Wait times are now posting so it must be open now!
We are hearing from a friend that Universal Orlando has Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure Coaster has been closed for awhile today due to the cold temperatures in Orlando.
Not sure exactly why it’s down, whether it is the weather, or some technical issue.
I went out to The Laughing Place, because they have an attraction wait time feature.
It is showing as being closed.
Right now it’s about 52°F in Orlando.
Yesterday guests said that The Rise of the Resistance attraction has a delayed opening for seven hours at Walt Disney World, and some speculated it was due to the cold. Others pointed out that it was colder today, yet Rise of the Resistance was open this morning.
Someone was asking about it on Twitter as well:
Please continue to monitor our MobileApp for updates.

By Universal Orlando’s reply it sounds like it could open back up, but they just vaguely said to watch the app.
If you are currently waiting to ride the attraction make sure to check the app because it might open up later. Universal Orlando pretty much gave a non-answer so it’s a maybe.
What do you think? Comment and let us know.
