At last, the wait is over! Harry Potter fans have patiently been waiting for the opening of the newest ride at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. And on June 13, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will finally be open to guests. Tonight, Universal Orlando is kicking off the festivities with a special live stream of the opening celebration.
Fans will get a front seat view of Universal Orlando’s most highly themed, immersive coaster courtesy of this live stream. The live stream will begin at 8:30 pm today, Tuesday, June 11 on Universal Orlando’s YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter channels. Along with getting to “ride” the coaster, the live stream will also feature appearances from our favorite “Harry Potter” film stars. So, make sure to tune in and celebrate the world’s first “story coaster”.
This amazing new ride will take you deep into the wilds of the Forbidden Forest. With Hagrid as your guide, you will go beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle to see magical creatures and experience some surprises along the way!
Guests will either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar for a “different experience” that will bring guests closer to some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.
Additionally, the attraction will be a freewheeling coaster flight where guests will get to twist, turn and rush forward and backward at speeds up to 50 mph into the dark forest.
Finally, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will combine a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets, including an actual forest with more than 1,200 live trees.
