New Harry Potter ride in Orlando: People are waiting hours to ride Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Expecto-You’re-Gonna-Waitum!

There’s a new ride at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando and it seems that people are excited.

They’re so excited that wait times are at around five hours to ride the new rollercoaster, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

The ride, which opened today (June 13) takes park guests into the “wilds of the Forbidden Forest, beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle,” according to Universal. The ride is themed after Hagrid’s motorbike which appears in all of the Harry Potter films.

For the uninitiated, Rubeus Hagrid was a once-upon-a-time student at Hogwarts who eventually became a professor. Readers and viewers of “Harry Potter” first meet the half-giant wizard as something of a caretaker for Harry.

Motorbike Adventure is now the longest coaster in Florida, measuring in at almost a mile with speeds of up to 50 mph.

For the time being, the new attraction will not be accepting Universal Express Passes, which cut down on wait times for park guests, much like the FastPass that Disney offers.

When the park opened at 9 a.m., the wait for the ride instantly jumped to 600 minutes…or 10 hours.
