On Tuesday, an event described as a backstage fire struck Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, causing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s latest and most popular attraction to close. 

Three days later, the ride is still closed.

According to the Universal Orlando Resort app, Hagrid’s Motorbike roller coaster is still closed at Universal’s Islands of Adventure and there is no word yet on when the attraction will be back up and running.

When Hagrid’s Motorbike opened with the rest of Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida, and the rest of Universal Orlando Resort, it was the only attraction accessible only via the new virtual line system due to its immense pre-pandemic popularity. 

The news of the extended closure comes a week after Universal announced that A Day in the Park with Barney, Fast & Furious: Supercharged, Kang & Kudos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl, and Fear Factor Live at Universal Studios Florida, and Storm Force Accelatron at Islands of Adventure would be temporarily closed.
