Though construction on the Jurassic Park roller coaster is visible from almost all points inside Universal Orlando Resort's Islands of Adventures, up until now, the resort has not acknowledged this upcoming attraction. However, for a few minutes on Friday evening, official details about this attraction were posted on Universal's official website confirming both that this attraction is set for a 2021 opening as well as its name: Jusrassic World VelociCoaster! Here's the official description from the website:

Step into Jurassic Park and stand in awe and wonder at a land transformed by science after 65 million years. But don’t be deceived by the island’s beauty because danger lurks behind every corner. Only here can you live the adventure of coming face to face with giant creatures of the Earth’s past, encounter raptors roaming every day, or take a daring raft expedition through jungles teeming with dinosaurs

Unfortunately, just a few minutes after the information was published, it was quickly taken down, suggesting Universal isn't quite ready to confirm these details just yet. But considering how construction progress is proceeding as well as previous rumors about the name, we'd guess that most (if not all) of this information is correct, and we'll probably see an official announcement very soon!
