... what the f*ck are they doing?
You didn't mention the best part of the commercial with all of the guests filming on rides with their phones!!! (Not allowed and Universal freaks out over this!!!)
The Universal Orlando Resort has sent us a press advisory announcing the opening date of the new themed coaster experience in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade, Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure! More information on the coaster will be released in the near future, but now you can start planning your visits to experience the new coaster!
Universal Orlando Resort today revealed the name and opening date for the highly-anticipated, new adventure coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter this summer.
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will open on June 13, 2019 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and feature the most highly-themed coaster yet. For the first time ever, guests will fly with Hagrid on a thrilling roller coaster ride that plunges into the path of some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.
Stay tuned - more details about the incredible new experience will be revealed in March.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
Interesting to see that the trains look a little similar (at least in concept art) to the 2007 Motorbike coaster that was built in Australia's Dreamland. Have these Motorbike/Sidecar trains been used on any other coaster since?
^I was wondering if the 'weird' trains would add more problems to the queue with people fighting over wanted the bike vs. the sidecar, but then I don't remember our group super caring in Australia so maybe it will work?

We also had ERT on it with only about 20-something people so I think everyone got to ride whatever they wanted. This coaster is also not quite as high of a profile as Potter either. I can tell you that riding in the side car and the bike are two very different ride experiences and Universal will probably just use that to get people to re-ride.
Yeah I've already accepted the fact that as long as I'm with Brit I'll never get the window seat on a plane and I'll never get the motorbike car on Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. It's a small price to pay
