Universal Orlando’s ‘Jurassic World’ VelociCoaster Launches in the Summer of 2021

Those brave enough to ride Florida’s newest, fastest, and tallest launch roller coaster will get their first opportunity to ride the dino-coaster in the summer of 2021 at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure. The Jurassic World VelociCoaster will send riders on a harrowing journey through a series of intense drops, twists, and turns that will catapult the explorers up to 70 mph and more than 150 feet in the air.

The Jurassic World VelociCoaster will be an original story that expands upon the recent films and the original cast will return for pre-ride videos including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong.

According to the official Universal Studios press release, the coaster will span “…more than 4,700 feet of track and reaching heights of up to 155 feet, the coaster’s signature maneuvers will have guests twisting and soaring above land, barrel rolling just inches above water, speeding through near-misses and launches within the paddock, and more…”

Guests 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 riders upside down across 100 feet of track in a jaw-dropping maneuver that is the first of its kind, go airborne during the towering “Top Hat,” which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80 degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet” and 12 seconds of airtime when riders are almost pulled out of their seats.

And if all of the g-force isn’t enough to thrill you, there will be hungry raptors at every turn to increase the fear factor.

Check out the preview video below and see if you can stand one of the most intense rides in the world (Jurrassic World that is)!
