All week the Universal Orlando Resort is giving guests a first-ever look at the magical creatures they’ll encounter inside the most highly themed, immersive coaster experience yet – Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure when it opens on June 13th at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
#ICYMI: Check out yesterday’s Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure creatures feature!
Today’s Magical Creature reveal features…Cornish Pixies!
Cornish pixies are electric blue tricksters who love to create mischief – often at the expense of others. These mischievous creatures fly, and have also been known to seize unwary humans by the ears and deposit them at the tops of tall trees and buildings – poor Neville Longbottom…
In Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, you’ll see these troublesome creatures wreaking havoc on an infamous blue car… and in places you may not expect.
They’re about 13 inches tall and you’ll find more than 20 pixies throughout your adventure. Happy hunting!
Here are some Fun Facts that the Universal Orlando Blog shared about Cornish Pixies.
