Flight of the Hippogriff is a family roller coaster located at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida, USA. The ride's original name was Flying Unicorn until 2010 when it was renamed and re-themed.

The train is designed to look like a hippogriff, a creature with the head of an eagle and the body of a horse.
