Orlando, Florida: Blue, the popular dinosaurs from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World franchise are now part of “Raptor Encounter” at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort.
Blue is the researcher Owen Grady’s favourite velociraptor from Colin Trevorrow’s fourth Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, arriving in Theatres on June 22, 2018. Theme-park guests can come face-to-face with the clever carnivore but are advised to approach with caution.
With ear-piercing screams and scary eyes, each raptor has 56 sharp teeth, curved claws that can extend up to 12 inches from 18-inch-long feet. The aggressive carnivores are 12 feet tall and 15 feet from tail to snout.
Universal Studios Hollywood has also announced the water attraction ‘Jurassic Park – The Ride’ will see its last days at Universal Studios Hollywood, to make room for the ‘Jurassic World Ride’, which will open in 2019.
The theme park has announced, “Countdown to Extinction of Jurassic Park—The Ride,” a campaign to honour the exciting journey that will end on September 3rd.
Introduced into the park in 1996, the ride sent millions of visitors to the Jurassic era to meet threatening predators. After surviving for twenty-two years, the ride will disappear in preparation for a new generation attraction at the theme park.
