Universal Orlando Resort officials announced that on June 10, thrill-seekers will have the opportunity to soar 155 feet in the air and catapult up to 70 mph alongside a ferocious velociraptor pack on the Jurassic World VelociCoaster, Florida’s fastest and tallest launch coaster, located at the Islands of Adventure theme park.

Wonder if Busch will respond by opening Iron Gwazi a few days before....

I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.

We are going to be at Disney but not Universal that week (my kid is turning five and there's just not enough there for her) and I'm really pretty sad about it. Looks awesome.

Judging by Hagrid's opening problems/wait times, you're better off.

They "officially" opened Hagrid's when they should have "soft" opened. They've been cycling Jurrasicoaster trains for a couple of months and they'll likely soft open before June. It's not going to be without its issues but it seems they've learned their lesson.

I take my comments about it looking slow back. It’s running fast and cycling what looks to be the full rotation of trains at the moment.

Really hoping for some soft opens in May to avoid the summer crowds and heat. This is the most excited I've been for a new coaster since Steel Vengeance, and a new Orlando coaster since Mako.

There were test riders last night... I saw as many as 8 on a train.
