When Guests visit Universal Orlando Resort, they are surely in for a day of fun, memories, and thrill.

Whether you are at Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure (or Park Hopping between both), there are many attractions at each park that will send your stomach churning and leave many Guests screaming. Arguably, one of the most popular coasters at Universal is Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure.

When the attraction opened, Guests waited over 10+ hours to hop on the motorbike, and now, lines often boast to 60 minutes or longer if the virtual queue is not in place for that day. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is a thrilling coaster with a fantastic storyline. The ride also possesses dark ride elements with various show scenes for Guests to enjoy, including backward travel, launches, and drop tower-style drops!

Bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) recently posted a video to Twitter showing the coaster at night. Because Guests are on a motorbike, there is a light that the coaster projects from the front of each bike when the sun goes down, creating a very cool lighting effect.

As we can see from the below aerial video, when the lights are on, the coaster looks like it is slithering through the track, and the fun increases as two trains ride the track simultaneously. At points, it even looks as if the trains could be racing each other!

For a few moments, we can even see all three trains riding the track at the same time, illuminating the night sky with their motorbike headlights.
