POV Video Footage Of Soon-To-Open Harry Potter Roller Coaster Just Released

Universal Orlando Resort’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter is putting the finishing touches on its newest attraction, a roller coaster called Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

Universal has been periodically doling out photos and information about the attraction, which is set to open on June 13, but now they’ve released the best stuff yet – point of view video footage!

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be found in Universal’s Islands of Adventure park. It’s taking the space where Dragon Challenge (previously called Dueling Dragons) once stood.

From Universal Orlando Resort:

Join Hagrid™ and Fly into the Forbidden Forest.

Opening June 13, 2019
An epic new addition is coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. For the first time ever, fly deep into the wilds of the Forbidden Forest, beyond the grounds of Hogwarts™ castle. As you twist past towering trees, magical creatures and wondrous surprises surround you. One misstep could drop you into an endless pit of Devil’s Snare, or put you in the sights of a centaur’s bow. Anything can happen here.

With Hagrid™ as your guide, an all-new adventure is taking off as you board magical motorbikes to fly far into the dark forest. Hurl past impossible obstacles and dodge fierce beasts you’ve never seen before on a freewheeling coaster flight that will bring you close to some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.

Here are some of the tweets Universal put out:

But best of all is the video they released:

The news is making the rounds of local news outlets – and what’s cool is that each one is putting their own spin on it. Take a look:

I know better than to go to new theme park attractions during opening day, or even opening week or opening month…they’re just too crowded, especially when it’s smack dab in the middle of the busy summer season. But my fingers are crossed that they’ll soft open before June 13th and I’ll be able to check Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure before opening day. If not, I’m sure I’ll get onto it eventually. Living in Orlando does have its advantages… 😉
