If you’re a Harry Potter lover, a self-certified witch or wizard, a rollercoaster enthusiast, or all three, you’re going to love the brand-new ride opening at Universal Orlando Resort. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is a thrilling rollercoaster located in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, launching on 13th
Set in the location of the old (but not forgotten!) Dragons Challenge ride, the area has been completely revamped. Join Hagrid on a thrilling adventure to the edge of the Forbidden Forest and enter the ruins behind his hut, which seems to have been abandoned for centuries. Expect to meet the mythical creatures from the books and films as you soar through the undergrowth on Hagrid’s magical motorbike.
Want to hear the inside scoop? Head of Marketing at Ocean Florida, Sabrina, was lucky enough to be one of the first to experience this awesome ride. Here’s what she thinks:
“Universal have packed two unique experiences into one mega ride. You absolutely have to ride it twice. Expect a slightly rickety, thrill as you take hold of the throttle on Hagrid’s eponymous bike. Then opt for a smoother ride and chance to take in the views when you nestle into the sidecar.
Orlando’s first coaster free fall doesn’t disappoint and comes as an absolute shock -no matter how much you try to prepare. It takes you down into the belly of the forbidden forest where more magical creatures await including an enormous blast ended skrewt!
The ride gives you a full sensory experience, from the scent of the towering trees, being blasted by water and blinded by fog you start to understand why this forest is forbidden.
Watch out the storybook unicorns at the end - they really are real!
This is a story-ride. If you love Revenge of the Mummy™, I guarantee this will be your new favourite.”
