The immersive coaster is set to open on June 13 and 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.
It all begins when guests (starting at 48" tall) join Hagrid's Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make them feel the freedom of flight. Guests will either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar as they embark on a journey that will bring them closer to some of the wizarding world's rarest magical creatures. But as they make their way through the Forbidden Forest…things don't go as planned. During the adventure, guests will:
*Experience a freewheeling coaster flight where they'll twist, turn and rush forward - and backward - at speeds up to 50 mph into the dark forest
*Encounter some of the wizarding world's rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur, a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies, Fluffy, the three-headed dog - and even a creature that's never been seen in the films
*Hurl past challenging obstacles, become entangled in a thicket of Devil's Snare and so much more …while encountering a few surprises along the way.
Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be located in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade at Universal's Islands of Adventure. More details about the new experience will be revealed in the months ahead. For more information and Universal Orlando ticket options, visit www.universalorlando.com.
