The coaster trains are now on track at Universal Orlando's new Harry Potter coaster. Who's ready for a ride on Hagrid's motorbike?
Twitter user @bioreconstruct, who specializes in aerial photography of Orlando-area theme parks and attractions, has posted from fresh images of the Harry Potter coaster construction site at Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. In the images, we can see the coaster train, covered by white plastic.

Despite the covering, zooming in on the train image shows an outline that looks a lot like a series of motorbikes, with sidecars attached. Remember this from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?
Universal Orlando's new Harry Potter coaster ride replaces Dragon Challenge in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure. The ride will feature a drop track and will reverse direction at one point on course, and will feature several themed show elements during its journey through the Forbidden Forest. It will open sometime in 2019. (Best guess? Summer.)
Universal still hasn't announced a name, an opening date, or confirmed any of the elements for the attraction, but its teaser campaign promised a reveal of at least some of that information in "early 2019."Tweet
