Though we've been able to see a few quick glances of the Jurassic World VelociCoaster vehicles while the ride has been in testing, Universal Orlando Resort officially unveiled what the vehicles that will be used as part of this attraction will look like, as well as what looks like the tiniest preview of what one of the attraction's two pulse-pounding launches. Check out the video below for the full reveal:
When it opens, the VelociCoaster will feature several brand new roller coaster innovations, including a zero-gravity inverted stall that will send riders upside down across 100 feet of track in a jaw-dropping maneuver that is the first of its kind and a “Top Hat” element which will propel riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80 degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet. The ride will also feature total of 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime – the thrilling sensation of weightlessness riders feel when they’re lifted from their seats – throughout the entire adventure
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.
Right now this new attraction is officially slated to open in Summer 2021, and when it does it will officially be Florida’s fastest and tallest launch coaster. Are you excited to check it out when it launches next year?
