Last year, Rupert spoke about growing up in the spotlight and turning 30, as he said: ‘I don’t feel like I’m 30 at all. I have quite a weird relationship with age, because of that period of my life on Potter. It was very strange.’

The new ride travels up to 50 mph at times and can hold 14 guests at a time, who can choose whether to sit on a motorcycle or sidecar. 

The new ride replaces fan-favourite Dragon Challenge, which ran from 1999 until 2017 at Universal. 

James admitted he was worried about swapping the rides: ‘I really liked Dragon Challenge. It was one of my favorite rides in the world…

‘So, when they said they were replacing it, I was a bit, “Uhhh”‘.

Wahey! The new ride travels up to 50 mph at times and can hold 14 guests at a time, who can choose whether to sit on a motorcycle or sidecar
