Hold onto your broomsticks, because the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort is about to get a seriously magical upgrade. A brand new ride, dubbed Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, will arrive this Summer, bringing park-goers an "immersive" and "thrilling" roller coaster ride that twists, turns, and plunges forward (and backward!) through the Forbidden Forest. Bloody hell, we can hardly contain our excitement!
Located in the Hogsmeade area of the Florida theme park, the forthcoming attraction seats riders on either a motorcycle or adjacent sidecar, which together are designed to look like the old-school motorbike that Sirius Black left Hagrid. The ride soars among more than 1,200 live trees at speeds up to 50 mph, bringing guests into contact with some of the wizarding world's rarest magical creatures, including Centaurs, Cornish Pixies, and Fluffy, the three-headed dog — all with Hagrid as the trusty guide.
Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure officially opens on June 13, joining other Wizarding World attractions, such as Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. Watch the new video ahead to see Draco Malfoy — er, Tom Felton — and art director Alan Gilmore reveal more details about the attraction. June simply can't come soon enough!
