So as you all know, Universal Orlando is getting ready to unveil a new coaster in The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade. Universal announced last month that Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure would be coming soon!
Today we learn that the ride will be opening on June 13, 2019. Along with many other new details about the ride! Universal Orlando gave us the video below to share the details.
The video stars two special guests, Tom Felton (who plays Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter) and Alan Gilmore (Art Director for Harry Potter films). Check it out!
It begins when you join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make you feel the freedom of flight. For your journey you can either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar, providing two unique experiences. For the first time, you will soar through the Forbidden Forest and come face-to-face with some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures… but as often the case with Hagrid, things don’t go as planned.
- This new experience combines a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets – including an actual forest with 1,200 live trees!
- Experience a freewheeling coaster flight where you’ll twist, turn and rush forward – and backward – at speeds of 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 one that’s never been seen in the films
- Hurl past challenging obstacles, drop into an endless pit of Devil’s Snare and so much more …while encountering a few surprises along the way
#WizardingWorldOrlando for more.
