It wasn’t long ago Inside the Magic reported construction resuming on the highly anticipated Jurassic Park themed roller coaster at Universal Studios Orlando’s theme park in Florida.
And now it looks as though the construction on the roller coaster is continuing at a steady pace over at the theme park as Orlando Informer posted this tweet not too long ago with a photo of what looks to be a wrapped up giant raptor.

Though, the funny part is, and as Scott Gustin points out, the Jurassic Park coaster still has not been officially confirmed by Universal. So even though all signs are pointing to this themed coaster to be true, the theme park still has not yet publicly made a statement or confirmed this to be accurate.
