The roller coaster, which will reach speeds of up to 100 km / h, is being developed in the Jurassic Park area of the Islands of Adventure theme park
Universal says the ride will have riders spinning and hovering over 4,700 feet of the route when they encounter near misses, starts, 12 heart pounding seconds of airtime, and more.
According to Universal, the ride will be Florida’s fastest and tallest runway, “raise the bar for extreme roller coaster design,” the world’s first roller coaster based on the Jurassic World blockbuster franchise, and include an “original story” that is expands the thrills, dinosaurs, and environments fans have seen on the big screen.
Guests, explains Universal breathlessly, are sent “when they come across near misses, starts, 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime and more – with just one overlapping bar to hold them in place”.
You will “feel the rush of the chase next to a fast pack of velociraptors” when “accelerated by two pulsating starts, the fastest reaching 100 km / h in 2.4 seconds”.
Thrillseeker will also encounter a unique 360-degree barrel reel just above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, which is the first of its kind and goes up during the towering “cylinder” that riders 155 feet into the air Air and then immediately drifts into an 80 degree gradient.

During the ride, Thrillseekers will “experience an inverted stable with weightlessness that turns them upside down in a breathtaking maneuver that is the first of its kind,” says Universal
