Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will open in June 2019
If you’re still waiting for Hagrid to show up at your door to reveal that you’re really a wizard, well, you may have to settle for the next best thing.
On Friday, Universal Orlando Resort announced it will be be bringing “Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure” rollercoaster to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, where muggles and wizards will be able to accompany Hagrid on a whirlwind journey to see some of the wizarding community’s rarest magical creatures.
The thrill ride, which will open at the theme park on June 13, is said to be their “most highly-themed coaster yet,” and will be located in Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure park.
Universal will release more details about the ride in March but, based on a rendering provided by the park, the experience appears to be a traditional coaster and not a 3D attraction.

The new Hagrid-themed ride will join other Potter-related attractions in Hogsmeade, including Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, which takes riders on a tour of Hogwarts, and the family-friendly Flight of the Hippogriff rollercoaster.
On the other side of the park, which is accessible by riding the Hogwarts Express train, guests can visit Diagon Alley, where they can shop for a wand at Ollivanders, dine at the Leaky Cauldron, and hop on a fast-paced ride through Gringotts bank.
