Universal Orlando recently revealed more details about the exciting new Harry Potter themed roller coaster coming to Islands of Adventure this summer.
Opening June 13, 2019, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will take guests on a flight through “the paths of some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.” Concept art shows guests hopping aboard trains that look like Hagrid’s motorbike with a side car attached.
Universal is claiming this is the park’s “most highly-themed coaster” and guests can expect to come across many of the Wizarding World’s rarest creatures. Fans will remember some of Hagrid's adventures with magical creatures, the most famous of which is Buckbeak the Hippogriff in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Hagrid secretly harboring Norbert the dragon in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Universal has promised this will be a “next generation thrill-ride”. The attraction will bring together “new level of storytelling with an action-packed adventure” in a way guests have never before experienced.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure replaces the Dragon Challenge, which closed September 2017.
Stay tuned for more details.
