And here’s a look at the ride itself.
Harry Potter film stars Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Evanna Lynch, Warwick Davis, James Phelps and Oliver Phelps brought a little magic to Universal Orlando Resort for the opening celebration of Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, debuting to guests on June 13. The beloved Harry Potter film stars reunited and led special guests in a spellbinding moment to celebrate the epic new addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
From rich sets and an actual forest with 1,200 trees to ground-breaking coaster technology and a captivating storyline, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be the most highly-themed, immersive coaster experience yet – becoming the world’s first “story coaster.”
Get ready to soar into one of the most mysterious places in the Wizarding World – the Forbidden Forest. Aboard magical motorbikes, guests will actually feel the freedom of flight as they journey to the edge of the forest – regardless of if they’re on the motorcycle or in the adjacent sidecar. They’ll ascend above the trees, rapidly accelerate through mysterious ruins, speed forward – and backward, and so much more as they search for the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.
The “story coaster” will feature innovative technology that is integrated so seamlessly into the surrounding environments, guests won’t know what to expect next. Along the way, they’ll experience thrills they’ve never felt on a coaster before, including:
The most launches of any roller coaster in the world – with 7 total launches
Unexpectedly dropping nearly 17 feet on the first coaster in the U.S. to feature a free-fall vertical drop
Being catapulted 65 feet in the air at a more than 70 degree angle – and then immediately dropping backward in one movement
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will also be the longest roller coaster in Florida, measuring nearly a mile in length (5,053 feet).
