New Details Revealed for Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Ah, the Forbidden Forest. Sprawling beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle. It’s a place full of mystery, adventure It’s a place full of mystery, adventure and magical creatures. And now, it’s your next destination at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. ♪♫♪ This experience will be a new, epic addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Now it started when you were able to set foot in Hogsmeade. There, you enjoyed magical experiences you’d only ever seen in the movies, like sipping an actual frosted Butterbeer and walking the corridors of Hogwarts castle. Then you were able to board the Hogwarts Express and journey between Hogsmeade and King’s Cross station in London. And finally, you got to step through the brick archway into Diagon Alley. There you explored its many wonders, including a visit to the deepest, darkest vaults of Gringotts Bank. And starting this summer a new, epic adventure from the Wizarding World will come to life. That’s when you will be able to journey into the Forbidden Forest, on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Hold tight, Harry. Now, the Forbidden Forest is one of the most dangerous places on the Hogwarts grounds and that’s saying quite a bit. But, there was one person who always seemed to feel right at home here… Hagrid! As a Hogwarts gamekeeper with a soft spot for creatures of all kinds, Hagrid is the perfect guide for you on this thrilling new journey. I’ve got a real treat for you today, a great lesson. Follow me! And there is no one better to help curate this experience than Alan Gilmore. Alan worked on the Harry Potter films and has been instrumental in bringing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to life. Alan my dear friend, how are you? Tom, good to see you, fancy meeting you here! Good to see you mate, good to see you. I know you’ve been involved with the Harry Potter films and the theme parks over the years. How on earth do you even begin to bring the Forbidden Forest to life? Well, you can’t have an adventure with Hagrid through the Forbidden Forest, without a forest. So we planted more than 1,000 live trees to bring this fantastical forest to life. Tom: Single-handedly, I see. Alan: All by myself. Tom: That is incredible. Now, I know we’re all dying to know about what exactly Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is going to be about. Surely, this is the man that could tell us all. Alan: Well first, you’ll join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class, where you’ll board enchanted motorbikes just like Hagrid’s. Tom: Fantastic. Wait, sorry. We’re on an actual motorbike? Absolutely! This is unlike any ride vehicle you’ve ever been on before. It’s specially designed to make you feel the freedom of flight. Your experience will be different, depending on if you’re on the motorbike, or in the side car. Wait, so I get to ride it twice, one on the left, one on the right? At least twice. Your motorbike will fly deep into the wilds of the Forbidden Forest Taking you on a twisting roller-coaster rise to discover the rarest, magical creatures But as is often the case of Hagrid, things don’t go quite as well as planned. Tom: Oh, yes, I can speak from firsthand experience. You’ll twist turn and rush forwards and backwards at speeds up to 50 miles per hour Tom: 50 miles an hour? Alan: It’s really fast. As you fly beyond the grounds of Hogwarts. Once we’re on board this, what sort of magical creatures are we expecting to see? Alan: Well you’ll see Fluffy. You’ll see Cornish Pixies, causing their mayhem as they do. Troublesome little guys. We pass about the centaurs. And then very menacing in the forest, we have the devil’s snare. It’s really trying to grab you. And many more wondrous surprises, including an encounter with a creature that has never been featured in the films, that I can’t tell you about just yet. I’ve got to save a few surprises for later, don’t I? You tease. You tease. I love it. I try. Alan, you’ve got me excited. Hagrid is a huge fan-favorite, so we knew we had to make it unlike any other experience in the whole world. It features the most amazing new environments, never seen before, highest levels of storytelling and the best use of technology throughout. I promise you, it’ll be the most highly themed, immersive coaster experience ever created. Well that says a lot, because this place has been raising the bar every year, it seems. You’ve got me bloody excited. When can we take this bad boy for a spin? Well, you can experience Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, June 13th at Universal Orlando Resort. Yeah, but Alan, you and I have been friends for a while now. I was looking for a little sneak peek. Any chance? Okay, just a little peek. All right, but no telling all of your Slytherin buddies, okay? I promise nothing. Let’s do it. Good, man, haha. To the Forbidden Forest! ♪♫♪

  1. Draco! One of the few cast members who actually appears for videos and things that deal with Harry Potter.

  2. Wow Tom Felton looks so different now from when we all saw him in The Philosophers Stone!! I mean i know time has advanced since then but still….

  3. 2:26 Apparently motorbike rollercoasters don't exist? Hell, Disney did this in China a few years ago.

    Also, how do the sidecars work? Are they similar to the vehicles on Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom? If so, I worry that the ride won't be very comfortable for people on the right.

  4. I work in Islands of Adventure and I am so excited for this. We see the construction going on can’t wait to ride it! Hopefully some of the cast will be there opening day!

  5. It's a skrewt, isn't it? The never-before filmed creature is gonna be the Skrewts cut out of Goblet of Fire, isn't it?

  6. Does anyone know the name of the commercial, or song, that they play on the universal studios channel in the onsite hotels that starts off, "Today is going to be a good day…"? I'm trying to surprise my husband with an extra trip to Universal for his birthday, and I want to play this at home the day before we leave. I couldn't find this commercial jingle anywhere, and it's something that reminds us of Universal Studios.Any help would be very appreciated!!!!! Thanks in advance…

  7. Ahhhh why do I have to live in Canada and ahhhh why is our exchange rate terrible! Makes it so expensive to travel to the USA now a days!!

  8. I've watched all the videos and read the articles. As far as safety features go, I can easily see how a person in the sidecar would be harnessed in. But what about the person on the motorbike? I wonder what there is to keep someone from falling off? There's no seatbelts on a motorcycle. I've yet to see any pictures of a harnessing system.

  9. I just missed this ride if only I waited a month. I wonder if you can sleep in Hagrids hut. I wonder if Fang will be there. I wonder if they’ll make a Harry Potter Hotel where you go to the dining area and it full to the brim with food, just like the movie!

  10. HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tom Felton, I vow to remember your real name to your face from this point forward, well done!!!

  11. I went there 2 weeks ago to go on this ride And waited hours and hours for nothing because the ride got delayed and delayed so now we are going on the 28th and hopefully we get to step foot on the head with a motorbike adventure ride for my birthday and maybe my birthday wish will come true and I get to go on it
