Harry Potter fans have yet another reason to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Orlando Resort. A new Hagrid-themed attraction is opening on June 13, and Universal is calling it “the most highly themed, immersive coaster experience yet.” Those are some pretty high expectations, but all signs point to the ride meeting them.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is equipped with seats that look like Sirius/Hagrid’s magical motorbike and its sidecar. They are designed to allow passengers to “feel the freedom of flight” as they blast at 50 mph “into the Forbidden Forest and brave the mysteries and thrills beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle.” Because the ride is meant to be part of one of Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class, you’ll encounter some rare magical beings, such as a majestic Centaur, a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies, and, of course, Fluffy, the three-headed dog.
Tickets aren’t available yet, but you should probably sign up to get updates and receive special deals for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
