Today we have a quick update from Universal Orlando Resort and the under construction, not yet announced, Jurassic Park/World coaster at Islands of Adventure.
Thanks to Nicholas for sending us some pics while he's escaping the frozen tundra of Canada.

Welcome to the all new Jurassic Park/Lost World/III/World/Fallen Kingdom/Dominion Coaster
Try hashtagging that one. =)
Maybe we're all off and it's a Poseidon themed coaster.
First I'm really seeing of this project, it's bigger than I thought, and this is just the early stages.
All workers should be required to do the Chris Pratt in the Raptor cage pose at all times
It stretches pretty far around the lagoon
Confirmed! DeBarge is performing at the opening of the ride!! (ask your parents kids)
Those are some rather large footers
And because why not, here's Hulk.
In case you missed it yesterday, be sure to check out our behind the scenes look (err, listen) all about the upcoming Secret Life of Pets attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. You're all going to love it!
Last night was the grand unveiling of the all new Jurassic World The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. The stars and media were out in full force to cover the opening of this new attraction.
Let's check it out!!

Welcome to Jurassic World
It's a bit warm but we're ready for Jurassic World
The ride looks amazing after dark
A brief opening ceremony (be sure to check out the video of the opening celebration below)
And of course Fireworks!!
Blue was also out to greet people
Chris Hardwick and Blue coming to a prom near you
Enough of the heat, it's time to cool down!!
As we mentioned last night, videos and pictured don't do the additions to this ride justice. You have to see it in person.
Some fun B-Roll sent to us from the park. Everybody kept asking if we were going to live-stream riding last night, we were under strict instructions to not film on the ride (although some others were). We like the good relationship we have with the park. =)
Even though we only saw it at night, through the magic of email (from the park) we also have some daytime images. =)
The Aquarium scene was AMAZING
The special love I have for you, my Baby Blue
Got a chance to say hi to Colton Dunn from Superstore. Super nice guy.
Bryce Dallas Howard
Our old pal Yvette Nicole-Brown
We of course had to take a look at Isla Nu-Bar
We'll definitely be getting these on our next visit to the park
We also got a chance to check out the new menu at the Jurassic Cafe
We did try the Guava Glazed Pound Cake and the Tres Leches Cake. Both were fantastic.
There's also some great merchandise to add to your Jurassic collection
These things are super cute
You can also get some collectibles
You're my boy blue!!!
A behind the scenes shot from our buddy Matt. Glamorous no?
Thanks to Universal Hollywood for having us out. We had a great time!! Can't wait to get back to the park and ride some more!!
Today we have a quick look at the "now open for technical rehearsals" Jurassic Park the ride.
Media Night isn't for another 12 days but we're glad to show off some pics of the ride courtesy of Andros.

Welcome to Jurassic World!
Only a 10 minute wait for Platinum passes. Otherwise, it's an insane 180 minute wait!
Ahh, so good to have you back!!
The new indoor portion of the ride
The ride has been getting pretty rave reviews so far
Still some things left from "Park", which is great!!
Could you always see the top of the show building when it was Jurassic Park: The Ride?
Anybody catch any other park references yet?
That's not good
Definitely not good
Oh, we should be safe in here!!
Danger, Danger, Danger!!
Welp, that's our preview. We will be at media night on the 22nd, we'll definitely remind you before then. Hoping we will be able to get some POV's, etc to share. We've been avoiding them pretty well so far.
Thanks for reading!! Have a great Thursday!!
