Outdoor story coaster? (like Hagrid). Unlike Hulk, or RRR the story for the most part is the ride, not the queue.
Hate to say this but Hagrids is great because it is a newer type of rollercoaster that is fun and has decent theming. There is no story being told on that ride, at least not effectively.

Maybe because the pre-show isn't running. Hagrid is teaching a class to show you the Skrewts, which doesn't go as planned. The bikes take off on their own, Hagrid tries to use magic to fix it, fails, you're nearly burnt by the run away Skrewts (which you find) and you use the extra power on the bike to get back. During your run you also encounter Fluffy, pixies and a unicorn. I thought all that was pretty obvious, especially with the on board audio.

My humble opinion, i'd rather not have either. I don't think its apples to oranges though, Universal was never in the business of preserving sight lines, whereas early Epcot made that a priority. Simply put, there shouldn't be a coaster in Epcot at all, thus eliminating the need to choose between a ugly box or an ugly track to look at.
Unless Epcot gets Mt. Fuji... ;)

Yeah, it’s not an effective story and that’s okay, it’s still an amazing ride
