Photo: A. BeemerSince its opening on Thursday last week, the new coaster in the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” – “Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure” (cf. EAP News f. Feb 22nd, 2019) – has been drawing crowds to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando.

The “newcomer” to the magical world of wizards invites guests to an adventurous flight on Hagrid’s motorbike through the “Forbidden Forest” and enthuses with an all-new ride experience: The new coaster from Intamin features a total of seven launches, setting a new record. A special highlight of the track layout is a vertical drop element for a free fall of over five meters. The total track length of over 1.5 kilometers makes the attraction the currently longest rollercoaster in Florida. In the queuing area, visitors encounter familiar characters of the Harry Potter universe, the pre-show features digital projections and a number of special effects.
