Bolliger & Mabillard

Flying Coaster

Universal Studios Japan's major new addition for 2016 is The Flying Dinosaur, rumored to have cost as much as $90 million to build.

The storyline behind the attraction is that the owners of Jurassic Park have long dreamed of creating a ride that would allow guests to fly through the sky with wild pteranodons. Finally, they managed to train the pteranodons - but their behavior is still unpredictable.

In reality, guests will board the longest Bolliger & Mabillard Flying Coaster in the world, featuring a 124-foot first drop and a 3,688 feet circuit. Riders will soar over much of the Jurassic Park area of Universal Studios Japan.
