We'll get our chance to experience an all-new adventure in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter when Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opens this summer. Opening June 13, 2019 at Universal's Islands of Adventure, this new roller coaster will be unlike anything else currently on offer at Universal Orlando Resort. We will come face-to-face with some of the wizarding world's rarest magical creatures, while venturing through the Forbidden Forest on Hargid's motorbike.
To prepare for this incredible new ride, Universal Orlando has planted 1,200 live trees. What better way to make you feel like you're traveling through the Forbidden Forest than by planting an actual forest? The ride will reach new levels of storytelling, by combining innovative coaster technology with highly detailed environments — some we've never even encountered before.
Our journey begins when we join Hagrid for his Care of Magical Creatures class. We then board magical motorbikes specially designed to make you feel like you're actually flying. Additionally, sitting in the motorcycle seat or the adjacent sidecar will provide two very different ride experiences.
Now we're ready to explore the Forbidden Forest, and meet some of the magical creatures that call the forest home — but, as is often the case with Hagrid, not everything goes according to plan. Throughout our journey through the dark forest, we will be greeted by a majestic Centaur, a creature with both human and horse-like characteristics. We'll encounter a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies, which may be small, but can cause a tremendous amount of damage when in groups. We'll even come face-to-face with Fluffy, the massive three-headed dog!
Along the way we'll be avoiding challenging obstacles in our path, swirling up and around new immersive environments. We'll drop into an endless pit and become entangled in a thicket of Devil's Snare. There will even be a creature on the ride that has never been seen before in the films. Of course, there will also be a few other surprises along the way.
This freewheeling coaster flight will have us twisting, turning, rushing forward and backward, at speeds up to 50 miles per hour – and you can only experience this epic new attraction at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is set to open June 13, 2019 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. You won't want to miss it!
