Jurassic World - The Ride opens at Universal Hollywood
POSTED 15 Jul 2019 . BY Tom Anstey
Revamped and completely reimagined, Universal's popular Jurassic Park thrill ride has undergone a full rebranding and retheming as Jurassic World – The Ride.

Inspired by the popular IP's new set of Jurassic World films, the Vekoma-manufactured ride, which first opened in 1996, now features Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong, who reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu.

The water ride includes an underwater encounter with the Mosasaurus, docile dinosaurs such as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus, and predatory dinosaurs such as Dilophosaurus and Blue the Velociraptor. Following a battle between a Tyrannosaurus rex and the Indominus Rex, riders are dropped 84ft (25.6m) for a big splash to conclude the experience.

Industrial Light & Magic – a division of Lucasfilm – collaborated with the design team at Universal Studios Hollywood to create a digital version of Mosasaurus and its environment for the ride. The giant sea monster is part of the Aquarium Observatory section – an area that responds to real-world weather. Motion parallax technology shifts the rider's perspective as the dinosaur swims around its virtual tank.
