Universal Studios Hollywood has refurbished the classic Jurassic Park: The Ride, turning it into Jurassic World: The Ride. The new attraction brings a new modern color scheme to match up with the current franchise and adds a few characters from the hit movie, including Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady, Bryce Dallas Howard’s Clare Dearing, BD Wong’s Henry Wu, the Mosasaurus, and the Indominus rex.

We were lucky to be at the park on Friday afternoon, and we recorded a vlog about our experience on the new Jurassic World: The Ride. Hit the jump to watch the Jurassic World The Ride video.

That revamp includes a new addition that allows the ride to respond to inclement weather – something I’ve never seen done in a theme park ride before.

The end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom teased the idea that dinosaurs roaming around in the world without restrictions would be a big part of Jurassic World 3. However, according to director and writer Colin Trevorrow, fans shouldn’t expect to see dinosaurs attacking cities and neighborhoods like Rise of the Planet of the Apes or some kind of Godzilla movie.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Jurassic World 3 won’t take dinosaurs into cities and suburbs. After all, we already got that in The Lost World: Jurassic Park when a tyrannosaurus rex was let loose in San Diego, and it really tainted the sequel. So if we’re not going to see a big dinosaur monster movie in Jurassic World 3, then what can we expect? Read More »
