VelociCoaster Now Open at Universal Orlando!

Are you ready for some new thrills? The Jurassic World VelociCoaster, is now open at Universal Orlando Resort, and raises the bar in extreme roller coaster design. It’s sure to be a must-do for coaster enthusiasts and thrill-seekers!

Now ready to welcome guests at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, the Jurassic World VelociCoaster spans more than 4,700 feet of track, reaching heights of up to 155 feet! The coaster’s signature maneuvers will have guests twisting and soaring above land, barrel rolling just inches above water, speeding through near-misses and launches within the paddock, and more…

Get ready for thrills! Guests encountering the VelociCoaster will:

  • 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!

Here’s a few details:

  • The VelociCoaster isn’t currently accepting Express Pass, including the complimentary Express Pass at Universal’s hotels.

  • As of opening day, the VelociCoaster is not running a virtual queue, only a stand-by line.

  • A single rider line is available.

  • The minimum height to ride is 51 inches. Child Swap is available.

  • The VelociCoaster is not currently part of Early Park Admission.

Like the Incredible Hulk Coaster and Rip Ride Rock-It, you can’t bring items with you on the ride – there are lockers just before you get on the ride (you can keep your stuff with you in the queue) where you can store bags, hats, phones, sunglasses, and the like. Be sure to store any loose items, such as glasses, hats, or stuff in your pockets, or you might lose them on the ride!
