Universal just opened a brand new roller coaster. Here are 3 great moments from the Velocicoaster (yes, I rode it)
The Mosasaurus scroll at the end of the VelociCoaster
The barrel roll on the VelociCoaster comes in the final part of the Islands of Adventure Ride, so I thought about ending this feature and talking about how cool it is. But honestly, the Mosasaurus reel is the coolest thing about Universal Orlando’s brand new roller coaster and I would be remiss if I didn’t emphasize this point by highlighting it first. You’re on the move, near the water, with no shoulder strap on your back. It’s unexpected. It’s perfect. When I spoke to art director Gregory Hall about the ride, he told me it was “the best inversion I’ve ever ridden in my entire life.” So don’t take it from me – take it from the expert.
I don’t even want to describe in detail the exciting moment on the ride. It’s something you have to experience for yourself, but I think you will be surprised how smoothly even quick inverted moments like these go.
