Jurassic World VelociCoaster opens at Universal Orlando on June 10

The “ultimate thrill coaster” is one of the most highly anticipated roller coasters to debut this year.

On Tuesday, Universal Orlando Resort announced it plans to open Jurassic World VelociCoaster at the Islands of Adventure theme park on June 10.

The USA Today reports the new dinosaur-themed ride features a magnetic launch that hits 70 mph in 2.4 seconds and sends people over a 155-foot “top hat tower.”

Universal’s Creative art director Greg Hall is quoted as saying it will be one of the “most thrilling coasters in the world.”
