Even though it will be opening sometime this year, there has been very little official information released on the new roller coaster being built at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter inside of Universal’s Islands of Adventure. While I have previously published plenty of rumors and homemade track layouts, today I have what I believe to be an actual piece of concept art for the new attraction.
Provided to me by an anonymous source, the image appears to be a rendering of what the final ride and surrounding area will look like once completed. The concept matches what we’ve seen in aerial photos from @bioreconstruct.
There have been a lot of rumored names floating around on the internet, especially in recent days. The one I believe to be the accurate name for the new coaster is “Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.” However, there is now talk of that name being shortened to simply “Hagrid’s Magical Creatures.” (I would have preferred Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure personally.) I’m reminded of last year when the new “Universal’s Cinematic Celebration” show lost its “Epic Cinema Under the Stars” subtitle at the last minute.
