Take an inside look at Universal's Jurassic World Adventure

September 20, 2023, 5:19 PM · Happy second birthday today to Universal's newest theme park - Universal Studios Beijing.

Universal's first theme park in China, and sixth worldwide, opened September 20, 2021. To celebrate the park's anniversary today, Universal Creative has released a behind-the-scenes video about the park's iconic Jurassic World Adventure ride, specifically, the scene where an Indominus rex chases the guests' ride vehicle.

Kyle Dembinski from Universal Creative said in the video, "The only way we're going to be able to convince the guests that a dinosaur was chasing them was to actually have the dinosaur enter the path of the ride. One of the golden rules of the theme park design is keep the show out of the ride envelope. We've had to go against that norm and actually bring it into the envelope."

To see the full experience, check out our on-ride POV of Jurassic World Adventure.

I swear the back-to-back China stories today are just a coincidence of the news and not an attempt to troll y'all.

That said, this park is filled with creative work that I would love to experience in person some day, with this ride and the Untrainable show leading the way.

Between this and the Disney park in Shanghai... yeah, I'm dying to do a theme park trip to China.

@Robert, you're likely to see the show when Epic opens, if the theatre being built in the HTTYD area there has anything to do with it...

Next time we go to China we really want to visit Universal Beijing mainly to try this ride. It looks amazing and my dream reno would be an expansion of Jurassic World into Lost Continent so this ride could come to Orlando. Probably wouldn't happen but I can't think of anywhere else this ride would fit in Orlando.

That's absolutely awesome, the Indominus chasing the ride vehicle down the track.

Meanwhile, at Radiator Springs, Disney can't get Mater to back up five feet.
