Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure – Attraction Spotlight

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is NOW OPEN at Universal Orlando Resort and this epic new addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been named, AMAZING! In our latest blog post, we are talking about why you need to be mega excited for this new park addition.

Journey beyond the grounds of Hogwarts Castle

On this exciting storytelling ride, you will get to venture to the edge of the Forbidden Forest through ruins which have been abandoned for centuries and here, you will begin your Care of Magical Creatures class with Hagrid! The ruins have been designed in collaboration with the Harry Potter films’ Production Designer Stuart Craig and Arts Director Alan Gilmore and they will blow you away. You will see dragon eggs on the verge of hatching as well as a makeshift nursey Hagrid designed for his Blast-Ended Skrewts. Riders will also get to enjoy a pre-show projection which uses digital technology to bring Arthur Weasley, Hagrid and his loyal dog fang to life. How exciting!

Come face to face with Hagrid

One of the most hyped features of this immersive coaster experience, is the opportunity of coming face to face with Hagrid. Hagrid has been brought to life using Universal Orlando’s most advanced and realistic animated figure, which has been designed to showcase 24 different body actions and facial expressions. Building on this, a huge level of detail has gone into Hagrid’s appearance ensuring that even minor features such as individual strands of hair are correctly placed. Designers also worked with Robbie Coltrane, the actor who played Hagrid, to create digital scans of his teeth for the figure. Hagrid’s outfit was then designed by the team who created his on screen attire for the movies and the final figure will stand at 7 feet 6 inches tall, which is his height in the movies.
