Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

An Attraction in Islands of Adventure

Last updated: April 14, 2024

At a Glance

This family-friendly thrill ride, which replaced the Dragon Challenge twin roller coasters, is also a coaster, but a highly themed one without huge hills or upside-down loops. Instead, it focuses on thrilling launches through forested terrain during outdoor segments, as well as close encounters with animatronic creatures inside and between the ride’s indoor buildings.

After exploring the immersive queue, guests board 14-passenger trains inspired by Hagrid’s motorcycle and sidecar. Highlights of the adventure include a vertical tunnel that leads into a backwards helix, followed by a free-fall drop into darkness. Fantastic creatures and familiar figures from the Potter world make appearances during your experience, such as the flying Ford Anglia, Fluffy the three-headed dog, and old Hagrid himself (an impressively lifelike animatronic).

If you feel Universal's attractions are too dependent on video screens and simulated movement, Hagrid is here to answer your prayers with richly detailed scenery, spectacular practical effects, and accelerated airtime that's exhilarating, but not too extreme for tweens and parents to enjoy together. While the coaster's 50 mile-per-hour top speed might not sound terribly swift, it feels far faster when you’re navigating ground-hugging twists and turns through a grove of 1,200 real trees. Move over, Everest, and step aside, Seven Dwarfs: Hagrid’s has a near-flawless combination of theme and thrills, making it easily the best “story coaster” in Orlando, and a strong contender for the best ride at Universal Orlando.

The sidecar sits lower but closer to the effects, so every rider gets a good view. Hagrid’s ride does not currently offer Universal Express access, but it may in the future. When a single rider queue is available, it skips the preshow (which features Musion holograms of Hagrid and Arthur Weasley) and doesn’t save much time. Larger guests (over 40-inch waists) should test the sample seats before lining up and request the motorbike seat to enjoy a little more breathing room than the cramped sidecar.
