The official opening of the Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure is drawing near, and to help build anticipation, Universal Orlando has shared an official POV video of the new attraction.
- Universal Orlando has shared an official POV video of their thrilling new attraction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, the Jurassic World VelociCoaster.
- Located in Jurassic Park, the newest thrill ride in the resort 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 watchtower 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.
- To celebrate the upcoming grand opening of the attraction, Universal Orlando has also recently unveiled the highly-immersive new Jurassic World Tribute Store at Universal Studios Florida. Chock full of Jurassic World and Jurassic Park merchandise, the store also showcases fun treats and a slew of actual props as seen in the popular film franchise on display.
- Though the new attraction has been in technical rehearsals and special annual pass previews since the beginning of May, the official grand opening of Jurassic World VelociCoaster takes place on June 10th.
