    Maybe he’s just Tom Felton’s good friend and wanted to go with him to experience the ride based on films they were in?

    Orlando Informer just printed their review and it's a complete love of the ride. Here's some excerpts:..."We'll just go ahead and say it- Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is our favorite ride at Universal Orlando Resort, hands down. It has the fun and frenetic feeling of the first flagship Harry Potter ride Forbidden Journey, along with the more involved story of the second one, Escape from Gingotts, providing some pretty immersive-not to mention fun, moments along the way. When you wrap it in the package of 1,200 real, live trees and a unique ride vehicle that provides multiple experiences, you have a home run that's hard to beat......Hagrid is really, really, impressive.....Hagrid demands re-rides instantly.....and we can't wait to do it all over again. And again. And again".

    Their faces say it all... :grin::exclap:


    Also, I don't think this has been posted here yet, so here's a look at the ceiling magic at the loading platform:




    And just in case it wasn't obvious... night time is the best time to ride Hagrid (hey-oh! lol)

    Night time rides on Hagrid and the Hogwart's night projection shows, Oh My :jawdrop:. There's going to be some crowded night streets in Hogsmeade, like forever. :party:

    The pre-show and the room itself was a very similar style to Gringotts, with a couple additions....
