If you are as excited as all of us at Inside The Magic for Universal’s upcoming VelociCoaster, get ready to freak out. Since we received the news of the VelociCoaster being the official name of Universal’s Islands of Adventure Jurassic Park franchise themed coaster, construction has ramped up significantly. The roller coaster began pull-through testing, rock work is really taking shape, and were able to see the official Universal VelociCoaster trailer which gave us our first real look into what this beast was going to look like.
There are going to be incredible thrills on this coaster like a dive spiral, two launches, and most exciting of all, a 155-foot drop that peaks high enough for all of Islands of Adventure to be seen. The blue lighting on the inGen ride vehicle is expected to zoom by so fast we will only see the lighting flash by at night as we ride along with the velociraptors of Jurassic World.
