Throughout the course of this week, Universal Orlando is revealing a new magical creature each day that will be featured in the newest ride to join the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is opening in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure on June 13th. This highly immersive ride will take muggles and wizards alike on a thrilling journey with Hagrid through the Forbidden Forest where you are sure to encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.
So far this week, we have learned that Fluffy the three-headed dog (from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) and those pesky Cornish Pixies will be making their debut in Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. Today, we learned of another new “creature” that will be a part of the ride- Devil’s Snare.
Devil’s Snare isn’t a true creature, but it is a highly dangerous plant from the wizarding world. This seemingly innocuous plant frequently squeezes and strangles its unsuspecting victims when they touch this unruly plant’s vines. It is important to keep in mind that Devil’s Snare thrives in dark and damp environments, and has a strong dislike of light and fire. This may serve as useful knowledge during your journey into the forest!
Facing the Devil’s Snare will be one of the many challenges you will face in Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. Remember to remain calm if you find yourself ensnared in a thicket of this devilish plant. If you struggle, you may find yourself entangled in hundreds of its vines.
Fun Fact: We first encountered Devil’s Snare in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone when ever-wise Hermione helped her friends escape its dangerous clutches.
New magical creatures will be revealed each day this week until April 19th to prepare you for your journey. Stay tuned tomorrow to learn the next magical creature we will meet in the Forbidden Forest!
