It just got real.
Last year, the original Jurassic Park – The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood went into extinction so that it could undergo renovations for Jurassic World – The Ride, a newly updated version that would coincide with the current Jurassic World film franchise.
The teaser shows how what sort of terrors that will have park guests shout “Must Go Faster” as they try to escape Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus, and survive a battle between the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex and the ferocious Indominus Rex. Other new additions include a brand new entry statement, stonework landscaping and a contemporary redesign of the iconic JURASSIC WORLD gates, illuminated with billowing flames.
“Jurassic World—The Ride” will also debut an original storyline that takes place within the theme park as depicted in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s film, Jurassic World, on the day the Indominus rex escapes.
Some of the newest additions will include an encounter with the colossal Indominus rex and the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus that will mesmerize onlookers in her natural habitat from behind a three million gallon glass encased Aquarium Observatory tank.
There will also be engaging and interactive queue-line videos featuring facts and information about the dinosaurs within the ride will set the tone for the expedition ahead, as guests learn more about these imposing prehistoric creatures that first roamed the earth more than 65 million years ago.
Once aboard specially designed rafts, guests will navigate the lush environs of dense vegetation, traversing new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away from visitors. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey.
When the Tyrannosaurus rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new ferocious dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.
The new area will also expand with two new additions, including a “Raptor Encounter” where Blue, the most beloved Velociraptor from the JURASSIC WORLD franchise, will engage guests in daring face-to-face encounters; and a new interactive “Dino Play” area will incorporate educational components within an inspired space where children of all ages can explore and excavate giant dinosaur fossils.
Jurassic World – The Ride is set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood this summer.
