Holidaymakers will be catapulted more than 150 feet in the air at up to 70 mph on a new roller coaster to open at Universal Orlando Resort in 2021.

The Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park is based on the film franchise and is claimed to be Florida’s “fastest and tallest launch coaster”.

Spanning more than 4,700 feet of track and reaching heights of up to 155 feet, the attraction will have users twisting and soaring above land and barrel rolling inches over water when it opens next summer.

The VelociCoaster has been designed by the Universal Creative team alongside filmmakers from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment.
