Universal Studios Hollywood released a new TV spot today promoting the upcoming Jurassic World—The Ride! We get our first look at an actual scene from the attraction (or at least a representation of a scene) with the dreaded mosasaur water dinosaur attacking an aquarium wall. The fun video also features a great montage of the T-Rex menacing the entire Universal backlot before bursting through the iconic entrance gates.
While the mosasaur won’t be an animatronic figure, the ride will feature new dinosaur animatronics. Here’s some details we learned officially from Universal:
The storyline that place within the theme park as depicted in JURASSIC WORLD, on the day the Indominus rex escapes.
Once aboard specially designed rafts, guests will navigate the lush environs of dense vegetation, traversing new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away from visitors. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. When the Tyrannosaurus rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new ferocious dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.
See it for Yourself
Jurassic World—The Ride is set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood summer 2019.
