Jurassic Park undergoing evolution at Universal Studios Hollywood
POSTED 14 May 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
Universal Studios Hollywood's iconic Jurassic Park attraction is getting a redesign, with the attraction reopening in 2019 with a Jurassic World theme.

Set to close on 3 September, the park's popular water ride – inspired by the original 1993 Jurassic Park movie – will be rethemed to reflect the newer Jurassic World movie. The new version will include all new audio-animatronics and special effects.

"This next-generation thrill ride will be a fully reimagined iteration of the ground-breaking adventure, elevating every facet of the experience," said Universal in a statement.

"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."

The original ride opened in June 1996 and was manufactured by Vekoma, with a design from Universal Creative. Following its success, duplicates of the ride were built at Universal's Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Japan. In 2010, Universal opened a river rapids version of the attraction at Universal Studios Singapore.

The latest release in the franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom comes out this summer. In recognition of the attraction, Universal has invited visitors to ride the attraction before its "extinction". A three day event launched over the weekend included giveaways, exhibits, special guests, and a screening of the original Jurassic Park.
