Comments for Universal Removes ‘VelociCoaster’ Name and Opening Date

    Might have taken it down because they put Jurassic World on there. Orlando hasn’t been confirmed for a change from Jurassic Park to Jurassic World yet as far as I know?

    Over the last few months I’ve seen the posts about this coaster and my thought has always been, “Has Universal become the steel mess that so many other parks (as in Cedar Point) have also become?” Hey let’s still a huge coaster over and around and above the guests and call it some “themed” named!

    By contrast we have seen how Disney’s Tron coaster is perfectly themed to the area and good deal of it enclosed on under a canopy, and the Guardians coaster in Epcot in totally enclosed. Neither looks like this jarring mess or a structure!

    Once again it shows the thought and story Disney puts into it’s thrill rides. We know Universal can do it as we’ve seen with Hagrid’s coaster and Islands of Adventure in general, so why do they continue to put these things up in the Universal Studios side?

    I think they’re going to move the opening date up, that’s why they took down the announcement. I live in Orlando and with the lighter crowds of late, I’ve been going out to the parks more frequently. I’ve been able to watch the progress of the build from the Hogsmead area of IOA. I think with the parks being closed earlier in the year and then operating at limited hours and capacity due to COVID, the ride build has progressed faster than expected. If they’re already testing the ride cart it looks like the ride will be ready by spring 2021 instead of summer 2021. Here’s hoping it’s sooner rather than later!
