The newest attraction in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, is now officially open to guests!
This new adventure takes guests and Muggles alike deep into the Forbidden Forest aboard their own motorcycles and sidecars – encountering all sorts of magical creatures, like Cornish Pixies, Centaurs, giant spiders, Fluffy the three-headed dog, and the never-before-seen Blast-Ended Skrewts.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure features seven total launches, more than any roller coaster in the world. There’s also a surprise free-fall vertical drop, plunging down nearly 17 feet. This also now the longest coaster in Florida, measuring at nearly a mile in length.
Fans are more than excited to take this trip past the Hogwarts grounds – so much so, in fact, that the current wait time to ride sits at 600 minutes, or 10 hours.
