Universal Orlando Announces Opening Date for VelociCoaster


JUPITER, Florida – Universal Orlando Resort has announced an opening date for its new Jurassic World VelociCoaster. On June 10, 2021, guests can experience a brand new high-speed adventure with Jurassic Parks cast members including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong.

The coaster reaches 155 feet in the air at speeds of up to 100 km / h, making it Florida’s fastest and highest take-off coaster.

The Velocicoaster is an update of the Jurassic Park area from Islands of Adventure.

Universal said, “VelociCoaster will take guests into a dynamic setting inspired by the Jurassic World movies, surrounded by detailed rockwork and lush landscaping. Guests will be greeted by Dr. Wu as they learn about the cutting-edge new Experience coasters, which Jurassic World is touting as its newest “Carnivore Expansion.” Along the way, you’ll hear the screams of fellow passengers as they rush past with Blue, Delta, Charlie and Echo on their heels – and even encounter a few hungry Velociraptors eager to be released As the adrenaline builds up and guests near the truck bed, they will hear a few comforting words from Claire Dearing – and a final warning from Owen Grady. “
