More Magical Creatures at Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

This week, Universal Orlando has revealed more about the magical creatures youíll encounter on Hagridís Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, the new epic adventure opening June 13 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Ė Hogsmeade at Universalís Islands of Adventure.

Blast-Ended Skrewt



For the first time ever, youíll be able to come face-to-face (or face-to-rear) with a Blast-Ended Skrewt on Hagridís Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. Described as a cross between scorpions and elongated crabs, Skrewts arenít afraid to attack other Skrewts they encounter and have incredibly strong armor that canít be penetrated by spells Ė proving to be a challenge for Hagrid since they hatched.

On your journey through the Forbidden Forest during Hagridís Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, youíll encounter Blast-Ended Skrewts up to 8 feet long with tails up to ten-feet high and topped with a massive stinger. The Blast-Ended Skrewt is the main lesson for the day but, as with all adventures with Hagrid, things donít always go to planÖ

Fun Facts:
  • Blast-Ended Skrewts were first introduced in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and also mentioned in Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • As you may have read in the book, Hagrid created these unique creatures by crossbreeding Fire Crabs and Manticores Ė fierce creatures in their own right
  • Skrewts create actual fire from their Ďblasting-ends,í igniting at random intervals Ė so be wary during your encounter
  • Even if youíre far enough to avoid their fire, watch out as you may still catch a whiff of their powerful scentÖ known to smell like rotting fish

Centaurs



A Centaur is a magical creature with a human head, torso and arms, joined to a horseís body. They are, however, their own species and should be treated with great respect.

As you make your way into the dark forest on Hagridís Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, look out for this mysterious archer in the distance ready to strike. He stands at 8 ft. tall, which would probably make him a great athlete in the Muggle world.

Fun Facts:
  • In Harry Potter and the Sorcererís Stone, Hagrid is friendly with the Centaur herds as he regularly enters the Forbidden Forest to help injured creatures
  • According to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, these forest-dwelling beings usually live in herds of between 10 and 50 and are well-versed in magical healing, divination, archery and astronomy
  • Centaurs made their first appearance in the films during Harry Potterís detention in the Forbidden Forest in Harry Potter and the Sorcererís Stone

Devilís Snare



While Devilís Snare isnít a creature, we couldnít pass up the opportunity to mention this perilous plant from the wizarding world Ė often strangling people who touch it with its dexterous vines. Devilís Snare flourishes in damp, dark environments and it has a strong dislike of light and fire Ė remember that for your journey!

Speaking of your journey, Devilís Snare is one of the many challenges youíll face on Hagridís Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. You may even find yourself entangled in a thicket of this dangerous plant but remember to remain calm! If you donít, you may end up entangled in hundreds of its vines

Fun Fact:
  • it made its first film appearance in Harry Potter and the Sorcererís Stone when the brave Hermione told her friends how to defeat this dangerous force.

Cornish Pixies



Cornish pixies are electric blue tricksters who love to create mischief Ė often at the expense of others. These mischievous creatures fly, and have also been known to seize unwary humans by the ears and deposit them at the tops of tall trees and buildings Ė poor Neville Longbottom.

n Hagridís Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, youíll see these troublesome creatures wreaking havoc on an infamous blue carÖ and in places you may not expect. Theyíre about 13 inches tall and youíll find more than 20 pixies throughout your adventure. Happy hunting!

Fun Facts:
  • According to Pottermore, Cornish pixies can produce a high-pitched jabbering thatís only comprehensible to other pixies
  • Cornish pixies made their first film appearance in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets during Gilderoy Lockhartís Defense Against the Dark Arts class
