An exciting new highly themed roller coaster is the newest addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is now open at Universal's Islands of Adventure. It's already being called one of the best attractions ever built by those that have gotten the chance to ride it already!
This thrilling new experience takes guests on a wild and winding tour beyond the grounds of Hogwarts, to the edge of the Forbidden Forest. With seven coaster launches, a new world record, you'll feel the power of your flying motorbike's engine rev as you soar through—and above—the hundreds of trees that make up the forest.
Guests that have had the chance to ride this new attraction have been singing its praises. The mix of highly themed sets and environments, animatronic characters and creatures, and a unique collection of roller coaster elements all come together in perfect harmony to make a brand-new experience unlike anything else in the world.
Hagrid is of course your guide on this magical journey around the Forbidden Forest. Today's lesson will teach you about Blast-Ended Skrewts, large crab-like creatures that can shoot fire. Hagrid hopes we may encounter other magical creatures along the way, including a unicorn. As is usually the case with Hagrid, not everything always goes according to plan.
Along your journey you'll encounter all sorts of other amazing creatures. You'll pass by Fluffy, the massive three-headed dog, a Centaur lurking in the shadows, more than 20 flying Cornish Pixies, and the Devil's Snare, an enchanted plant to wraps its tendrils around anything within reach.
Riders get to choose whether to sit on the motorbike or the sidecar seat for their trip, each offering a different ride experience. This one-of-a-kind roller coaster attraction boasts speeds up to 50 mph, a backwards section, and a free-fall drop straight down unlike anything else in Florida. In fact, Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is the longest coaster in Florida, at nearly a mile long.
Hurry and get your tickets to Universal Orlando now, so you too can ride the newest addition to the Wizarding World, and what some are calling the best new ride in Orlando. Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is located near Hogwarts Castle, in Hogsmeade Village, at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Get ready, hold on tight, and let's go!
