Jurassic World VelociCoaster – Now Open!!
Speeding through the jungle, rising high above the terrain, it’s the apex predator of roller coasters: the Jurassic World VelociCoaster. Now you can board your vehicle for a high-speed dash through the park’s raptor paddock. Feel the rush of the hunt as you race alongside these nimble predators, twisting and soaring above the land and water.
The Jurassic World Velocicoaster is the third collaboration with Intamin and will be Florida’s fastest launch coaster, with a top speed of 70 miles per hour. It will also be the state’s tallest launch coaster, with a maximum height of 155 feet. The track length is more than 4,700 feet. According to Universal, On the VelociCoaster “riders embark on a high-speed chase and feel the rush of the hunt while racing alongside a nimble Velociraptor pack.” It also mentions original movie cast members Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong and Pratt. It features two launches — with one reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds — on a track of more than 4,700 feet, with a top height of 155 feet. That 155-foot Top Hat feature will be joined by a 360-degree barrel roll above the Islands of Adventure lagoon and a zero-gravity inverted stall which Universal calls “a jaw-dropping maneuver that is the first of its kind.” It is a must do for all the thrill seekers out there.
