Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Opening Day Reviews Are In

Photography by: Universal Orlando Resort
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has cause to celebrate even more so than usual today: Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is finally open and fans are beyond satisfied with how Universal Orlando Resort's latest attraction turned out.

Anticipation hit an all-time high after several members of the Harry Potter cast were spotted around the park and appeared to commemorate the ride's opening. Fans lined up at Islands of Adventure, where Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade is located, to get first dibs on the new rollercoaster.

Devoted thrill seekers and Potterheads started to queue as early as 5am. For the first few hundred lucky and well-prepared park guests, they were first to ride the coaster after the park opened to the public at 9am. For others, the wait extended up to ten hours as thousands lined up around the park. With most of the latest expansion set outside, inclement weather such as thunderstorms throughout the day forced the ride to temporarily close before reopening. Universal Orlando Resort tried to make sure their guests were taken care of as much as possible handing out free water and bringing out characters to entertain.

Despite the heat, rain, and long lines, fans reactions are absolutely magical. By interacting with familiar and new magical creatures as well as the Hogwarts groundskeeper, the attraction is everything fans have come to expect and more. Here are some of the best reactions so far from across social media:

Universal Orlando Resort featured a thread of fan reactions live at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade:
Hogwarts would not be the same without Hagrid, and it looks like rollercoasters will not be the same after Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.
