Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure TEXTLESS

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is getting an epic new expansion this summer at Universal Orlando Resort and we have all-new details (and a sneak peek at new art!) on what fans should expect!

It all began with Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, where attendees could get their hands on real-world Butterbeer and walk the halls of Hogwarts, and then the journey expanded to Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida. Connected the two magical places was the Hogwarts Express, and now there's more! Let's take a deeper dive into Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, the new, super detailed and highly ambitious coaster coming to Universal Orlando Resort on June 13, 2019!

Official Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Details

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will combine a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets – including an actual forest with more than 1,200 live trees. It will also give guests the unique opportunity to join Hagrid – one of the most beloved characters in the Harry Potter films – on a journey to one of the most mysterious places in the wizarding world – the Forbidden Forest. With Hagrid as their guide, guests will fly deep into the Forbidden Forest and brave the mysteries and thrills beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle on a groundbreaking coaster experience unlike any other.

"I promise you it'll be the most highly themed, immersive coaster experience ever created."

It all begins when guests (starting at 48” tall) join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make them feel the freedom of flight. Guests will either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar as they embark on a journey that will bring them closer to some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures. But as they make their way through the Forbidden Forest… things don’t go as planned. During the adventure, guests will:

  • Experience a freewheeling coaster flight where they’ll twist, turn and rush forward – and backward – at speeds 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 a creature that’s never been seen in the films
  • Hurl past challenging obstacles, become entangled in a thicket of Devil’s Snare and so much more …while encountering a few surprises along the way.
