Details Revealed for Universal Orlando's Jurassic World VelociCoaster
Universal Orlando Resort has released some details about their upcoming attraction "Jurassic World VelociCoaster", their most thrilling roller coaster yet. The ride will debut on June 10.
Opening on June 10 at Universal's Islands of Adventure, Jurassic World VelociCoaster will become the ultimate coaster for thrill enthusiasts and the "must-ride" theme park experience of 2021. 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 thrilling new attraction, which sends guests on an extreme adventure through the Raptor paddock and beyond with the films' Velociraptor pack. Riders will scream through a series of unbelievable near-misses and maneuvers, including two high-speed launches - the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds - a total of 12 seconds of weightlessness, a barrel roll just inches above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, and the signature "Top Hat," which will send riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80-degree drop.
Guests will encounter Velociraptors as soon as they enter the attraction, including Blue, along with Charlie, Delta, and Echo. In the queue, guests will be able to peer into the Raptor paddock and watch the hunt they are about to embark on unfold before their very eyes.
After that, guests will be in the stables where Delta and Echo will scan the room, studying riders as they pass by - occasionally testing the limits of the grooming stations currently restraining them. This awe-inspiring moment will be the first face-to-face encounter guests will have with the Raptors - and they'll be so close, guests will even feel their breath.
Finally, the hunt officially begins as guests board ride vehicles and take off on an intense coaster adventure where they'll narrowly escape Blue, Charlie, Delta, and Echo as they twist, turn and soar through the paddock.
