Awesome Commercial For Universal Studios Hollywood Jurassic World Ride Opening This Summer !

Universal Studios Hollywood just released an awesome commercial announcing the awaited Jurassic World ride reopening with new theming, special effects and Audio-Animatronics at Universal Studios Hollywood this summer. Don't miss the last seconds of it, showing a scene of the ride as Universal did something very smart to bring to life one of the creatures, which wouldn't have been possible with Audio-Animatronics.

The new story line takes place within the Jurassic World parrk on the day of the escape of the Indominus Rex and the ride introduce several new dinosaurs from the 2015 sequels of the franchise. Guests will navigate lush environs of dense vegetation, traversing new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. The adventure will culminate when a ferocious dino-battle sends the rafts down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape. The new version of the ride also includes a makeover of the iconic entry gate, now “illuminated with billowing flames.”

If you've watched already the commercial then you can read below - if not, watch out for spoilers!

But where Universal has been smart is to find a way to include “the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus, which will mesmerize riders in her natural habitat from behind a 3-million-gallon glass encased aquarium observatory tank”.

What Universal apparently did is to use the same projection technique that was used in the King Kong or Fast and Furious attractions, i.e a long tunnel with screens on both side to give the guests the illusion they're going through a giagantic aquarium in which they'll meet with the Mosasaurus sea monster. And it's an even more brilliant idea than for the King Kong or Fast and Furious rides because here, as it is a flume ride, it will look more natural and believable than going through a Pacific island jungle to meet Kong.

I think that the ride will be much much better than its previous Jurassic Park version and i can't wait for its opening!
