While Universal Studios is home to many incredible rides and attractions, few can compare to the level of thrills and chills that VelociCoaster offers. Themed to the new Jurassic World franchise, Guests weave and bob around a few vicious raptors while speeding along an intense track. The ride opened last year and has been a big success for the Park. Recently, however, one animal decided the top of the ride would be a great place to call home while creating a bird nest to lay its eggs.

This fascinating sight was shown in a tweet from bioreconstruct (@biorecostruct), which you can check out below:

VelociCoaster Osprey seems to have eggs. The male flew away at sunset. As twilight increased she would pop her head up sometimes. Mostly only the tail feathers seen. At a nest above Dr Phillips HS stadium, across the street from Islands of Adventure.

Now we have known about this bird for a long time as it had called VelociCoaster its home for a while, but the fact that it has now laid eggs certainly suggests it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. The bird is specifically is an Osprey, which we had seen connect with the coaster while it was being constructed, making a home on the tracks. Now, that the ride is functioning, the tracks are a much less relaxing area for the bird, so it seems it found a less busy section of the attraction!

Feel the Rush of the Hunt.

Speeding through the jungle, rising high above the terrain, it’s the apex predator of roller coasters: the Jurassic World VelociCoaster. Now you can board your vehicle for a high-speed dash through the park’s raptor paddock. Feel the rush of the hunt as you race alongside these nimble predators, twisting and soaring above the land and water. Jurassic World VelociCoaster is Now Open at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
