Flight of the Hippogriff is a roller coaster found in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Island of Adventures. Hagrid is going to teach young wizards how to fly a Hippogriff by using these fake replicas of the creature. Walking through the queue line as it weaves through Hogwarts Grounds, young wizards will pass by Hagrid’s Hut and the Forest that leads into an open canopy where Care of Magical Creatures Class is taught and riders board the vehicle.

This test flight roller coaster takes all young willing wizards of Hogwarts over the Forbidden Forest and Hagrid’s Hut. Just as young wizards must bow and get permission from the Hippogriff’s, riders must also bow to the Hippogriff before the ride progresses up the lift hill. The cars then travel over a track, to the top of the lift, where riders have a full aerial view of The Wizarding World, and then dropped through various dips and turns around Hogwarts Grounds before being deposited at the start of the track, where Hagrid thanks riders, who then disembark.

Young Wizards must be 36 inches tall to ride.
