PHOTOS: Aerial Photos Show Raptor Figures Placed Inside “Velocicoaster” Site in Jurassic Park at Universal’s Islands of Adventure
Luckily for Jurassic Park visitors, the new raptors have been contained… for now.
Aerial photographer @bioreconstruct has captured images of the two new raptors that were recently brought into the site of the still-unannounced “Velocicoaster” under construction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
The dinosaurs, wrapped in plastic, are positioned near the coaster track, giving guests an up-close view as they race by.
The first raptor arrived at the site on Monday, while the second was installed on Tuesday. (I really hope that transfer cage is ready.)
When complete, guests will travel at up to 60 miles per hour on the coaster, doing barrel rolls over the lagoon and passing by elaborate water features… and some dangerous dinos. It gives new meaning to the phrase, “hold onto your butts.”
If you’d like to see more, be sure to check out our video of one of the raptors being lowered into place.
