Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opens today. It does look like such an amazing ride. Check out some of the reviews and videos from this soft opening!
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure
The new coaster features a vertical free-fall, several launches (the most of any coaster in the world!), and a near vertical launch followed by a backwards drop. Plus, it’s now the longest roller coaster in Florida!
Our friends at Adventures by Daddy got a sneak peek of the new ride. Be sure to check out his post, as well as the video of the preview show for the ride.
The ride starts before you even mount Hagrid’s motorcycle with your entrance to the castle.
The queue takes you through what used to be the queue building for Dueling Dragons/Dragon Challenge, but with all new theming to match the Hagrid storyline. You meet up with Professor Hagrid, as well as his best friend, Fluffy.
The ride features some of the most life-like animated figures ever created for a ride-show. You will feel totally immersed in the world of Harry Potter.

The ride is very unique and there have already been rumors of technical issues with the ride. However, that’s to be expected, especially on a coaster that features so many firsts in it’s category. Be prepared to have your patience tested. We see it as just part of the “adventure” in Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.
