VelociCoaster is the newest rollercoaster added to Islands of Adventure, replacing the defunct Triceratops Encounter attraction.
The ride's story is that guests are among the first riders on a new, first-of-its-kind attraction inside a velociraptor pen. In the queue, Dr. Henry Wu (played by BD Wong) guides us through the raptor genetic breeding process. Operations manager Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) reassures us the rollercoaster through the paddock is perfectly safe – raptor trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) is less convinced.
The ride experience is best described as a coaster of two halves: the first is a twisty half similar to Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, but with inversions, and the second half is full of speed and daring maneuvers over the water, like The Incredible Hulk Coaster.
VelociCoaster is intense, yet smooth – the intensity comes from the airtime and crazy maneuvers and not the roughness of the track. The only thing holding you in is a lap bar, which makes it comfortable one yet thrilling thanks to the air time, speed and the two separate launches.
