PHOTOS: New Velociraptor Statues Installed On Walkway to Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The raptors are coming… but at the Jurassic World VelociCoaster, they’re already here.


A pair of velociraptor statues have been unveiled, marking the waterfront plaza entrance to the attraction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.


Crews were on hand to oversee the unwrapping of the statues, which shows a pair of raptors ready to strike.


The statues have a bronze-like appearance, showing off a lot of detail down to the folds in the skin.


For those who can’t wait to see these beauties in person, they can be found just down the path from the VelociCoaster sign, installed just weeks ago, on the bypass bridge.


They rise above a construction wall that’s just steps away from the Jurassic Park Jeep photo op, so be sure to have your camera ready!


The Jurassic World VelociCoaster opens this summer at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Keep reading WDWNT and Universal Parks News Today work continues to bring this adventure to life.
