Universal Orlando Resort has revealed even more details about their new rollercoaster, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.
Guests will board motorbikes and sidecars and enter the world’s first “story coaster”. As you twist and turn through the Forbidden Forest you’ll come across a number of weird and wonderful creatures including a Centaur, Cornish Pixies and the never seen before Blast-Ended Skrewts.
As you ride through 1,200 trees you’ll “feel the freedom of flight” no matter if you’re on the bike or in the sidecar. You’ll race through the forest at 50mph thanks to the coaster’s 7 launches, the most of any coaster in the world.
The thrilling coaster is also the first in the US to have a free-fall vertical drop. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is also the longest rollercoaster in Florida at a whopping 5,053 feet.
The attraction also takes you into new areas of Hogwarts that guests won’t have seen before. Universal Orlando have worked with the team behind the Warner Bros. movies to create new ruins that Hagrid has taken over for his Care of Magical Creatures lessons.
The ruins also have items that the Hogwarts Groundskeeper uses for his lessons including “dragon eggs on the verge of hatching and a makeshift nursery where Hagrid kept his Blast-Ended Skrewts”
You’ll learn all about the lesson you are going to take thanks to a pre-show featuring Arthur Weasley, Hagrid and his beloved hound Fang. This pre-show will be brought to life thanks to projections and special effects.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be opening on 13th June at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort’s Islands of Adventure theme park.
