Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is just a few weeks from making its magical debut at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, in Universal’s Islands of Adventure park and to help drum up excitement, Universal has offered a POV video of the new attraction in action!
While the new video doesn’t show such of the exciting new visuals (including the massive new Hagrid animated figure or the various creatures that will come to life during the journey) we do get a sense for the massive scale of the new coaster which winds in and out of ancient ruins near Hogwart’s in a 1,200-tree forest.
The “story coaster” will feature innovative technology that is integrated so seamlessly into the surrounding environments, guests won’t know what to expect next. Along the way, they’ll experience thrills they’ve never felt on a coaster before, including:
- The most launches of any roller coaster in the world – with 7 total launches
- Unexpectedly dropping nearly 17 feet on the first coaster in the U.S. to feature a free-fall vertical drop
- Being catapulted 65 feet in the air at a more than 70 degree angle – and then immediately dropping backward in one movement
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will also be the longest roller coaster in Florida, measuring nearly a mile in length (5,053 feet).
