Stars of the Jurassic World films Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong will bring their characters from the silver screen to Universal Studios Hollywood’s Jurassic World–The Ride, opening this summer. This marks the first time the cast will appear as their iconic characters outside of the Jurassic World films for a theme park attraction.
This spectacular new ride will feature an original storyline that will take guests on a breathtaking excursion through the theme park as depicted in Jurassic World. It will soar to new heights with the addition of iconic dinosaurs from the movie, including the colossal Indominus rex and the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus in her natural habitat. Appearing to span over 60 feet in length and tipping the scales at over 30,000 pounds through stunning state-of-the-art visual effects, the Mosasaurus is a sight to behold as she moves just inches away from guests throughout her glass enclosure Aquarium Observatory, filled with the equivalent of 3.5 million gallons of water.
When Jurassic World—The Ride opens this summer, guests will be welcomed to a dramatically reimagined space reflective of the hit films. A fresh entry statement, stonework landscaping, and a contemporary redesign of the iconic Jurassic World gates, illuminated with billowing flames, will create the framework for the all new aesthetics. Once guests pass through the queue, they will board specially designed rafts that will navigate the lush environs of dense vegetation and traverse new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. When the Tyrannosaurus Rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new ferocious dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.
