    I came up with “Hagrid’s Care of Magical Creatures Coaster” 245 days ago and think it’s better than what UC ended up with. Lol

    Sounds like a meet n greet if you leave out the coaster part

    “Care of Magical Creatures” is the class Hagrid teaches at Hogwarts. I feel like including “coaster” tells you more about the ride than “motorbike adventure.”

    Excluding the word coaster is probably because of J.K. Rowling. Roller coasters don't exist in that part of the world. The same reason why Gringotts and Flight of the Hippogriff don't have coaster in the name.

    I've just realised that once this opens, 60% of the rides in WWOHP will be coasters.

    Yeah coaster shouldn’t be in the name. Doesn’t provide theme.

    It's a flying motorbike. Why would Hogwarts/Hogsmeade have a roller coaster?

    Makes sense! Then I wish they would’ve just left out “Magical Creatures.” It’s such a mouthful.

    Why is there an Ollivander’s in Hogsmeade? Why is Hogsmeade so close to Hogwarts? Why is there a giant building protruding behind Hogwarts? Why is there a junior roller coaster in front of Hogwarts? Why isn’t the castle and queue set up like it is in the books and movies? Why is Harry not playing seeker for Gryffindor in the Quidditch match on FJ? I don’t see a huge issue with acknowledging that you’re in a theme park version of Harry Potter and are going to be riding a rollercoaster. You can literally see the track. Lol

    If they can launch a train ever 22 seconds that should get them close to 2,100 pph.

    I realised this last week. I was just sitting looking at an online map and thought "This entire land is almost all coasters"lol

    Question. Is this the "Forbidden Forrest" everyone wanted? Or is this Hagrids ride geared towards something different? (Unfamiliar with Harry Potter)

    I can't wait to see an aerial video of it running. With all the different trains going everywhere at once.

    Thank you for using logic. While most people accept that it's all part of the theme park experience, there are others than just can't. They're an extreme minority, thankfully.

    I'm pumped that they decided to finally let the cat out of the bag, but we definitely all should agree on the unofficial acronym now, because I ain't typing HMCMA every time :lol:

    Well logically I accept it's a themepark but understand why calling it a coaster doesn't fit the theme.

    No ones saying this isn’t in a theme park. We’re saying JK is saying this isn’t a theme park. The ride names make no mention of being rides. Adding the word coaster goes against every other name.

    I've just been assuming all this time, but is there going to be some sort of scene in the long straightaway through the ruins at the end, before the goodbye moment while actually in the abbey? @Alicia
