Jurassic World VelociCoaster Details
TypePoi | Ride
Height Req.51" (130cm) minimum
Frog OverviewJurassic World VelociCoaster will transport you into a dynamic environment inspired by the "Jurassic World" films, surrounded by intricately detailed rock work and lush landscaping, conveniently located near the elevated watch tower used to keep an eye on the dinosaurs. Once inside, you're greeted by Dr. Wu as you learn about the cutting-edge new coaster, which Jurassic World is touting as its newest "carnivore expansion." Along the way, you'll hear the screams of fellow riders, as you rapidly roar by Blue, Delta, Charlie and Echo right on their heels — and even come face-to-face with a few hungry Velociraptors who are anxiously awaiting being released from their stables. As the adrenaline builds and you approach the loading platform, you'll hear a few reassuring words from Claire Dearing — and one final warning from Owen Grady.
Then, the ultimate high-speed chase begins.
Take off on an epic coaster experience that sends you through the raptor paddock, into the air, just inches above water and more. You'll encounter a series of intense maneuvers along the coaster's 4,700 feet of track, including near-misses, a barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, high-speed launches — the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds — and the signature "Top Hat," which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80-degree drop — Universal's steepest drop yet.
