The official twitter page for the Jurassic World Live Tour released today the very first look at the Blue velociraptor puppet for the new show. The arena style show will begin it’s run this upcoming September.
In the 8 second clip below you will get to see the look of Blue and the smooth movements of the puppet itself. The style of the show and the puppets reminds us very much of the Walking with Dinosaurs arena spectacular that has been touring for many years. Universal and Feld Entertainment joined forces last year to develop the show and tickets are expected to go on sale shortly.
New York Toy Fair may have ended well over a week ago, but that doesn’t mean the reveals have ended! In collaboration with Mattel, we have the first look at some of the upcoming Fall Jurassic World Dino Rivals lineup!
These items are a small sampling of the numerous toys coming out later in the year, which includes multiple new sculpts, species, and repaints! Take a look at the lineup below:
Attack Packs – $7.99
The small Attack Pack assortment will see many great new additions later this year, including the carnivorous Mononykus which is the first fully feathered Jurassic Park dinosaur toy, and the adorable Mussaurus, once believed to be a uniquely small Sauropod due to only juvenile fossils being discovered.
Savage Strike – $9.99
The Savage Strike assortment will continue later in the year, and while its full breadth of species has yet to be unveiled, we have a tease of one of the new items: the Jurassic Park 3 Male Raptor sporting a unique non-film color scheme. While he was slated to release in film colors in 2018, the item was sadly canceled, but thankfully the sculpt lives on here!
Mega Dual Attack – $19.99
Hold on to your butts, as we have the exclusive first look at the Mega Dual Attack Quetzalcoatlus. This magnificent flying reptile is one of the largest flying animals to ever exist, and makes a fantastic new Jurassic World toy.

No details yet online – expected Fall 2019 release
Kicking off New York Toy Fair 2019 with a roar, Lego and Universal Brand Development have announced a followup to last years ‘The Secret Exhibit’ titled ‘Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar’! This new mini series will take place in 2012, three years before the events of Jurassic World, and have a 13 episode long run filled with dinosaurs, drama, but most of all, zany comedy only Lego can deliver.
Set in 2012, three years before the events of the Jurassic World movie, LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar picks up where the story left off from LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit. Newly hired animal behaviorist Owen Grady and Assistant Manager of Park Operations Claire Dearing team up on Isla Nublar to deal with everything the Jurassic World park throws their way. And “everything” includes runaway dinosaurs, ongoing construction to expand the park, tourists everywhere, unpredictable tropical weather, and an impulsive boss! Plus, a mysterious saboteur with surprising ties to the park’s past is on a quest to find a legendary treasure and destroy Jurassic World forever! What could possibly go wrong? Everything.
It’s clear that the mysterious saboteur will be none other than Dennis Nedry’s own nephew, Danny Nedermeyer, who was up to no good in the control room during ‘The Secret Exhibit’. That plot thread was left wide open, and while this series is no doubt not canon, I’m looking forward to seeing it all play out. The series debuts later this year, though an exact date has yet to be revealed.
Moving on from the mini-series, and to what fans have really been hopeful for, Lego have also revealed four new sets which tie into the ‘Legend of Isla Nublar’. One thing is for certain – some of these sets are sure to surprise!
Dilophosaurus on the Loose
Explore LEGO Jurassic World with Owen Grady and build his drone to look after the dinosaurs. Meet Hudson Harper, a kid who knows everything there is to know about dinosaurs. And build the market stall in the shape of a dinosaur head with LEGO bricks. But look out—a young Dilophosaurus has escaped and is creeping up behind Hudson. Fly to the rescue with Owen’s drone, fire the net shooter and capture that dinosaur. Every day is an adventure with this action-packed LEGO playset!
Ages 6+, 168 pieces, $19.99 (USD)
Baryonyx Face-Off: The Treasure Hunt
Rush to stop Danny Nedermeyer and Sinjin Prescott’s dangerous treasure hunt in LEGO Jurassic World! According to legend, there is treasure hidden on Isla Nublar and Danny and Sinjin have a map and old videotape to help them find it. But when a Baryonyx dinosaur thinks they are trying to steal her fish, they have to hide out in an old trailer. Help Owen Grady and Claire Dearing fix up the off-road buggy. Then drive with them and Red the dog to catch the bad guys before they steal the treasure!
Ages 7+, 434 pieces, $59.99 (USD)
Take a ride on the awesome new LEGO Jurassic World Egg Spinner with Simon Masrani and Allison Miles. But, watch out—there’s been a power failure and the mighty Triceratops has smashed through the fence and escaped! Jump in the buggy with Owen Grady and speed to the rescue. Dangle a carrot in front of the mighty dinosaur to distract it and save the tourist. There’s never a dull day in Jurassic World park!
