The Florida park is opening Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure later this year, but fans have got a sneak peek of what to expect in a brand new video.
In fact, Universal has shared a glimpse of what it will be like when you’re on the ride with a new CGI creation which follows the track through the Forbidden Forest.
And it looks like a very thrilling ride.
We’re talking the most launches of any rollercoaster in the world with a total of SEVEN launches, unexpected drops of nearly 17 feet including a free-fall vertical drop, and being catapulted 65 feet into the air at more than a 70 degree angle.
Before taking off on the exciting journey, riders will have the chance to explore the abandoned ruins behind Hagrid’s Hut (where the guests’ Care of Magical Creatures class will begin).
Make sure to keep an eye out for characters including Arthur Weasley, Fang the dog and even Hagrid himself in the pre-show experience which promises heaps of digital projections and special effects.
Riders will then sit aboard magical motorbikes like Hagrid’s and follow the Hogwarts gamekeeper above the trees as they go in search of some of the Wizarding World’s rarest magical creatures.
That includes some never-before-seen creatures .
Oh, and it will also be the longest roller coaster in Florida, measuring nearly a mile in length (5,053 feet).
The new ride will open on Thursday 13th June 2019 and will be part of the Hogsmeade offering inside Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park where you can find plenty more Harry Potter themed rides and attractions.
