It’s all been a bit of a rollercoaster, only without the thrills so it’s good to be able to bring some good news…. VelociCoaster.
You’ll soar 155ft in the air and be catapulted up to 70mph alongside a pack of Velociraptors.
You’ll find Veloci (and me, God willing) in the Universal Orlando Resort‘s Islands of Adventure theme park from June 10.
Now this puts a new spin on interactive.
And Veloci fans will be able to reacquaint themselves with Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr Henry Wu.
The Veloci pack
The pack, obvs, Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo. Bravo!
There will be rocks, hell yeah, and the watchtower.
The doc will even give you the lowdown on his ‘carnivore expansion’ and Claire will help with reassuring words.
You’ll be sped through the paddock, hug the water.
Heck, over to my old pal Jon from Universal Orlando to describe the rush.
Ride of your life
Get ready to encounter a series of intense manoeuvres along the coaster’s 4,700 feet of track.
All including near misses and a barrel roll right above the Islands of Adventure lagoon, high-speed launches.
And the fastest will reach 70 mph in 2.4 seconds.
The signature move is the ‘Top Hat’ which propels riders 155 feet in the air.
Before immediately taking you into an 80-degree drop – Universal’s steepest drop yet.Aaaaawlando!
