Ride the Jurassic World VelociCoaster

The Jurassic World VelociCoaster opens on June 10th in Universal Orlando. David Martin from FOX 35 chats with enthusiasts who have been there several times.

They said drivers should be prepared for this:

  • Accelerate with two pulsating starts, the fastest of which reaches 70 mph in 2.4 seconds
  • Experience a one-of-a-kind 360 degree barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon
  • Experience an inverted stable in weightlessness that sends the riders upside down over a distance of 30 meters in a breathtaking maneuver that is the first of its kind
  • Soar in the air while the soaring “top hat” propels riders 155 feet in the air and then instantly into an 80-degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop to date
  • Prepare for a total of 12 heartbreaking seconds of airtime – the exhilarating feeling of weightlessness riders feel when they are lifted from their seats – throughout the adventure

The Jurassic World VelociCoaster will also reportedly be the world’s first roller coaster based on the blockbuster franchise and feature an original story “that expands the thrills, dinosaurs, and environments fans have seen on the big screen”.
