The new “Harry Potter”-themed coaster has drawn rave reviews, but has also seen waits as long as 10 hours along with numerous weather delays and on-ride malfunctions.
Making matters worse for guests, ride operation was suspended several times due to rain and lightning in the area and by 5 p.m., the ride was listed as “at capacity.”
The early reviews are in for Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and the new storytelling coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure is drawing almost universal acclaim.
Instead, the ride will be the first in Islands of Adventure to offer Universal’s Virtual Line reservation system, beginning the day after its June 13 opening.
Set inside the Forbidden Forest, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will see guests riding in either Hagrid’s signature motorbike or the sidecar, hitting top speeds of 50 miles per hour.
Witches and wizards may get the chance to ride Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure as soon as Memorial Day weekend, according to new rumors cited by Orlando Park Stop's Alicia Stella.
