One person mounts the bike, while another enjoys the relative safety and comfort of the sidecar. Though if you’ve seen the bike in action on the big screen, you know neither is really more safe than the other. Your best bet would be to keep your wand on-hand in case of emergency, and you know, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times. This design is meant to make passengers “feel the freedom of flight” as the roller coaster twist, turns, and surges forward and backward. No need to be afraid. If Harry can survive a ride in the contraption at the speeds he did, you’ll make it through a brief cruise at 50 miles per hour.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is way more than a quick, high-speed ride, though. it’s a chance for Harry Potter nerds to fully indulge in their dreams of being a Hogwarts witch or wizard. Seriously. Before getting on the roller coaster, riders will have to go through Hagrid’s Magical Care of Creatures class. The ride will then take passengers through the Forbidden Forest, which is really just a wooded area the park created by planting a bunch of trees. Imagination is key here, people.
It’ll come in handy as passengers are immersed in faux danger and high drama from the Harry Potter films. As the roller coaster whips through the park, riders will confront cornish pixies, a centaur, and even Fluffy the three-headed dog -- none of which are currently available at any other attraction inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. They’ll also come face-to-face with Devil’s Snare and other nightmarish creatures from the Harry Potter films that haven’t been revealed just yet. They can’t give away all the magic before the ride opens.
Maaaaybe start lining up now, folks.
