ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) – Universal Orlando has revealed details about additions to its new “Jurassic World VelociCoaster” before it opens on June 10 at the resort’s Island of Adventure Park.

“Guests will be able to peer into the raptor paddock while venturing through the queue – and watch the hunt they are about to embark on unfold before their very eyes,” the resort said in a press release.

Moving forward, guests will see the “stables,” where they’ll come across Delta and Echo, who will observe riders as they pass by.

“This awe-inspiring moment will be the first face-to-face encounter guests will have with the Raptors – and they’ll be so close, guests will even feel their breath,” Universal Orlando said.
