Twitter user @bioreconstruct has given us another pterodactyl’s eye view of the construction* on the unannounced Jurassic Park roller coaster (UJPRC) at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
*Up to date images of construction work.
PLEASE NOTE: Original captions for the photos below will be provided. This will allow you, the reader, to know what you’re looking at.
- Image #1: Current aerial overview of the UJPRC.
- Image #2: Aerial overview of the UJPRC.
- Image #3: Aerial view of, at centre, where guests will access the UJPRC. At left, exit of 2nd launch up into the highest point of the attraction.
- Image #4: Aerial look at part of the UJPRC. Brown scrims at rockwork theming in progress. Note the U-shaped path of caging in progress at right.
- Image #5: Aerial view of the station area of the UJPRC. Riders exit the station through curved caging at right and enter first launch. 2nd launch is under the station, exiting at the waterfront. On return, riders travel a U-shaped path of caging at left.
- Image #6: Aerial view of the station area of the UJPRC. Guest entrance/exit behind yellow crane. Maintenance in building top left. Riders leave through the curve at right, and first launch is after the building there.
- Image #7: Aerial view of current concrete wall work in the waterfront of the unannounced Jurassic Park roller coaster. Attraction access will be through this area.
- Image #8: Aerial view of UJPRC near Hogsmeade – Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
- Image #9: Aerial look at maintenance/evacuation stairs in caging at the UJPRC. Track here is returning to the station.
- Image #10: At top of this aerial photo is exit from the 2nd launch of the UJPRC. This area until recently was covered by a temporary bridge for equipment now has a temp bridge for worker crossing. At right will be guest access to the attraction.
- Image #11: Aerial view of where the 2 launches are in the UJPRC. Bottom arrow where workers seem to be adjusting track protection, possibly for caging to be installed here. Centre arrow at what seems to be an architectural feature in the station.
- Image #12: Aerial view of steep-sloped rock work forming in the UJPRC. This very recognisable theme will make it easy to remember where the tower crane was anchored.
- Image #13: Much of the first half of track in the unannounced Jurassic Park roller coaster is obscured and challenging to trace through in this aerial photo. Flow is from first launch (first arrow) into 2nd launch (2nd arrow),
- Image #14: Aerial photo with focusing causing the UJPRC to look like a toy or model.
- Image #15: Aerial view of the UJPRC site across from River Adventure.
- Image #16: Aerial look at the highest track of the UJPRC. Track at water level is returning to the station. Note the concrete forms for a retaining wall at lakefront.
- Image #17: Aerial overview of the UJPRC in Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
The Osprey nest which was made at the very top of the roller coaster, top hat section, has now been relocated, as can be seen in the photo below:
