This Video Will Show You What It'll Be Like to Ride on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure
A new video gives a first look into what the thrilling ride will be like on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opening this June.
The ride, which is opening at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort on June 13, will stand as both Florida’s longest roller coaster and the roller coaster with the world’s most launches.
The ride is set to be the theme park’s “most highly-themed, immersive coaster experience yet,” whisking riders on a track that spans 5,053 feet, almost a mile.
The adventure starts as guests enter the ruins hidden behind Hagrid’s hut, created with production designers and art directors from the "Harry Potter" flicks to bring the world to life.
Guests will join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class, where they’ll come into contact with dragon eggs and a nursery housing Hagrid’s Blast-Ended Skrewts (with the ride being the first time the creatures will be brought to life).
Riders will then hop on their motorbikes, created to allow passengers to feel a sense of flight as they soar underneath bridges and past more than 1,000 trees planted for the attraction.
The ride features seven different launches, an unexpected drop that sends riders down nearly 17 feet, and a section where riders are catapulted 65 feet into the air at a more than 70-degree angle, with appearances from characters that include everyone from Arthur Weasley to Hagrid's dog, Fang, along the way.
When the roller coast opens this June, visitors can enjoy the attraction alongside others that include Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey — a thrilling ride through Hogwarts Castle to encounter Dementors — and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, where riders make their way through the Gringotts Wizarding Bank.
