    Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure is now open. This thread is for general discussion of the attraction. For large photo updates and to post reviews visit the Reviews & Media thread.

    NOTE: While we ask for posters not to spoil the attraction this thread naturally will contain some spoilers. Consider this your last warning.

    “For the first time ever, join Hagrid as you fly far beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle on a thrilling roller coaster ride that plunges into the paths of some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.

    It begins when you join Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures class and board magical motorbikes specially designed to make you feel the freedom of flight. For your journey you can either ride the motorcycle or board the adjacent sidecar, providing two unique experiences. For the first time, you will soar through the Forbidden Forest and come face-to-face with some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures… but as often the case with Hagrid, things don’t go as planned.”

    Walt Disney is pointing out where to go on the 13th. (Ironically, Bill Davis is the president of Universal Orlando Resort)

    I'll ask in this thread, just in case. Sorry for a repeat post that's semi-off topic.

    Anyone certain that Royal Pacific's side entrance is a viable option for 6:30 am on Thursday?

    First time we’ve seen a train go by in nearly 3 hours.

    Since the old thread was closed, I'll just leave this comment here:

    End of an era.

    I haven’t yet seen a post yet explaining what the scene justification is for the drop track. Is there any audio of someone making it happen?

    No no, I know that scene in the movie. I am wondering if the scene on the ride has any audio of say Hagrid telling you to relax or something. How would non-potter fans know what the scene and plant is otherwise....

    That's quite a crowd. Ops nightmare as well -- the more people come and the bigger the crowd gets, the more people get attracted.

    I feel like management has to be in some way considering a soft opening considering the crowd built up.
