New Details Revealed for Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

At a press event last night in London, at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Universal shared with us details of the new ride "Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure". We were joined by Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and Alan Gilmore the Art Director for the Harry Potter films.









THE EXPERIENCE:

It begins when you join Hagrids Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make you feel the freedom of flight. For your journey you can either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar, providing two unique experiences. For the first time, you will soar through the Forbidden Forest and come face-to-face with some of the wizarding worlds rarest magical creatures but as often the case with Hagrid, things dont go as planned.
  • This new experience combines a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets including an actual forest with 1,200 live trees!
  • Experience a freewheeling coaster flight where youll twist, turn and rush forward and backward at speeds of up to 50 mph into the dark forest
  • Encounter some of the wizarding worlds rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur; a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies; Fluffy the three-headed dog; and even one thats never been seen in the films
  • Hurl past challenging obstacles, drop into an endless pit of Devils Snare and so much more while encountering a few surprises along the way

Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be an epic new addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. The magic began with the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogsmeade at Universals Islands of Adventure. The expansion of the global phenomenon continued with the launch of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida and the Hogwarts Express allowing guests to travel between both lands. And when it opens on 13th June 2019, Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will join the lineup of award-winning entertainment experiences in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and bring an all-new adventure inspired by J.K. Rowlings beloved stories to life.

Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be located in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogsmeade at Universals Islands of Adventure. More details about the new experience will be revealed in the months ahead.

Both myself and my 6 year old son are soooo excited for this! Hopefully details on height restrictions etc will surface soon, he is desperate to go on it so hopefully he will meet the ride requirements!

It sounds stunning - I like the 'two types of ride experience' idea though I'm still a bit concerned about the throughput - at 50mph there'd have to be fair separation between the ride vehicles and they presumably aren't going to seat that many at once - thus, I imagine queues for this will be quite intense.

Hopefully riding the motorbike-half of the vehicle is less terrifying than Steeplechase at Blackpool!

Re: Height limits, I'd expect 48" - that sort of speed sounds too high for anything lower, but without inversions it hopefully shouldn't be higher.

I was already excited. Now, Im stupidly excited! Love the idea of two different ride experiences. Can not wait to return and give this a whirl.

Great to see Tom Felton spreading the joy too.
