Here’s Your First Look at the New Harry Potter Roller Coaster

Read next

There has been very little information so far about the new Harry Potter roller coaster set to open at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure in 2019—until now. The very first glimpse of the new Harry Potter roller coaster has finally landed and it says a lot about how magical the ride will truly be.

While fans will still have to wait on details like the name of the ride and its exact open date, a single image was just released by the official Wizarding World site, Pottermore, and it says us a lot without very many words. See for yourself:

The teaser image might just be an artist’s rendering, but if you look beyond the tracks, you’ll find a sea of green trees indicating that the ride is set to take place in the Forbidden Forest that surrounds Hogwarts Castle. Besides the trees, you’ll also notice little creatures fluttering around, which tells us that there could definitely be some magical creature encounters.

Perhaps in even an Aragog sighting? We can only hope!

While it might just be a tiny peek, we won’t have to wait long to see more. After all, 2019 is just around the corner and we’re sure this will just be the first of many sneak peeks and teasers of the new Harry Potter coaster to come before then.
