On June 13, 2019, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure—the epic new addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter—soars into Universal Orlando Resort and becomes the most highly themed immersive coaster experience yet. Learn what’s been revealed about the magical new adventure, including some of the creatures student groups will meet along the way.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure combines a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets, among them an actual forest with more than 1,200 live trees. It also gives students 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, students 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.
It all begins with Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class, where students board magical motorbikes specially designed to make them feel the freedom of flight. They’ll either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar as they embark on a journey that brings 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, students 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—The Blast-Ended Skrewt.
- 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, of course.
The magic of Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure began with the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s 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, which allows students to travel between both lands.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be located in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Learn more by visiting Universal Studios Orlando.
