Can't wait for the new Harry Potter themed roller coaster to open at Universal's Islands of Adventure next month?

Universal Orlando Resort released a video Monday giving you a sneak peak at what Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will look like.

According to the park, you'll venture to the edge of the Forbidden Forest and enter ruins behind Hagrid's hut.

It will also reportedly have the most launches of any roller coaster in the world, with seven.

The ride is touted by Universal as the first coaster in the U.S. to feature a free-fall vertical drop, dropping you nearly 17 feet. It will also be the longest in Florida, measuring nearly a mile in length.

Enchanted motorbikes will take you on an adventure through the Forbidden Forest – and you can ride the motorcycle like Hagrid or board the adjacent sidecar like Harry Potter.

The “story coaster” will catapult you 65 feet in the air at a more than 70-degree angle…then drop you backward in one movement.

It is set to open on June 13 at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. For more information, click here.
