Universal Orlando’s magical creature preview ends today with a new creature that you may not have seen before, but if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’ll know all about them. Blast ended skrewts have been around in the Harry Potter books since Goblet of Fire and made for a sticky situation when Harry and Cedric were winding their way through the labyrinth. Now they’re going to make for a heated escape as you journey through Hagrids new coaster.
Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure will be the first place that fans will be able to see the fierce and fiery Blast Ended Skrewts, besides reading about them in the books. The skrewts are a cross between Fire Crabs and Manticores, and smell like rotting fish. Fire will blast from their “blast ends” so be careful not to get too close. The creatures are just one if many that we expect to see on the new ride.
The new coaster will open on June 13th at Islands of Adventure.