Ages 7+, 447 pieces, $59.99 (USD)
T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle
Danger! Danny Nedermeyer is roaming Jurassic World park in his huge Dino-Mech on a mission to steal the treasure hidden in the Isla Nublar volcano. But first he has to face the mighty T. rex. Jump in the boat with Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, Vic Hoskins—plus baby Velociraptors Blue, Delta, Echo and Charlie—and speed to the battle scene. Fire the boat’s stud shooters at the Dino-Mech. Put the T. rex to sleep with the tranquilizer gun. You must stop Danny before he finds a way to smash into the volcanic rock and steal the treasure!
Ages 8+, 716 pieces, $89.99 (USD)
Yes, that is a large Tyrannosaurus Rex mech colored like the Jurassic Park Ford Explorer vehicles. Does it make sense as something in the Jurassic franchise? Not one bit. Will it be amusing to watch in the mini-series, and later own as your own personal set? You bet. Another curiosity is the Baryonyx sporting four fingers and a Velociraptor-style sickle claw. Whether that indicates it’s another hybrid, an error, or a cost cutting measure to simply use the Indoraptor’s body and limbs is unknown – but either way, it creates one weird but beautifully painted looking dino.
I absolutely love the sets based around the open park – particularly the Triceratops Rampage, which is something I would like to see more of (over vehicles). Rumor has it there is one more set coming this year, a massive collector oriented direct to consumer set based upon either the Jurassic Park visitors center, or Jurassic World Innovation Center. Many fans have been eager more accurate representations of the parks, classic vehicles, and set pieces – while these new sets may not scratch that itch, there is hope 2019 will still deliver for them as well.
The new Lego sets are expected to hit store shelves Fall of this year.
Stay tuned, as New York Toy Fair news continues to come in over the weekend, and as always, sound off in the comments below!
Just three days ago we covered some of the updates coming to Jurassic Park at Islands of Adventure, pertaining to a new roller coaster and Jurassic World re-theme – now even more concrete details have surfaced, revealing the (current) layout of the ride!
First reported by WFTV News, and then covered in greater detail by Alicia Stella at Orlando Park Stop, we have a great idea of what changes are coming to the Florida park. The layout was obtained by both parties by looking into permits filed for the demolition and construction activities planned for the park – take at look at the layout reconstructed by Orlando Park Stop in the image below!
The ride, as proposed, is a high-thrills multi-launch roller coaster which begins its queue down in front of the Discovery Center by the waterfront. Not much is know about it, other than theming will be kept to a minimum (more Incredible Hulk, less Expedition Everest) and will be Velociraptor themed – reportedly letting riders “be a raptor” as they escape from their paddock. Velociraptor’s are known for their speed, and this ride will be no different as it’s rumored to be the fastest multi-launch roller coaster eclipsing 73 mph.
As shown in the track layout, there will be a small show scene at the opening of the ride, which reportedly features a Raptor paddock. While it’s unknown if it will be themed off of the iconic paddock from Jurassic Park, or the one from World, most signs point to the latter. In all likelihood, this scene and ride is based upon Jurassic World when the Velociraptors are released from their enclosure to hunt for the Indominus Rex (“Hunt for the Indominus Rex” would make a great ride name now that I think about it).
Construction is expected to take about 1 and 1/2 years, gearing for a mid 2020 or early 2021 opening at the latest.
The majority of the ride will takeover the abandoned Triceratops Encounter plot of land, but will effect numerous other smaller attractions in the area, leading to some relocation. In my last article I talked about why I’m not exactly thrilled about this coaster (which sounds like a lot of fun to be fair), as I’d rather have an authentic and well themed addition to Jurassic Park which really transports me to that prehistoric island. However, I remain hopeful that Universal Creative will keep innovating, and perhaps add more show scenes and theming to this ride before it’s locked in.
Jurassic is Universal’s biggest brand, and it’s overflowing with imagination including inspiring adventure, iconic movie scenes, beautiful locales, and incredible dinosaurs to bring to life – the area could easily rival the Wizarding World, Avatar Land, and Star Wars Land if they really allow it to grow and thrive.
As for the rumored Jurassic World re-theme, it’s almost assuredly coming, although this coaster may open prior. However, as reported by Midway Mayhem, the construction walls are sporting the colder and modern Jurassic World themed key art as opposed to the brighter more safari themed Park aesthetic.
New signs have arrived at IOA for the Jurassic project. Interesting color and logo choice! Blue walls…Blue raptor maybe? 😉 And a logo generic enough that you aren't sure if it could be for Jurassic World 😉 pic.twitter.com/WFt503Uz82
Whatever the future may hold, one thing is for certain: Jurassic Park at Orlando Florida is evolving, and something new will be hatching soon. Be sure to sound off in the comments below, and as always, stay tuned for the latest news!
Jurassic Park is a staple of blockbuster filmmaking, awing and inspiring audiences of all ages across the world to this day – not to mention its huge impact in 1993, redefining what can be achieved with visual effects and paving the way for CG to become commonplace in today’s movies. Jurassic Park’s impact is long lasting, and wide reaching – but its name is soon to just be a distant memory, as Jurassic World roars in as the new permanent franchise moniker.
