PHOTOS, VIDEO: Animatronic Raptors, Coaster Trains Getting Chased, and Two-Sided Lockers! Tour the Queue of Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

While Jurassic World VelociCoaster doesn’t officially open until June 10, Passholder previews will be next month and Team Member previews began today. Thanks to some Team Members, we now have an inside look at the coaster’s immersive queue.

We could hear and see Team Members enjoying themselves.


According to the sign outside the coaster, not every element of the ride may be operating during this technical rehearsal.


Inside the queue, strips of light alternate colors. Here, the first room is lit up orange.


It then blinked to blue.


A statue of velociraptors sits beneath a honeycomb ceiling in one of the queue’s main rooms.


The ceiling lights also change color, illuminating the raptor statue.


In the photo above, you can see how the light strips will not always light up all at once, making the transition between colors smooth.


The walls are decorated with things such as medical check lists for the raptors.


There’s a test seat outside VelociCoaster and near the lockers, which are inside the queue. There’s also a place to check the size of your bag.


Each locker bank is themed after a different dinosaur, to help guests remember where they put their stuff.


The most exciting part? They are two-sided, meaning you retrieve your items from the other side when you exit.

Check out some cool scenes from the queue, including animatronic raptors, raptors chasing the launching roller coaster trains, and more in our video below:
