We got invited to the Grand Opening Celebration of Jurassic World – The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood this past Monday.
What an Amazing event. Wow! The New Jurassic World Ride is freaking Amazing! Love the new Indominus Rex & Blue Raptor animatronics. You also get wet in the massive aquarium scene. Such an incredible ride.
Such a Beautiful evening.
While waiting. We got to tried some tasty alcoholic drink and Shrimp spring rolls.
Universal Studios Hollywood ushered in its new mega attraction, “Jurassic World—The Ride” with a grand opening celebration attended by stars of the JURASSIC WORLD films and of the new thrill ride, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard along with the film’s Director/Screenwriter Colin Trevorrow and Producer Frank Marshall. They were joined by Ron Meyer, Vice Chairman, NBCUniversal; Tom Williams, Chairman, Universal Parks & Resort; Karen Irwin, President & COO of Universal Studios Hollywood, and Mark Woodbury Vice Chairman, Universal Parks and Resort & President.
Here’s our Grand Opening celebration video.
Inspired by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s JURASSIC WORLD blockbuster films, this spectacular new adventure features Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong reprising their film roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu. It soars to new heights with the addition of iconic dinosaurs from the movie, including the colossal Indominus rex and the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus.
The ride is actually more better at night.
Epic Mosasaurus aquarium scene. You get very wet!

The experience is further enhanced by the all-new elaborately themed “Raptor Encounter,” where Blue, the beloved Velociraptor from the JURASSIC WORLD movies, engages with guests in daring face-to-face encounters, along with the addition of two new realistic dinosaurs – Baby Raptor with her handler and a life-size, life-like Triceratops. A new interactive “Dino Play” area invites children of all ages to explore and excavate giant dinosaur fossils.
Costa Rican-inspired cuisine and flavorful Tiki cocktails served at Jurassic Café and all-new tropical Isla Nu-bar add to the dynamic guest experience while an array of souvenir collectible, limited edition and one-of-a-kind dimensional dinosaur sculptures from the Jurassic Outfitters store invite guests to savor a piece of this exciting thrill ride even after they’ve gone home.
