JUST ANNOUNCED: Jurassic World VelociCoaster (Video)
Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, just announced the Jurassic World VelociCoaster and they are claiming that it will be “Florida’s fastest and tallest launch coaster.”
Here's some stats:
- Accelerate through two pulse-pounding launches, the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds.
- A 360-degree barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon.
- A zero-gravity inverted stall that will send riders upside down across 100 feet of track.
- An 80 degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet.
- 12 seconds of airtime – the feeling of weightlessness riders feel when they’re lifted from their seats.
- 4,700 feet of track
- Heights of up to 155 feet.
Universal says that the attraction is set to open next summer.
The VelociCoaster will be part of Universal’s Islands of Adventure, which also includes the Jurassic Park River Adventure, where a leisure raft ride turns into a daring eight-story plunge to escape a ferocious T. rex; and Raptor Encounter, where guests can test their bravery and get up-close to Velociraptor Blue.
