Hagrid's Magical Motorbike Adventure to Feature Twists, Turns, and a Secret New Creature

This new attraction will place guests in a "real" forest with newly-planed trees.

As Universal previously confirmed, the setting for this new ride will be the Forbidden Forest, and in order to bring this setting to life, Universal will be building an actual forest with over 1,200 live trees being brought in to surround this new ride and keep all the magical creatures that will pop up during this attraction hidden from guests. Of course, there will also be indoor sections of this ride as well (as you can see in the concept art above), but most of the action seems like it will happen outdoors in this heavily forested area, which of course will be punctuated by animatronics and setpieces. And of course, this will be the first heavily-themed Harry Potter attraction that will not rely on screens, whcih is certainly an exciting development, and will hopefully set this attraction apart from other offerings in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

Cast and crew from the Harry Potter films will be involved

As you can see in the video above (which features Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films) Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will feature plenty of cast and crew from the Harry Potter films, who worked diligently behind the scenes to create an attraction that recalls the films and is highly immersive. Universal is already calling this the most "highly themed" attraction they have ever created, which is quite a big claim, but after seeing all the work that is going intoHagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, we're inclined to believe it! 

Though Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is still very heavily under construction, it looks like work is progressing quickly, as Universal has previously confirmed that this new attraction will open on June 13, 2019. Of course, this timing is not an accident, as Universal is probably trying to roll out its newest Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction as far in advance as possible of the now-confirmed August 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, even as prices continue to rise at Walt Disney World.
