The day we have all been waiting for is finally here. Universal Orlando Resort’s highly anticipated Jurassic World VelociCoaster is now open!
Inspired by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World films, this apex predator of coasters is Florida’s fastest, tallest, and most intense launch coaster ever created.
Guests will experience an astounding dinosaur habitat, taking part in a breathtaking adventure complete with 360-degree inversions and a dynamic inverted stall that alone spans more than 100 feet of track. As guests plummet along a severe 80-degree drop and steep inclines, VelociCoaster lives up to its name, delivering an unparalleled roller coaster experience.
Featuring an original story starring the Velociraptor pack — Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo — VelociCoaster will immerse guests within a genuine Jurassic World environment surrounded by 36,000 square feet of elaborate rockwork, a giant waterfall and lush jungle vegetation and catapulting them along 4,700 feet of pulse-pounding track, 155 feet in the air at 70 mph. There is no turning back as guests are swept along a series of extreme maneuvers and high-speed launches that culminates in a spiraling 360-degree inversion, inches above the lagoon. Securely strapped into revolutionary-designed ride vehicles, VelociCoaster’s intensity will amplify a sense of weightlessness from start to finish.
As part of original content created exclusively for this groundbreaking new ride, the film’s original cast — Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong — reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu. True to their characters in the blockbuster films, Claire and Dr. Wu convey their enthusiasm in bringing guests within close proximity of Velociraptors as part of the coaster, while Owen believes otherwise.
