Perhaps the most popular Universal Orlando Resort attraction currently is Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

The popular attraction is no stranger to 3-digit wait times and has become a staple in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter because of the unique nature of the roller coaster.

When riding Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, there are plenty of interesting sights to see in the line queue leading up to the ride, but nothing beats the story-coaster nature of the attraction as Guests travel through the Forbidden Forest with Hagrid on their very own motorbike.

However, that does not mean that the attraction doesn’t have times where things malfunction.

TikTok user @coasterkings recently posted a rare video of the attraction breaking down at what some may say is the best part of the ride.

Who knows what #rollercoaster we’re stuck on, here?

As you’re trapped in Devil’s Snare, the track completely drops to reveal a way out. It seems just as the drop happened, the ride came to a halt. You can see the tunnel exit and the lights are turned on, revealing mechanisms inside the cave that are not normally seen.

Of course, Universal Team Members have been expertly trained on how to handle ride malfunctions and they were able to get the ride started back. If Guests have to be evacuated, rest assured that Universal Team Members would ensure safety throughout the whole process.
