Get a Sneak Peek Behind the Scenes of Universal Orlando Resort in ‘The Making of Jurassic World VelociCoaster’ Special


Universal Orlando Resort and Peacock have released The Making of Jurassic World VelociCoaster special. Hosted by Mario Lopez, it takes theme park fans behind the scenes into the three-year development of the epic new rollercoaster.

Located in Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, the new coaster is based around the Jurassic World franchise. It launches riders into the Velociraptor enclosure where they will experience speeds of up to 70 mph, heights of 155 feet, high-speed launches and inversions. The coaster also features the franchise’s stars, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong.

The special will give fans an insight into what it took to build Florida’s fastest, tallest and most intense launch coaster. It includes insights from Mark Woodbury (President of Universal Creative and Vice Chairman of Universal Parks & Resorts), Thierry Coup (Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Universal Creative), and project leads, Shelby Honea (Show Producer) and Greg Hall (Art Director) – along with Jurassic World filmmakers, Colin Trevorrow (Director) and Frank Marshall (Producer).

The Making of Jurassic World VelociCoaster is streaming exclusively on Peacock. It is sure to be a hit with theme park fans who love to see behind the scenes. Make sure to check out the clip below!
