Universal Studios Hollywood to Replace Jurassic Park Ride

That's why it makes a lot of sense Universal Studios Hollywood announced today that the beloved-if slightly worn out-ride will be replaced next year with a brand new water ride based on the Jurassic World franchise! Universal Studios Hollywood is a unique experience that's fun for the whole family.

Park attendees can expect the new Jurassic World ride to feature "enhanced storytelling, lush scenic design, an entirely new color scheme and uncompromised state-of the art technology", claims the press release.

Catch Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom after it hits theaters June 22, and catch "Jurassic Park - The Ride" before it goes the way of the dinosaurs September 3.

Jurassic Park: The Ride, which opened in 1996, is a water-based attraction created to feel like a visit to Isla Nublar. The ride also entertained guests with life-sized dinosaurs- some more than five-stories high. For those who can't get enough of the original Jurassic Park: The Ride, an exciting boat tour of Isla Nublar and all the dinos on offer from the original 1993 film classic that culminates in an 85-foot splashdown, sadly, that waterlogged journey is coming to an end as the below teaser video explains.


The new ride, once opened, will pay homage to "Jurassic Park" and will be a reimagining of the film franchise for park guests.

Twenty-two years later-and after sending millions of guests back to the Jurassic era for menacing face-to-face encounters with such predators as Stegosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Dilophosaurus, Velociraptors and the Tyrannosaurus rex-"Jurassic Park-The Ride" will become extinct in preparation for a new, next-generation experience that's even more immersive and technologically advanced. The associated Jurassic Cove restaurant and Jurassic Outfitters store will close at that time as well, to reopen along with "Jurassic World Ride", which will make its debut in 2019.

Watch the latest behind the scenes look at the new movie, in theaters June 22.
