Although this brand new ride is also set to be nestled amongst the prehistoric undergrowth of the Jurassic Park themed area of Islands of Adventure it will officially mark the arrival of a Jurassic World themed attraction to the resort for the very first time since the re-theme of the Jurassic Park themed boat ride at Universal Studios Hollywood last in 2019!
The ride is set to reach speeds of upto and including 70 mph in 2.4 seconds and reach dizzying heights of up to 150ft as guests duck and dive between rocks and ravines.
The ride is also set to feature a whopping 12 seconds of airtime, a fantastic Zero-G Stall over 100ft of track, glide through a real one of a kind barrell roll over the lagoon outside the Jurassic Park discovery center and hurtle those brave enough through some of the most intense elements on any coaster located within the resort to date!
The ride has been confirmed to feature an entirely unique new storyline separate from the films which is said to expand on the already Jurassic World universe as guests are joined once again throughout their experience by notable characters Henry Wu, Claire Dearing and of course probably the most iconic of them all Chris Pratt as the legendary Raptor wrangler himself, Owen Grady.
