I got to ride Hagrid's this morning, with a 30 minute queue after getting to the park for opening. Thankfully I went on straight away, as it appears it has a bit of a bee problem, and as such has been closed nearly all day today.

The coaster closed Wednesday afternoon because of hundreds, possibly thousands, of bees were found near the attraction.
In an email to Spectrum News, a Universal spokesperson said its team is "working to resolve the issue."
"We will reopen the attraction as soon as we're able to do so," the spokesperson wrote.
So bees aside, it's a great solid coaster. In a rudimentary way it could be described as a family friendly Taron. It has several sweeping turns, which when riding on the motorbike are brilliant, as you're riding higher up and sightly more exposed.
The reverse switch part is fun, but I suspect far better if you're in the first 3 rows. The last 2 rows don't really go up the stall, so the experience back there is just kind of a gradual slow down then reverse, rather than being pushed up the stall track.
The drop is fun, I would say less extreme than Th13teen, but that could be due to it not having wind effects to emphasise the drop like Th13teen does.
Brilliant ride, and should handle capacity really well once everything is running smoothly. Even today, for the brief part it opened in the morning, there were several trains on track at the same time, which were fun to watch from the very small viewing area at the ride exit.
