Universal says the ride will send riders ‘twisting and soaring across 4,700ft of track as they encounter near-misses, launches, 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime and more’

According to Universal, the ride will be Florida’s fastest and tallest launch coaster, will ‘raise the bar in extreme roller coaster design’, will be the world’s first coaster based upon the blockbuster Jurassic World franchise and will feature an ‘original story that expands upon the thrills, dinosaurs and environments fans have seen on the big screen’.

Guests, explains Universal breathlessly, will be sent ‘twisting and soaring across 4,700ft of track as they encounter near-misses, launches, 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime and more – with just a lap bar restraint holding them in place’.

They will ‘feel the rush of the hunt alongside a swift pack of velociraptors’ as they are accelerated ‘through two pulse-pounding launches, the fastest reaching 70mph in 2.4 seconds’.

Thrillseekers will also encounter ‘a one-of-a-kind, 360-degree barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, experience a zero-gravity inverted stall that will send them upside down across 100 feet of track in a jaw-dropping manoeuvre that is the first of its kind and go airborne during the towering “top hat”, which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80-degree drop’.

The resort explains: ‘Jurassic World VelociCoaster will be the next exciting addition to Jurassic Park at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

‘Only in this immersive land can visitors come face-to-face with life-size dinosaurs in incredible theme park experiences, including Jurassic Park River Adventure, where a leisure raft ride turns into a daring eight-story plunge to escape a ferocious T. Rex. And Raptor Encounter, where guests can test their bravery and get up-close to Velociraptor Blue and the newest additions to the paddock – baby raptors – while learning more about the clever carnivores.’ 

More details about the VelociCoaster will be revealed in the months ahead, promises Universal.
