Universal Orlando Unveils Details About "VelociCoaster"


Universal Orlando Resort is introducing what it calls "Florida's fastest and tallest launch coaster."

Riders on the Jurassic World VelociCoaster will be launched over 150 feet into the air and reach speeds of 70 miles per hour in two-point-four seconds.

Universal released a video rendering of the ride.

The dinosaur-themed ride will open at Universal's Islands of Adventure next year.
