Flight of the Hippogriff

Flight of the Hippogriff

An Attraction in Islands of Adventure

Last updated: May 20, 2024

At a Glance
Below and to the right of Hogwarts Castle, next to Hagrid’s Hut, Flight of the Hippogriff is short and sweet but not worth much of a wait. An outdoor, elevated coaster designed for children old enough to know about Harry Potter but not yet tall enough to ride Forbidden Journey, ride affords excellent views of the area within Wizarding World and of Hogwarts. The theming is also very good, considering this isn't a major attraction and was formerly something else (Flying Unicorn when this area was still part of the Lost Continent). As a children's coaster only slightly taller and longer than Woody Woodpecker's in USF, there are no loops, inversions or rolls: it's just one big hill and some mild turns, and almost half of the one-minute ride time is spent going up the lift hill. Unfortunately, Orlando’s Hippogriff has become increasing rough in recent years, and is not as pleasant to ride as the identically named coaster at Universal Studios Hollywood.

For fans of Harry Potter there are two gorgeous items in this attraction that you will want to see. The first is a faithful recreation of Hagrid's hut in the queue (complete with the sound of Fang howling) while the second is an incredible animatronic of Buckbeak that you pass by while on the ride. Remember, that when muggles encounter Hippogriffs like Buckbeak, proper etiquette must always be maintained to avoid any danger. Hippogriffs are extremely proud creatures and must be showed the proper respect by bowing to them, and waiting for them to bow in return.
