Islands of Adventure Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade Flight of the Hippogriff

Not anyone can walk right up to a Hippogriff and expect to have a pleasant interaction with it the first time. That is why Flight of the Hippogriff allows you to train on wicker Hippogriffs before you even attempt to ride the real thing. Flight of the Hippogriff is a family style roller coaster that would be perfect for younger thrill seekers and those who don’t enjoy intense roller coasters.

Flight of the Hippogriff was originally The Flying Unicorn in The Lost Continent before the Wizarding World took over. No aspects of the ride changed at all except for the theming. The trains were converted into wicker Hippogriffs and Hagrid’s Hut was placed near the ride track along with an animatronic Hippogriff that bows to all those heading up the lift hill. Flight of the Hippogriff may not be the most thrilling ride in Islands of Adventure, but one of the best views of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts is at the top of its lift hill.
