I love Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, and I have been a huge fan of what they’ve done with the Harry Potter property. I was sad that they tore down the Dueling Dragons inverted rollercoaster but they seem to be replacing it with something pretty cool.
The new ride will be based on an adventure with Hagrid and trains based on his motorbike. It will be called Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure and is a roller coaster with special effects. I only hope it’s more exciting than Escape From Gringott’s. Gringott’s is fun, but I need more adrenaline!
Universal Orland released some photos of some of the creatures that will be seen on the ride.
First up is a pixie. These creatures cause havoc, much like gremlins in the movie Gremlins, and have a very funny scene in The Chamber of Secrets. I wonder if these creatures will be the cause of the ride going wrong.
Next, we have the Devil’s Snare vines that gave Harry, Hermoine, and Ron trouble in the first film. I wonder if there will be any physical Snare or if this will be a digital effect.
Centaurs are a classic fantasy creature and they played a part in a few of the movies. This is a creature I would like to see as an animatronic. Especially if it’s as good as the one of Hondo Ohnaka at Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge.
Lastly, we are being gifted a brand new creature never seen before, the Blast-Ended Skrewt. This creature looks like an odd scorpion and would fit in well in a Pokèmon game.
This new ride opens on June 13th of this year.
