Hagrid’s Very Own Has Wizarding World of Harry Potter Ride Is Finally Open

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter just got a magical new ride—and you’re going to want to apparate to Orlando, Florida ASAP, because Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is finally open!

In 2017, Universal Orlando said goodbye to The Dragon Challenge and finally revealed its replacement. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opened on Jun. 13, 2019 at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Hogsmeade and it’s not-so-surprisingly getting major attention.

The ride will resemble Hagrid’s motorbike and sidecar, with guests having the option of riding on either. Riders will get a tour of some of the rarest magical creatures in the wizarding world, which will reportedly be animatronic and not digitally generated.

The opening day action quickly made its way to social media, with plenty of #WizardingWorldOrlando posts showing up on Twitter!

The mile-long journey also comes with an equally long line. According to CNBC, opening day riders could expect a 10-hour wait. Fortunately for would-be riders, the park used a virtual queue—eliminating the need to stand in line all day. Instead, riders receive an alert when they’re on deck.
