Meet Blue The Velociraptor at Raptor Encounter!
The Raptor Encounter attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort just got a new addition: Blue, the Velociraptor from Jurassic World! The Raptor Encounter allows park-goers to get up close and personal with raptors in face-to-face standoffs.
The lifelike rendition of Blue was created by employing the same computer-generated model and images that were used in the film. Every Raptor in the experience is 12 foot tall and measures 15 feet from snout to tail, with 18 inch feet and curved, 12 inch talons along with 56 teeth. Their “Handlers” guide the Raptors mere feet away from visitors as they lunge and screech!
Countdown to The Extinction of Jurassic Park—The Ride
Along with seeing Blue at the Raptor Experience, visitors to Universal Studios Hollywood can look forward to the new Jurassic World ride that opens in 2019. In preparation for the new attraction, the “Countdown to the Extinction of Jurassic Park—The Ride” was recently announced in anticipation of Jurassic Park—The Ride closing on September 3rd. The ride, which opened in 1996, will become extinct and allow evolution to take its course with the coming of the brand new Jurassic World ride that will be more immersive and feature the latest technology, since things have changed so much in the last 22 years!
