Rubeus Hagrid, or just Hagrid, is a lovable character in the Harry Potter Universe. While not always a major character, he always acts as a friend with undying loyalty to the titular character.
As any devout fan of the Harry Potter series will tell you there are numerous things each fan wishes they could experience. Among the countless things on that list, riding on Hagrid’s motorbike is undoubtedly at the top.
Well, fans will have to wonder no more. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be opening its passenger seat up for exploration on June 13, 2019, at Universal Orlando Resort.
A Universal representative had the following to say:
“For the first time ever, guests will fly with Hagrid on a thrilling roller coaster ride that plunges into the path of some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.”
The list of creatures has not yet been provided, but with the numerous choices the sky is the limit, (no pun intended.) Given their importance the overall plot of their books, and by extension movies, the proud hippogriff Buckbeak and terrifying acromantula Aragog are certain to make an appearance. We can only hope Fluffy the three-headed gigantic dog gets a section of the ride.
Let’s not forget about Hagrid’s slightly reckless driving style. Combine his janky driving style with any number of Hagrid’s pets and you’re sure to have a memorable time.
Regardless of the creatures chosen, riding alongside Hagrid will be incredible. Riders can get a glimpse of what it feels like to be Harry Potter and we are here for it.
