Universal Announces New Jurassic World Ride

Extinction is coming!

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced that the fan-favorite Jurassic Park ride will go the way of the dinosaurs this September. In its place, a new Jurassic World attraction will open its doors, bringing the thrills of Universal’s exciting new franchise to life!

Check out the announcement video posted below…


In 1996, Universal Studios Hollywood redefined theme park thrill rides with the unprecedented introduction of Jurassic Park—The Ride, based on three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg’s epic film. Hailed as a technological achievement of triumph and wizardry, the ride featured newly debuted principles of hydraulic physics, mechanics and space-age robotics. Working in partnership with scientists, palaeontologists and aerospace engineers, Universal Creative—the team that develops Universal theme park rides—brought to life one of the most compelling rides ever created. Life-sized and lifelike animatronic dinosaurs, some towering over five-stories high, freely roamed the earth at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Twenty-two years later—and after sending millions of guests back to the Jurassic era for menacing face-to-face encounters with such predators as Stegosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Dilophosaurus, Velociraptors and the Tyrannosaurus rex—“Jurassic Park—The Ride” will become extinct in preparation for a new, next-generation experience that’s even more immersive and technologically advanced. The new ride will pay homage to Jurassic Park and will reimagine this landmark film franchise for theme park guests. 

The Jurassic Cove restaurant and Jurassic Outfitters retail store also will close with the attraction and reopen with the new experience in 2019.

Are you ready for life to find a way?
