potential Universal Orlando new theme park names yielded some interesting news. No, it's not a new theme park name. But Universal has filed a trademark application that might be for the name of its new roller coaster under construction at Islands of Adventure.Searching the U.S. Patent and Trademark database for
Velocicoaster sure sounds like it could be the name of the coaster that's going to wrap around the Jurassic Park Discovery Center. Especially with those velociraptor logos on the construction walls surrounding the site, right?
Universal hasn't announced the project yet, but we know from permit applications, plus the obvious construction going on, that a new terrain coaster is coming to Islands of Adventure's Jurassic Park land. Most of its run will take place in the space between the Discovery Center and the Camp Jurassic playground, that was once home to the Triceratops Encounter. The coaster also will run behind the Discovery Center and across the edge of the park's central lagoon, extending as far as to the back of Mythos Restaurant.
All signs also point to the coaster having a Jurassic World theme and starring the velociraptor Blue from those films.
We will be in Orlando on Thursday morning for Universal Orlando's big press conference. Although we expect that to be about the planned fourth gate now under construction across from the Orange County Convention Center, perhaps we will get additional news about other projects including the Velocicoaster, too.
