You all know how much I love Universal Orlando. But sadly its a park that is in dire need of some new rides and a refresh. The first phase of my desire has mysteriously materialized in the brand new Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure set to premiere this June! Mark your calendars because Draco Malfoy himself, Tom Felton will be on hand Tuesday, March 12th to unveil the long awaited adventure. The ride officially opens June 13, 2019.
In addition to the new Hagrid ride, now that Christmas is over and no need for a Christmas holiday show, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is also getting a brand new light show called Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle. Guests will get a sneak peak at the new show April 11 and 12th and officially opens to the public on April 13th. Tickets are on sale now.
The event’s main attraction is an exclusive first-look at the all-new “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” projection display that brings to light an exciting new dimension of sorcery within “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.” A mesmerizing pageantry of light, music and special effects will unleash the darkest creatures and villains from the Wizarding World, including the powerful Dark wizard Lord Voldemort.
Guests will be challenged to summon their inner strength and bravery in the face of the all-consuming Dark Arts as some of the awe-inspiring moments and creatures inspired by the films come to life within the majestic light display accompanied by an atmospheric musical score created by John Williams.
