Universal Studios Hollywood just dropped one of the best commercials for a new theme park attraction that I'ver ever seen. If you thought that the escape of Indominus rex in Jurassic World was bad, just wait until you see it escape inside Universal Studios Hollywood.
All these years raising a film student and now the scariest part of this commercial for Jurassic World - The Ride (to me, at least) is watching all that film equipment get abandoned. I don't care if it is a hungry Indominus rex. I'm grabbing a RED camera before I run for my life. Do you know what those things cost? (LOL)
The commercial also gives us our first look inside the redesigned attraction, which will feature several new dinosaurs from the Jurassic World films, including that escaping Indominus rex and the Mosasaurus, which will be portrayed inside its "three million gallon glass encased Aquarium Observatory tank" in a new indoor section of the former Jurassic Park ride.
Once aboard specially designed rafts, guests will navigate the lush environs of dense vegetation, traversing new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away from visitors. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. When the Tyrannosaurus rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new ferocious dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.
No official word yet on an opening date for Jurassic World - The Ride, beyond it debuting sometime this summer.
