Universal finally confirmed the Jurassic World VelociCoaster this week (October 4th), revealing lots of new and exciting new details about this attraction. Like other recent "story" coasters, this new ride will feature an original story that is based on the Jurassic World family of films and will take fans on an amazing ride as Jurassic World unveils the next evolution of its “carnivore expansion”: the VelociCoaster, where riders embark on a high-speed chase and feel the rush of the hunt while racing alongside a nimble Velociraptor pack. The ride will feature the original cast of the film series, including Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing and BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu. This new attraction will raise the bar in extreme roller coaster design, spanning more than 4,700 feet of track and reaching heights of up to 155 feet, with maneuvers that will have guests twisting and soaring above land, barrel rolling just inches above water, speeding through near-misses and launches within the raptor paddock, and more.
We'll probably see an opening sometime early next year, the track is installed and there appears to be a lot of rock work and greenery as well. Great views of this can be seen from the U-Rest area at the front of the park.
