Potter Coaster Announced! Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Opening June 13, 2019

We've seen the arial photos. We've seen Alicia's leaks. We've speculated and discussed this ride to death. Finally we have the name and official concept art to the Potter coaster.

Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure coaster is an innovative, family thrill ride that combines a launched coaster like Cheetah Hunt, the scenery of Big Thunder Mountain, a wild indoor drop like Tower of Terror and Verbolten, and audio animatronic figures like Pirates of the Caribbean. Guests will follow Hagrid as we see the magical creatures we've read and seen in the films.

Hagrid's Care of Magical Creatures coaster will open June 13, 2019 at Universal's Islands of Adventure.
