Millions of years in the making, Jurassic World opens its gates at Universal Studios Hollywood

Inspired by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s JURASSIC WORLD blockbuster films, the new “Jurassic World – The Ride” at Universal Studios Hollywood features the film’s stars, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong, who reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu, and adds iconic dinosaurs from the movies, including the colossal Indominus rex and the giant aquatic Mosasaurus.

This new thrill ride captures the essence of the blockbuster movies and comes to life in collaboration with the award-winning and inspired minds at Universal Creative, the Academy Award®-winning special-effects artists at Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucasfilm, Ltd., Universal Pictures and acclaimed filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow and Frank Marshall.

In addition to the ride, an elaborately themed all-new “Raptor Encounter” is where Blue, the famed Velociraptor from the JURASSIC WORLD movies, engages with guests in face-to-face encounters, along with the addition of two new dinosaurs – a Baby Raptor with her Raptor Handler and a life-size Triceratops who greet guests outside the “Jurassic World—The Ride” entrance, further enhance the entire experience. A new interactive “Dino Play” area has also been added, designed to inspire children of all ages to explore and excavate giant dinosaur fossils.

Costa Rican-inspired cuisine and flavorful Tiki cocktails served at Jurassic Café and all-new tropical Isla Nu-bar add to the guest experience while an array of souvenir collectible, limited edition and one-of-a-kind dimensional dinosaur sculptures from the Jurassic Outfitters store invite guests to savor a piece of this new thrill ride even after they have gone home.
