Universal Orlando Resort is teasing first-look images of the magical creatures that await in Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

Every day through April 19, Universal Orlando Blog is unveiling the creatures from the ride, including fan-favourites from the Harry Potter franchise and a new creature that’s never been seen in the films.

So far, Universal has confirmed Fluffy, a giant three-headed dog who guards the Sorcerer’s Stone. As many fans of the franchise know, Fluffy has a weakness – he falls asleep to the sound of music.

In the upcoming attraction, visitors will confront Fluffy, who weighs 8,000 lbs, deep in the Forbidden Forest.

Universal has teased that the next creature of the week is “a swarm of mischief-makers who love their tricks”.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s new addition will be an immersive experience, combining storytelling and innovative coaster technology with elaborate environments – including an actual forest with more than 1,200 live trees.

Hogwarts’ gamekeeper Hagrid will take guests on a journey to the Forbidden Forest, as they join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class.

After boarding enchanted flying motorbikes and sidecars, things start to get our of control. The coaster careers around the forest at up to 50 mph, skimming obstacles and getting stuck in Devil’s Snare.
