15 Hour Queue to Ride Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure ride opened yesterday and one of our DIBB members was in the line for nearly 15 hours before getting to ride this magical new attraction at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando.

Unlike the Dragon's Challenge, which the new ride replaced, the motorbike adventure is slower paced and has riders mounting a train of motorcycles with side cars.

15 minutes after park opening Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure was showing a 10 hour wait.

DIBB member going by the name 'Rachhh', joined the queue at what was reported to be an 8 hour wait, reporting through the day that she was still in the queue, making friends and having fun! Getting close to the entrance, the ride had some technical difficulties which extended the wait. She eventually got to ride (twice) after waiting nearly 15 hours in line... WOW!

Follow Rachhh's epic queue from page 7 on this thread https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/sho...1132115&page=7

If this had a 15 hour queue just how bad will Galaxy's Edge area and Smugglers run be!

One of the posts I read stated that they were allowed out for bathroom breaks, and there were food & drink stands along the queue... Seems quite well organised!

Disney: FOP had queues up to 6 hours long
Universal: Hold my beer...


Oh. My. God. The world really has gone crazy. Waiting all day just for one ride?!? As mentioned above, I couldn't physically stand in a queue for 15 hours and, personally, I wouldn't choose to join a queue longer than a tenth of that time. No ride is worth that long a wait.

Still, hat's off to Rachhh. They certainly were determined and committed.

It does make me think that I've woefully underestimated what the queues at Galaxy's Edge will be like once it opens at WDW without a reservation system in place.

I'm still struggling to understand why they have chosen to open at WDW without any kind of reservation system. Disneyland seems to have been well managed but I can see Hollywoods Studios being horrendous in the opening days and weeks.
