Universal Orlando Resort today revealed more details about Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, an all-new experience coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter on June 13, 2019. Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, and Alan Gilmore, Art Director for the Harry Potter films, share more details about the new adventure in the video below.
For the first time ever, join Hagrid as you fly far beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle on a thrilling roller coaster ride that plunges into the paths of some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.
It begins when you join Hagrid’s 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 world’s rarest magical creatures… but as often the case with Hagrid, things don’t 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 you’ll twist, turn and rush forward – and backward – at speeds of up to 50 mph into the dark forest.
Encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur; a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies; Fluffy the three-headed dog; and even one that’s never been seen in the films.
Hurl past challenging obstacles, drop into an endless pit of Devil’s Snare and so much more …while encountering a few surprises along the way.
In 2010, Universal Orlando Resort brought the wonder, excitement and adventure of the Harry Potter books and films to life for the first time with the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The expansion of the global phenomenon continued in 2014 with the launch of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida, allowing guests to experience even more extraordinary moments from Harry Potter’s magical world.
With the Hogwarts Express connecting both lands, providing guests the opportunity to board the iconic train and relive Harry’s unforgettable journey, Universal Orlando created the world’s first centrally-themed, multi-park experience.
