I normally try to go to at least one theme park a year because I absolutely love roller coasters, but obviously the global pandemic has made this a little more difficult this year.

Thankfully though I can at least get hyped about this new Jurassic Park ride that’s coming to Universal Studios next year and looks as if it’s going to be a complete game changer and not really like any roller coaster we’ve ever seen before. The Jurassic World Velocicoaster boasts some 4700 feet of track – just shy of a mile – and reaches heights of up to 155 feet and features the following highlights:
- Accelerate through two pulse-pounding launches, the fastest reaching 70 mph in 2.4 seconds.
- Encounter a one-of-a-kind, 360-degree barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon.
- Experience a zero-gravity inverted stall that will send riders upside down across 100 feet of track in a jaw dropping maneuver that is the first of its kind.
- Go airborne during the towering “Top Hat,” which propels riders 155 feet in the air and then immediately into an 80 degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet.
- Brace for a total of 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime – the thrilling sensation of weightlessness riders feel when they’re lifted from their seats – throughout the entire adventure.
Wow. That really does sound and look like it’s going to be an absolutely out of this (Jurassic) world experience. Only issue now is actually being able to fly to Orlando/be able to afford it, but I suppose we’ve got a whole year to save up and finalise that right now. Should be worth it.
