a whole new part of the Wizarding World
  • New Environments & Sets – Inside never before seen ruins, you will be able to see habitats where Hagrid Kept his Blast-Ended Skrewts, dragon eggs that he is currently nursing that are just about to hatch, and many more materials used during his Care of Magical Creatures Class. Let’s not forget some familiar faces that we will see as well – Arthur Weasley, Hagrid, and even Fang
  • Most Launches – This coaster will have 7 launches, the most of any coaster in the world
  • Vertical Drop! – You will be dropped, vertically, 17 feet
  • Longest Roller Coaster in Florida – Nearly a mile
  • Two Different “Rides” – Your riding in Hagrid’s Motorbike, choose from riding the bike or riding in the sidecar
  • Will launch you 65 ft into the air at a 70 Degree angle, then drop you straight backward in one smooth motion

The unpredictability of this ride is going to be crazy and so exciting! I cannot wait! Tip: Riding this at night will feel even more authentic! Check out a sneak peek video below:
