Posted time was 210 minutes, and the queue was outside the main entrance and looped along the wall behind the wand shop. At the entrance they were warning of 3.5 to 4 hours queue. It took an hour to get into the building, and then 45 minutes later I was on the ride! Absolutely fantastic ride, and certainly worth the wait. Going to try for an evening/dusk ride if I can later in the week.
Did you do single rider for Hagrid as well? Just curious as theres a Tim Tracker video on YouTube where he advised avoiding it as the main queue moved quicker and was wondering if its changed.

Posted time was 210 all morning today so we didnt try to ride. When we walked past to leave though the queue was all inside so I dont think it can have been as long as posted.

Just now its showing 100 minutes.

We are here now and arrived at IOA at 8.30, they let you in and hold you and then at 9 everyone makes a dash for Hagrid. We were told in the queue that it was 210 minutes wait, it took 90. I have to say it was brilliant, a fantastic ride.

After taking 2.5 hours to ride on Saturday morning after getting in the queue at 8.50am we decided today to try it in the single rider line , I think we fell quite lucky as we managed to get all 4 of us on it within 40 mins.
I'm glad we did it as a family first but still really enjoyed it as a single rider.
Brilliant ride, we all loved it.

There was no single rider line the I rode, and to be honest I would rather see the whole queue the first time. Still planning on going back Thursday or Friday and I would love to try and get on in the evening.

We went 2 days ago... arrived at 07.40...park open at 08.30..
Held the queue near Seuss landings then made everyone walk behind security to the ride... of course people were pushing and speed walking to get there first and ended up being a bit of a crush...but we managed to ride with about a 30 minute wait from the queue entrance...its an excellent ride which I d love to do again and would risk the crush for!

Just to say if they do close the line and give an express pass check the colour of it. If its ruby coloured on the back these are passes you can actually use on Hagrids.
They dont always say this and I dont think Hagrids is actually named on it.
Ruby passes are the golden ticket so to speak, they are rare but if they evacuate the line it does happen, more often later in the day if they think they wont be able to reopen.

Great tip, many thanks!
