We’re very close to opening the highly-anticipated Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Soon, you’ll be able to experience the first-ever story coaster as you join Hagrid on a thrilling journey to the Forbidden Forest to discover magical creatures.

There’s tremendous excitement and anticipation surrounding the opening of this new adventure. For that reason, we anticipate high demand for our new attraction and there may be times when Virtual Line is available. We encourage everyone to download the Official Universal Orlando Resort App in advance to access our Virtual Line system once on-site in our parks. When Virtual Line is not being used, a traditional standby queue will be available.  Below are some tips to maximize your day:

  • If You Plan to Join Us on Opening Day, June 13: Universal’s Islands of Adventure may open earlier than scheduled so that you can begin queueing for the new experience. We’ll have dedicated team members stationed throughout the line to assist you and answer any questions you have.

And be sure to have your camera ready! You never know who you might see…

  • Virtual Line: Beginning June 14, there may be times when our team members ask you to join the Virtual Line on The Official Universal Orlando Resort App to experience Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. This will allow you to enjoy other attractions in the park until it’s your time to join the queue. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Prior to your arrival, download The Official Universal Orlando Resort App

Step 2: Once you’re in Islands of Adventure, open the app and tap the icon for Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. From there, select how many people are in your party, and then select a return time to join the queue. Please note that you have to be in the park in order to secure a return time.

Step 3: Enjoy the other amazing experiences across Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios until your return time arrives.

Step 4: Upon your return time, head to the designated attraction entrance, where you will wait for your ride. The remainder of your wait time will be posted at the entrance when you arrive. All you have to do is scan your Virtual Line pass on your mobile device, and then you’re ready to join the queue.

We look forward to seeing you out there!

    I HATE your virtual queue! I go to Universal because FP+ sucks, don’t turn your park into another crappy system that makes we not want to go anymore!
    Stop with the virtual, very really annoying, queue!

    • Thank you for your feedback, David, and I apologize that you feel this way. I will make sure this is forwarded to our Guest Services Team, so they can document your concerns.

    How early will parking be open on June 13th so that people can queue up at Islands of Adventure for the new ride?
