Universal Studios Unleashed a First Look at the Revamped Jurassic Park Ride, and OMG
After nearly a year of impatient anticipation, we finally have our first look at Universal Studios Hollywood's new and improved Jurassic Park ride — and guys, it looks in-freakin-TENSE.
To refresh your memory, the California theme park announced last Summer that its 22-year-old Jurassic Park attraction would be briefly closing to undergo a facelift and transform into an entirely different dinosaur-themed experience. Dubbed Jurassic World — The Ride, the attraction will still transport parkgoers on water rafts just like the original attraction, but it'll feature way more terrifying, realistic encounters along the way. In addition to the enormous T-Rex situated atop the 84-foot waterfall drop, there will be predatory Velociraptors, Dilophosauruses, and the Indominus Rex — oh, and the Mosasaurus, that toothy, aquatic beast from the Jurassic World movie is involved, too. Yikes!
On April 17, Universal Studios Hollywood released a teaser video to give dinosaur-lovers a peek at the forthcoming ride, which opens this Summer. Hold on to your butts and watch it below.
