Universal Orlando opened up its newest ride this week at its version of Hogsmeade, the village that surrounds Hogwarts castle. Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure takes wannabe wizards and witches on a twisting, high-speed flight through the mystical Forbidden Forest.

The line is worth the wait for many fans of the franchise. As Potterheads already know, Rubeus Hagrid, beloved friend of Harry Potter and the gang, has a special affinity for mysterious creatures. So who better to see the beasts of the forest with than the half-giant?

Participants on the ride can choose to sit in Hagrid’s sidecar or in the driver’s seat. The winding track includes appearances by some of our favorite wizards, like Arthur Weasley, and creatures benevolent and otherwise, such as Cornish pixies, massive spiders, and the three-headed dog, Fluffy.

Fans aren’t the only ones wanting to experience the ride. Some of the stars of the film series had a little reunion in Orlando this week to celebrate the opening, including Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood).

Mennonite teen dies waiting for heart transplant in Toronto.
A girl whose Mennonite family moved from rural eastern Ontario to Toronto so she could undergo a heart transplant has died before a donor could be found. In April, CBC told the story of 14-year-old Amanda Horst, who had been diagnosed with a heart-weakening condition called cardiomyopathy the month before. Her family of nine sold much of their livestock and moved from their farm on the outskirts of Bancroft to a rented house in Toronto in early June to be close to the transplant unit at Sick Kids Hospital in case a donor was found. She had only recently been added to the waiting list.
