It's been a while since the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade has had an update and we are excited to share that Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure at Universal's Islands of Adventure is about to open next week. This roller coaster is replacing the former Dragon Challenge and further expands the Harry Potter-themed world within this Universal Studios park. The ride is expected to be fully open by mid-June and the progress reported by visitors shows that Universal is ready to launch.


Inspired by the character of Rubeus Hagrid—the half-giant Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts School of Wizardry—the roller coaster features his iconic motorbike as the central element of the ride's storyline. And it is this "roller coaster train" that starts out by propelling Muggles on a 70-degree catapulting sequence that quickly speeds them up to 50 miles per hour for an incredible and thrilling ride, where guests will encounter a variety of creatures during the reportedly 3-minute roller coaster ride.
