UPDATE: Mesh Added to Safety Cage at Jurassic World VelociCoaster Bridge in Universal’s Islands of Adventure
Earlier this week we reported a new cage structure was added to the still-closed bridge that would allow guests to bypass Hogsmeade to get to the Velocicoaster. The cage was added as a safety feature for guests below the coaster. Today we spotted another update to the cage. Let’s take a look.
A mesh covering has been added to the roof of the cage to prevent potential loose objects from falling off of riders on the coaster and landing on guests passing by below. Guests riding the coaster are required to store all loose items in a locker before riding and must pass through a metal detector.
In the next few photos, you can see just how close the new cage is to riders as they zoom by.
Guests on the ride will certainly want to be extra careful with putting their arms and hands up as they pass by this section of the coaster.
We will continue to keep an eye on this area for further developments.
What do you think of this new safety feature added? Let us know in the comments.
