Elements

Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is an LSM launch coaster from Intamin. It features 7 launches (a world record), a spike that sends riders backwards, four tunnels and a 17 foot vertical drop track, although riders only experience after going backwards into the building. Hagrid is heard on the speakers of the trains, along with on-board audio.

Ride experience

When the train exits the building, riders will hear Hagrid on the speakers saying "Uh, don't mind the thestrals. Clever and useful they are." After a right turn, the train launches from 0 to 20 mph in 1.2 seconds. The riders approach an S-curve. Hagrid will then say "Off you go, we'll meet you at the exit of the Forbidden Forest!" The train makes a right turn and launches from 22 mph to 30 mph in 1.5 seconds. The riders pass through a tunnel and an airtime hill. Hagrid then says "We'll let you for service in the grand finale. Don't know what they're doing." The train hits the brakes and goes into Hagrid's Hut. Inside, Hagrid is seen, along with a Blast-Ended Skrewt. Hagrid then says "Oh bad! There's no need for that! Just an awkward day! You should keep your head back! We’ll pick this up later!" After exiting Hagrid's Hut, the train makes a right turn and launches from 0 to 32 mph in 3.5 seconds up a hill. At the top, riders dive down into a tunnel and go through several curves. Following this, the train then launches from 27 mph to 35 mph in 2.3 seconds. Hagrid will then say "Ganon, dorables!" The train makes a right turn and passes through airtime hills. Then, Hagrid will say "Are there more than one bad brains? I didn't think they take all you did in The Forbidden Forest. Just hang on!" Riders make a right turn and hit the block brake. Fluffy can be found to the left of the block brake eating a bone. Hagrid will say "Oh, and don't mind Fluffy. His barks are worse than his bite." Riders will then hear Fluffy’s barks and the train approaches the switch track by making a left turn, and then launches from 21 mph to 41 mph in 2.5 seconds. The riders will see the car with Cornish Pixies and the Cornish Pixie squeak sound can be heard. Hagrid on speakers then says "Now, don't panic by your just own!" The train enters a foggy tunnel, then climbs a 70° vertical rollback. Hagrid will say "Looks like we lost power!" Riders fall backwards and Hagrid will say "I got you, don't worry! You're powerful!" The train launches from 37 mph to 44 mph in 1.7 seconds, then passes through a tunnel and a helix. Hagrid on speakers will say "Sorry, never was great shakes at magic." The riders hit the brakes and head into a building with a nighttime scenery and centaurs. Hagrid will say "Ooh, crikey! You’re tangled in Devil's Snare! Repeat after me; lumos solem!" After strobing effects show tentacles, a vertical drop track plunges the train 17 feet. Hagrid will then say "Phew! That was close! Now, we just need to? Oh, you found my missing skrewts. Let me get out of here before you get busted!" Fog effects will appear and the train launches out of the building from 0 to 50 mph in 4.0 seconds. Hagrid will then say "Now, get those purple buttons! Hold on! Dragon fliers everywhere!" The train makes a left bank turn and then hits the final brake run. A unicorn can be seen on the left side before the train returns to the station.
