ORLANDO, Fla. – Things are ready to get wild at Universal Orlando Resort.

The theme park announced June 10 as the opening date for its anticipated new attraction, The Jurassic World: Velocicoaster.

The new attraction is opening in the Jurassic Park-themed land at Island’s of Adventure.

“This all-new species of roller coaster was conceived and designed by the award-winning Universal Creative team in partnership with acclaimed filmmakers from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment – bringing to life a new ‘Jurassic World’ story that combines the epic thrills and popular characters from the blockbuster film franchise with jaw-dropping roller coaster maneuvers,” officials said in a news release.

Take a look at a new video of the ride announcement below.

Designed for speed and engineered for the hunt, the coaster’s revolutionary ride vehicle will send riders twisting and soaring across 4,700 feet of track as they encounter near-misses, launches, 12 heart-pounding seconds of airtime and more -- with just a lap bar restraint holding them in place.

One of the two pulse-pounding launches will send guests up to 70 mph in 2.4 seconds.
