Recently, a Guest visiting Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure shared an interesting experience.

The Guest said they were about to get on the ride when the lights came on and an alarm started going off. As a result, everyone was forced to exit the building.

“My husband and I waited in line for over an hour and just as we were going to get on, the lights came on and an alarm started going off,” User U/ConfusedConcha said in a Reddit post. “They made everyone exit the building, and the people on the ride were still going around so I’m assuming something happened inside of the building.”

There has been no confirmation from Universal Orlando on what may have caused the alarm, but Universal Team Members are expertly-trained in handling these situations and are able to assure Guest safety throughout any incidents that may occur.
