Bees Force Closure of Universal Orlando’s Hagrid Coaster
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, Universal Orlando’s newest coaster, has encountered another problem: bees.
The coaster closed Wednesday afternoon because hundreds, possibly thousands, of bees were found near the attraction.
The attraction reopened Wednesday evening.
Universal didn’t say what it was doing to clear the bees, which have reportedly plagued the coaster since at least September 25.
The bee problem is the latest to hit the coaster, which experienced bouts of technical issues in the days following its grand opening.
Hagrid’s is Universal’s most advanced coasters, taking riders through the Forbidden Forest at speeds of up to 50 mph. The ride features seven launches, animatronics, and a 17-foot vertical drop.
