    I’m interested by the summer 2021 announcement. I expected it to be closer to late March/early April myself.

    Glad that it’s finally been announced though so hopefully we’ll get some good marketing coming soon

    Probably learnt their lesson from Hagrids, I know the scale is different but Hagrid’s opened way too soon.

    They're probably giving themselves somewhat of a Covid-cushion as well.

    Universal have just uploaded this trailer for the coaster:



    Looks like there'll be fire effects and lighting in additional to a small pre-show. Good to see that the trains will have the lap bar style restraints too

    EDIT: A couple of stats and additional info have been released too:
    - Two launches, the fastest reaching 70mph in 2.4 seconds
    - The top-hat element is 150ft tall with an 80 degree drop
    - A total of 12 seconds of airtime throughout the ride
    - The ride will follow a new story set in the Jurassic World canon, featuring characters from the film. The ride is the next evolution of Jurassic World's "carnivore expansion", where riders can feel the rush of the hunt whilst racing with the velociraptor pack

    The theming looks underwhelming, too. Have no idea why Universal decided to make it so dark.
