Just in time to celebrate next month's official opening of the Jurassic World VelociCoaster, Universal Orlando is opening its Jurassic World Tribute Store.
The retail flex space in Universal Studios Florida now celebrates the new Islands of Adventure roller coaster with multiple rooms of Jurassic World-inspired props and merchandise. Rooms include the Control Room, the Raptor Paddock, and the Lab where visitors will find new "Mr. DNA" merchandise. Here are some first-look photos, courtesy Universal.
As has become custom with Universal's Tribute Stores, you will find some food items here as well, including Jurassic World VelociCoaster S’mores and cupcakes, chocolate dinosaur eggshells, and a "Dig-In" dessert jar filled with chocolate cake and frosting.
The store officially opens tomorrow. Jurassic World VelociCoaster is in soft-open technical rehearsals now before its official debut on June 10.

Great presentation, and a lot of 'stuff' to buy that you can't get anywhere else in the park.
I would have bought the chocolate dino egg for my grandson, but I couldn't see it surviving the 90+deg trek back to the Kong parking lot .... I'll have to go back after dark .... LOL :)
All in all, a very good experience. Definitely recommended.
VC was on and off today. The last 2 times I've been on it, there's been a technical glitch. But that's what this is all about, so hopefully by June 10th, we won't have a repeat of the Hagrid's debacle !!
A tip when using the single rider line .... the best time to use it is as soon as it reopens after it's been closed, or "at capacity" as the sign says. They reopen when there's a clear path to the lockers. The inside wait time from the lockers is averaging around 20-30mins.
