Universal Orlando Resort has released a sneak peek of Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure – its most thrilling and innovative coaster experience yet.
Featuring rich sets, groundbreaking coaster technology and a captivating storyline, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s new addition is highly-themed and immersive.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, the world’s first ‘story coaster’, is the longest roller coaster in Florida, at 5,053 feet.
With seven total launches, it boasts the most launches of any roller coaster in the world. Guests will catapult 65 feet in the air at a 70 degree angle, and will drop nearly 17 feet on the first coaster in the US with a free-fall vertical drop.
Sneak peek of the new Harry Potter ride
Before taking off on a journey through the Forbidden Forest, riders will enter abandoned ruins behind Hagrid’s hut, where their Care of Magical Creatures class begins.
As they make their way to the enchanted motorbikes, guests will see materials from the class, including a makeshift nursery where Hagrid kept his Blast-Ended Skrewts.
Guests will also meet characters from the Harry Potter films, including Arthur Weasley, Hagrid, and his loyal dog, Fang, during a pre-show experience brought to life with digital projection and special effects.
Other rare magical creatures featured in the new attraction include a majestic Centaur, a swarm of mischievous Cornish pixies, and Fluffy, the three-headed dog.
