4 Low-Key Changes Happening at Universal You Might Have Missed

3. Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure gets another operational update

Though Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure has been open for over a full month, it looks like the technical issues that have plagued this attraction since its grand opening are not going away any time soon. A few weeks ago Universal announced that they would start opening this attraction at midday, every day, and would be using the morning hours to perform maintenance on the ride to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible for as long as possible before they close the ride for capacity. 

However, Universal switched gears last week, and said that from this point on they will be opening the ride in the morning, but shutting it down early before the park closes to perform routine maintenance. And though the timing has changed, our advice to those who are visiting this park and want to experience this attraction remains the same: get there early

4. New Jurassic Park - Lost Continent bypass bridge now open

Islands of Adventure has been flooded with guests trying to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade this summer attempting to ride Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, which has led to plenty of congestion and traffic issues around this area of the park. However, the good news is that Universal has completed work on a new bypass bridge that allows guests to navigate the park without entering The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade. The bridge also has high walls hiding the construction of the new, unannounced Jurassic World roller coaster that is currently being built in the Jurassic Park area of Islands of Adventure.
