10 Thrilling Details About Universal Orlando's Record-Breaking Jurassic Park Ride, the VelociCoaster
Universal Orlando has been teasing the "summer 2021" opening of its newest attraction – the Jurassic World VelociCoaster – for months, and now we finally have some real (and deliciously terrifying!) information. Much to the delight of anxious fans, the park recently announced that the coaster will officially open to the public on June 10, 2021. And while travel is still a bit unpredictable, we love having this to look forward to no matter when we get back to Florida!
Universal has described the coaster as the "Apex Predator of Roller Coasters," and it fits the bill in more ways than one. Not only will you encounter some of the well-known Velociraptors from the Jurassic World films, but it's also at the top of the feeding chain, so to speak, for roller coasters. In addition to being Florida's fastest and tallest launch coaster, it's also the movie franchise's first roller coaster!
Think you've got what it takes to handle this new breed of coaster? Here's everything you need to know before you buckle in.
