Despite no major visuals unveiled just yet, Universal Studios Hollywood just released a bunch of new details about what we can expect when they open “Jurassic World—The Ride” this summer!
Although many feared usage of screens to replace physical dinosaurs, the new attraction promises “dimensional animatronic dinosaurs, including some all-new fan favorites featured in the Jurassic World films from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment.”
The state-of-the-art attraction will debut an original storyline that takes place within the theme park as depicted in JURASSIC WORLD. It will feature additional new show scenes and new technology that has “yet to be experienced within a theme park.”
A fresh, new entry statement, stonework landscaping and a contemporary redesign of the iconic pillars illuminated with billowing flames will support a prominent “Jurassic World” marquee logo.
Engaging queue videos featuring facts and information about the dinosaurs within the ride set the tone for the adventure ahead, as guests learn more about these imposing prehistoric inhabitants 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 just an arm’s length away from visitors.
Expect to find Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus on a journey that will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc.
When the Tyrannosaurus Rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new behemoth dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.

Located adjacent to the ride will be a new elaborately themed “Raptor Encounter” where Blue, the most beloved and deadly Velociraptor from the Jurassic World franchise, and her beta Raptors will engage guests in daring face-to-face encounters.
In addition, a new interactive “Dino Play” area will incorporate educational components within an inspired space where children of all ages can partake in excavations and investigate giant dinosaur fossils.
This ambitious ride is being reimagined under the direction of the award-winning and inspired minds at Universal Creative, the Academy Award®-winning special-effects visionaries at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), a division of Lucasfilm, Ltd., the brand stewards at Universal Pictures and acclaimed filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow and Frank Marshall.
