More construction walls have begun going up near the lagoon in Islands of Adventure's Jurassic Park land, fueling rumors that Universal Orlando is about to begin construction on a new thrill ride.
Just as soon as Universal's sister park in California last year announced that it would close its Jurassic Park flume ride to retheme it to Jurassic World, fans began asking when Orlando would make its own move to upgrade IOA's Jurassic Park land. Fans have been talking for years about changes and additions to the area — some ideas actually spitballed by Universal Creative and others purely the result of fans' imaginations.
Universal last year filed permits for work in the land, with the name "Project 791," following Universal's naming convention of using numbers to describe its projects in development. Those permits were to clear space around the old Triceratops Encounter, which is widely considered to become the heart of the new thrill ride.
