In case many of you were not aware about the Jurassic Park: The Ride in Universal’s Hollywood had closed down around the simultaneous 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s arrival in theaters and is getting a massive upgrade. Refits have been going on with the ride to change it into a Jurassic World look. While many of us will miss the Jurassic Park aesthetic the new ride will see an introduction of new technologies that would otherwise replace the aging animatronics in the original ride. New introduction videos have been made staring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong with all three of them reprising their roles. Entertainment Weekly had the scoop on this subject.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong will reprise their roles from the gigantic sci-fi adventure franchise, playing Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, and Dr. Henry Wu, respectively, in an all-new storyline exclusive to the upcoming Universal Studios Hollywood attraction.
According to a press release, the actors “will shed light on their interactions with the dinosaurs along with facts and information about the imposing prehistoric creatures that first roamed the earth more than 65 million years ago.”
“Jurassic World — The Ride” will also allow riders to see the Mosasaurus in her natural habitat and will have two additional interactive components. The first, called “Raptor Encounter,” will allow the audience to interact with everyone’s favorite raptor Blue. Meanwhile the other one, called “Dino Play,” is a more educational experience, allowing young visitors to give paleontology a try, exploring and excavating some giant dinosaur fossils.
Jurassic World — The Ride arrives this summer at Universal Studios Hollywood.
