Universal Orlando debuts new Harry Potter ride
A new ride opens Thursday at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, and riders are sure to have a magical experience.
On Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, riders board magical motorbikes with one rider on the motorcycle, the other in an adjacent sidecar, and fly through the Forbidden Forest in search of rare magical creatures.
The ride has seven total launches meaning lots of thrills.
It will be the first U.S. coaster to feature a free-fall vertical drop totaling 17 feet.
It's also the longest roller coast in Florida, nearly a mile in length.
Wait times have peaked at 10 hours for the park's newest ride
You also can't get to the front of the line before anyone else, because the park's Express Pass is not yet accepted on the ride.
