Also, it's rumoured that the name for this coaster will be Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure (Or it could be shorted to just simply Hagrid’s Magical Creatures).

Another load of aerial images. With a few interesting notes to point out.

Firstly in the images, you can see the train, with what looks like a show element placed next to it:

That's all from another massive update.

NEW DETAILS REVEALED FOR HAGRID’S MAGICAL CREATURES MOTORBIKE ADVENTURE

An Epic New Adventure is coming June 13, 2019!

Last month, we announced that Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is opening on June 13, 2019 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. We are excited to share with you more details on this epic new addition – along with two special guests. Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, and Alan Gilmore, Art Director for the Harry Potter films, are here to share more details about the new adventure:



THE EXPERIENCE:

It begins when you join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make you feel the freedom of flight. For your journey you can either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar, providing two unique experiences. For the first time, you will soar through the Forbidden Forest and come face-to-face with some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures… but as often the case with Hagrid, things don’t go as planned.

This new experience combines a new level of storytelling and innovative coaster technology with rich environments and sets – including an actual forest with 1,200 live trees!

Experience a freewheeling coaster flight where you’ll twist, turn and rush forward – and backward – at speeds of up to 50 mph into the dark forest

Encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures, such as a majestic Centaur; a swarm of mischievous Cornish Pixies; Fluffy the three-headed dog; and even one that’s never been seen in the films

Hurl past challenging obstacles, drop into an endless pit of Devil’s Snare and so much more …while encountering a few surprises along the way

Who’s excited for June 13?! Stay tuned to the blog or sign up for email updates—more details will be released in the coming months.
