Jurassic Park: The Ride to be scrapped by Universal Studios for a new Jurassic World ride

Just like the film series it’s based on, Universal Studios Hollywood’s Jurassic Park: The Ride attraction is getting a reboot after 20 years.

The original attraction opened in the park in 1996 and brought park guests face-to-face with animatronic dinosaurs, but now that Jurassic World is such a huge hit and its sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is expected to follow in its giant footsteps, Jurassic Park: The Ride is going the way of the dinosaurs too.

“This next-generation thrill ride will be a fully reimagined iteration of the groundbreaking adventure, elevating every facet of the experience,” Universal Studios Hollywood said in a press release.

“With the introduction of never-before-seen dinosaurs, enhanced storytelling, lush scenic design, an entirely new colour scheme, and uncompromised state-of-the-art technology, the ride will capture elements never experienced within a theme park.”

And the name of the ride? You guessed it – Jurassic World Ride.

Don’t worry though, there’s still time to enjoy Jurassic Park: The Ride as it is now as Universal Studios has launched a new ‘Countdown to Extinction’ event that kicks off this weekend and invites fans to enjoy the attraction before it’s officially closed on September 3.

After that, you can expect to see the newly-revamped Jurassic World Ride open at some point next year, along with the Jurassic Cove restaurant and Jurassic Outfitters store too.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sees Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing respectively as they team up once again three years after the events of Jurassic World in order to save the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar from an impending volcanic eruption.

The film is released in UK cinemas on June 6 and US cinemas on June 22. A third and final film in the revived Jurassic World franchise is already in the works and has a release date of June 11, 2021.
