Riders of Universal Orlando's newest addition to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter may just find themselves in a tight spot, according to the resort's latest reveal.

Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure will feature the lethal constricting plant, Devil's Snare. The tentacle-like plant lives in "dark, damp environments" and takes a deathly grip on those it encounters.

Devil's Snare was featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, where it was used as a way to trap those who sought to find the precious stone. Luckily, Hermione was paying attention during Herbology and remembered that Devil's Snare hates sunlight.

Let's hope that some of the Florida sunshine manages to penetrate the 1,200 trees planted in Forbidden Forest so you don't fall into their clutches.

All week Universal Orlando Resort are releasing more information about its new immersive roller coaster which opens to guests on 13th June. Guests will be taken on a journey through the Forbidden Forest with everyone's favourite Care of Magical Creatures teacher, Hagrid.

So far we know that another Philosopher's Stone defender, Fluffy the three-headed dog and 20 pesky blue Cornish Pixies will feature in this technologically advanced coaster. We're excited to see what will be revealed next.
