Per an update on Universal Orlando’s official website, it has finally been confirmed that the roller coaster being built in the Jurassic Park section of Universal’s Islands of Adventure, titled “Jurassic World VelociCoaster,” is not only coming to the park, but now has an opening season.
UPDATE – 09/25/20, 6:37 p.m.: Universal has removed the mention of the VelcociCoaster from their website here. You can see the inclusion of the formerly-unannounced ride in the tweet below from Expedition Theme Park:
According to the webpage, which you can see for yourself here, guests will “feel the rush of the hunt” as they “race through the jungle alongside raptors” on the Jurassic World VelociCoaster, which has an opening set for summer 2021.
This is the first real acknowledgement of the roller coaster by Universal Orlando, and comes a little less than a month after a possible ride vehicle design was leaked online.
Stay tuned for the latest updates on the upcoming roller coaster, as well as even more construction updates.
