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:
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!
