Universal Orlando Resort App Confirms Jurassic World VelociCoaster Physical Requirements

Jurassic World VelociCoaster will finally be opening at Universal’s Islands of Adventure on June 10, 2021. The Universal Orlando Resort has now been updated to include the attraction and lists physical requirements.

According to the app, guests with a waistline of 40″ or greater may not be accommodated on Jurassic World VelociCoaster. This is a relatively standard measurement for Universal Orlando Resort rides. There will be a test seat available at the ride’s entrance for guests to try out before getting in line. Trying out the test seat is strongly recommended to determine the ability to ride. The height requirement is 51″.

How do you feel about these requirements? Let us know in the comments.

The manufacturer, Intamin, created a ride with the same style cars and in the press release it states all seats are modified seating capable of seating guests up to 300 pounds: https://www.intamin.com/new-ride-concept-taron/
The new ergonomically formed seat with over-the-shoulder lap bars, is seating kids from 130cm as well as “big boys” up to 135kg most safely and at the same time highly comfortable in this ‘all in one’ seat. There is no need to equip the train with special dedicated “big boy seats” negatively affecting operations, the hourly capacity of the ride and the personal feelings of some guests.”

51 inches = 130 cm.

Many extreme rides on european theme parks has between 120 and 140 cm minimum height requirement. And somes, also, a maximum of 195 cm (see Parque Warner in Madrid).

IOA had a good decision with those height requirements.

40″, so 75% of America’s over the age of 8 won’t be able to fit / ride

These requirements are crap. Universal is putting a limit on people and in turn limiting the amount of fun visitors can have at their park. They really need to re-evaluate these restrictions so it can truly be fun for all ages.

I understand that very clearly it’s discriminatin against overweight and short people. I went to an amusement park in Pennsylvania one of the rides had special seats built for overweight people. Why didn’t disney think of that when they built this ridr

I think it sucks. Big people like to have fun and ride too. There should be at least two seats to accommodate them.

It limits people who are bigger in stature by no fault of their own (genetics). My son is 6’4 and about 250 pounds at the young age of 17! He was unable to ride 2 of the attractions when we visited this January. It’s disappointing to say the least.
If I would have known Universal has so many height and weight restrictions I would have never planned a trip.

Personally, I think this is pretty standard at this point. I think that the best experiences for all shouldn’t be constrained by safety restraints for some. When I had to switch seats on Hagrid’s ride because of my size, the shame from that inspired me to cut at least 8 inches off my waist. I think it’s a good wakeup call for people.

I feel like they need to have the test seats for their rides *outside* the park and that they should refund tickets to people if they fly all that way and can’t ride anything.

I know everyone hates fat people so this is like talking in the wind but it is 2021 and most Americans are fat, like 2/3 of us in fact. Just because the seats are designed on Asian designs doesn’t mean they’re intended for an Asian market. As we get fatter and fatter (and we will) their rides will become obsolete to all but foreigners and children.

No offense, but that’s a horrible reason to normalize having a bigger waist line. A lot of people have the ability to not be overweight and don’t make that choice. Also, nothing says that anyone over 40 inches can’t ride, it’s that you need to test it to see if you will fit, which some people can do with no problem.
They aren’t hating on fat people, we are just getting too comfortable with the idea that big is normal.

If you are paying a lot to be in the park to ride, then their should be seats big enough to accommodate bigger butt and waist sizes.

Not true, this language is used throughout the parks and Velocicoaster features all seats as modified seating.
