Universal Orlando Resort has announced the opening date for the highly anticipated Jurassic World VelociCoaster — June 10.

What’s Happening:

  • Universal Orlando Resort announced an opening date of June 10, 2021, for the Jurassic World VelociCoaster over at Islands of Adventure.
  • The attraction brings to life a new Jurassic World story where Guests go through an adventure through the raptor paddock and beyond with the films’ Velociraptor pack: Blue, Charlie, Delta, and Echo.
  • The original cast from the movies – Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong – reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, and Dr. Henry Wu in the new attraction.
  • You can check out our photo report with views of the ride vehicles racing through the bridge between The Lost Continent and Jurassic Park and when construction walls were removed.
  • Merchandise has also started to appear in anticipation of the opening.

About the Attraction:

  • VelociCoaster will transport Guests into a dynamic environment inspired by the Jurassic World films, surrounded by intricately detailed rock work and lush landscaping, conveniently located near the elevated watch tower used to keep an eye on the dinosaurs.
  • Once inside, Guests are greeted by Dr. Wu as they learn about the cutting-edge new coaster, which Jurassic World is touting as its newest “carnivore expansion.” Along the way, they’ll hear the screams of fellow riders as they rapidly roar by with Blue, Delta, Charlie, and Echo right on their heels – and even come face-to-face with a few hungry Velociraptors who are anxiously awaiting being released from their stables.
  • As the adrenaline builds and Guests approach the load platform, they will hear a few reassuring words from Claire Dearing – and one final warning from Owen Grady.

  • After boarding revolutionary ride vehicles that have been specially designed to intensify the thrills, Guests take off on an epic coaster experience that sends them through the raptor paddock, into the air, just inches above water, and more.
  • They’ll encounter a series of intense maneuvers along the coaster’s 4,700 feet of track, including near-misses, a barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, high-speed launches – the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds – and the signature “Top Hat,” which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80-degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet.

Guests will be racing through the raptor paddock alongside Velociraptors very soon when the attraction opens on June 10, 2021.
