ORLANDO, Fla. - A line hundreds of people deep stacked up throughout Islands of Adventure on Friday as fans got a second chance to ride Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure after its opening day Thursday.
The catch? More than two hours after the park opened, the ride had not.
Universal Orlando Resort tweeted that the ride was experiencing a “delayed opening.”
The park opened at 9 a.m., but according to the Universal Orlando app, the ride did not open until just before noon.
As of noon, the wait was listed as 360 minutes -- or six hours.
Looks like @UniversalORL #HagridsMagicalCreaturesMotorbikeAdventure is back in business. Just before noon the app stop saying delayed and now gives a wait time. @WFTV Good luck #Muggles! pic.twitter.com/xHw6uratKW— Cierra Putman WFTV (@CPutman_WFTV) June 14, 2019
Company officials communicated with visitors through Twitter about the delay.

Is the ride still delayed? And is there any chance of it being reopened today? And do you happen to know what wait time it’ll be currently?— Ben Boocock (@ben_boocock) June 14, 2019
On Thursday, wait times for the ride topped out at 10 hours. Big crowds, as well as inclement weather, were responsible for the wait times Thursday.
