I don’t know about you, but I have ALWAYS (see what I did there?!) wanted to visit Harry & his friends at Hogwarts around the holidays. It looks so magical with the snow and…magic. Every time I read one of the books or watch a movie, I picture what it would be like to be there with them.

With our very own Hogwarts at Islands of Adventure, that Christmas Magic is not so far away! Universal has announced that the Holiday celebration will run from November 16 – January 5.

  • The Wizarding World will be completely decorated for holidays, the restaurants will have themed food & beverages, and of course, the entertainment will be very merry

  • The Grinch will perform in the Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular in Islands of Adveture
  • Universal Resort Hotels will be decorated and have special events
  • Special EVE Party on New Year’s Eve at City Walk

New Details: Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

© Universal Studios

Universal has released more details about their new coaster debuting June 13th.

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will begin when you join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures Class. Hagrid will have you board a motorbike, just like the one given to him by Sirius Black in the movies. Guests will ride 2 across and will have the choice of the bike or the side car next to it. Each will give a different experience. Hagrid will lead you down into the Forbidden Forest. (Which is actually made of live trees!) From there, in true Hagrid fashion, things get completely out of hand. You will wind up running into several magical creatures and fantastic beasts. The Motorbike will encounter Cornish Pixies, Fluffy, Centaurs and more! The art director teases that there will even be one beast we have never seen before. Hopefully you remember your spells because they will come in handy in this adventure.

This “Flight” will have you spinning, turning, and rushing both forwards and backwards. Speeds of up to 50mph will be reached. No word yet on a height limit -stay tuned for that!

This thrilling new coaster will be in Islands of Adventure where Dueling Dragons used to be. Knowing how amazing and immersive the other Wizarding World attractions are, I am so excited to go visit again and ride this new coaster.

Universal happens to have a promotion and it is still available for purchase till March 14th. With this offer, you purchase a 2 day, 2 park pass and you get two additional days free! This reduces the daily rate to $69! The tickets purchased through this promotion are valid through the end of June. You can take advantage of it and go see the newest addition.

Tip: When you stay on property, you gain access to the Wizarding World an hour earlier than the general population. This will give you a huge advantage with the line for this new ride as well as the other Wizarding World attractions. Contact me and we can put a package together for you!
