Universal Studios Hollywood has shared new details on what fans can experience when “Jurassic World – The Ride” opens this summer.
One of the new offerings, Isla Nu-bar, takes its name from the fictitious island in the “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” films.
This standalone, open-air bar will serve up Tiki cocktails in three collectible cups: Etched Tiki, Bamboo-styled Tiki and Tiki God. Whether you get it blended or made-to-order, every drink is garnished with a pineapple leaf and edible orchid flower.
Beverages will include the Tropical Margarita, Piña Colada and Painkiller, along with island cocktails like Tiki Tai, Bird of Paradise, Peach Rum Runner and Mai Tai.
The new Jurassic Café will offer a selection of Costa Rican-themed cuisine, inspired by the location of the “Jurassic World” films.

Starters will include Chorizo and Potato Empanadas, Crispy Lettuce Leaf Roll with Shrimp, Tropical Fruit Salad and Pomegranate Guacamole with plantain chips.

Some of these include limited edition T-shirts and hats, drinkware, pins, and amber stones and jewelry. The shop will also carry custom-made, high-end dinosaur sculptures and maquettes replicated the Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Dilophosaurus, Styracosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, and Triceratops.
