How does the queue work with regards to riding the bike and side car? Does the queue split? In which case how do you stay as a group? Otherwise who gets to sit where if you are sat with someone else?
When you get near the front of the queue they make sure you are standing in twos and they tell the person who is riding the motorbike to stand on the right and the person riding the sidecar to stand to the left. When you board the ride the person on the motorbike has to get on first, going through the sidecar to get to the motorbike. Some people who specifically wanted the motorbike were split and paired with a single rider instead.

My friend tried to get on it today... not a chance. It was closed.
She said its only accepting the special assistance fast passes and not the standard ones until December (Im assuming shes not been along to say anything on here yet)
Heres hoping she gets on before coming home. Fingers crossed for her and her family.

We are due to visit mid-Aug so wondering if things have settled down on Hagrid's? At least as much as you can expect from a brand new ride.

According to the app, it looks like the ride is now opening in the mornings and having less down time.

Is anyone there at the moment, and noticed any difference?

Is this ride set up for Child Swap yet? If so how does it work please? Both my kids will be too young to ride and both me and OH really would like to. Shame it's not accepting Express Pass

Not there myself but keep on checking on it. It definitely looks to be a lot more stable. Someone posted that they got through in 30mins a few days ago when 120mins was posted and there was only one downtime when they were putting another car on the track.

They have changed the opening so it now opens with the park but will close early (especially taking into account the queue line) so riding it at night doesn't look possible at the moment.

We were there last week and didnt get to ride it. Cast member there told me to get to the park as it opens and to walk fast to it, but with teens we didnt manage to do it. Every time we were in the park there were signs saying it was at capacity
