Universal Orlando Resort, Orlando, Florida, has announced the official opening date for the new Harry Potter thrill ride debuting this year in Islands of Adventure.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure promises to be one of the most highly themed coaster experiences and will open on June 13, 2019. The core of the concept of the ride is Hogwarts' Gamekeeper and Care of Magical Creatures Professor, Rubeus Hagrid.
Riders will take a seat on Hagrid's motorbike and get a tour of the wizarding world's magical creatures. How exactly the ride will feature Hagrid remains to be seen, although it's likely the ride will combine both animatronics and indoor immersive screen technology.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is located in the space previously occupied by Dragon Challenge.