While it’s yet to be officially confirmed, the rumor mill has long pointed to Jurassic Park at Islands of Adventure for an upcoming Jurassic World retheme. Reportedly, Universal Parks teetered back and forth on the idea, considering Jurassic World for their upcoming ‘fourth gate’ in Orlando and saving Jurassic Park at IOA. However, Universal has apparently opted NOT to include Jurassic in any capacity within the upcoming new park (barring major last minute changes) and will put their focus on Islands of Adventure for everyone’s dinosaur needs.
Objectively, a ‘Jurassic World’ rebrand isn’t a bad thing (although I find the more adventure infused safari resort look of Park to be more unique, compared to World which reflects Universal’s City Walk) – it makes sense, as it’s the name the current film saga and merchandising all share. While Jurassic Park certainly isn’t unfamiliar to younger fans, World is the more relevant brand identifier at this time. In fact, Universal Studios Beijing is doing some incredible things with the Jurassic World branding – building a replica of Main Street, the Innovation Center, Aviary, and heavily themed innovative roller coaster that will cut through Jurassic themed mountainsides – check out the artwork below!
However, the plans for Islands of Adventure are far more limited – primarily due to the Jurassic Park land being blocked in by the new Harry Potter and Kong sections, both of which took expansion plots originally planned for Jurassic. This limited space has created the inability to create all new Jurassic attractions at the scale of other headlining properties, like those seen within the Wizarding World rides. As such, the roller coaster coming to Islands of Adventure (which has yet to be officially announced) is reportedly not a heavily themed coaster, simply putting the focus on thrills over an authentic dinosaur filled movie based experience.
In fact, you can learn a lot more about the upcoming coaster from theme park enthusiast Alicia Stella within this video!
While that video is a few months old, the information is believed to be accurate – and now work within the park corroborates it, albeit circumstantially.
Construction walls are up around the Jurassic Park/Discovery Center waterfront. Guests can not access the area from any point. The Discovery Center is still open and can be entered thru the top level. pic.twitter.com/rdQULcZepQ
Essentially, we’re looking at a steel coaster with numerous tight twists and turns to make use of the smaller area it can expand across. Its starting location will see the coaster launching and intersecting itself numerous times before it shoots out in front of the Discover Center, over the lagoon and then eventually loops back again. While the track layout is far more complex, the rough surface area can be observed here:
As stated earlier, the upcoming coasters theming is rumored to be minimal to nonexistent – which is too bad, as it was originally concepted as a coaster that would traverse through mountainsides, with the insides themed to amber mines. That idea could easily be applied to Fallen Kingdom’s volcanic disaster theme, taking inspiration from Disney’s Expedition Everest ride, all while using the current track layout as we’ve roughed together in this mock-up down below:
While these new changes coming to Jurassic Park are exciting as the area itself is in desperate need of a modern makeover and new attractions, it’s hard not to be a little bit disappointed by what’s been reported. I can travel to any park and experience a great roller coaster – but the Universal Parks are the only place that can truly offer a chance to step inside the diverse an exciting Jurassic World, and bring dinosaur thrills to life within state of the art rides, making us believe those animals are alive once again – and ready to eat us if we’re not careful.
If there was room for further expansion, I’d more accepting of a thrill coaster with minimal theming coming to Jurassic – but fans of all ages who love the films, or simply want a authentic adventure alongside prehistoric flora and fauna are sure to be left wanting more if the plans carry forward as is. Fingers crossed this coaster surprises, and infuses itself the state of the art dark ride elements for the ultimate Jurassic experience.

Almost one year after it was announced that Feld Entertainment Inc. and Universal Brand Development were joining forces to create a live-touring arena show based on the Jurassic World films, comes news on the new venture. The upcoming Jurassic World Arena Show will be holding open casting for actors, stunt performers, and more!

At the time of the announcement it was said the show would start sometime in the Fall of 2019. We now know the show will begin it’s tour in the United States this upcoming September. The exact location of the first show and the overall global schedule is still yet to be released, so please stay tuned for future updates.
In the meantime, the first open casting call for the show will be taking place this Thursday, January 17th, in Chicago, Illinois. They are looking for the following types of skills for the show:
performers, puppeteers, full body and remote operation and actors. Ideal candidates would be fit and athletic performers from a range of heights, ages and ethnicities, possess stage combat and puppetry or character costume experience in addition to training in one or more of the following disciplines: harness flying, parkour or motorcycle riding, freestyle trials motocross and tricks are a plus. Stunt training and experience with high falls is a plus.
If you’re not from Chicago, don’t worry! They will also be casting at Henderson Nevada on January 22nd, ans Culver City California on January 24th. At the time of this article (January 15th), there was a casting call held in New York City.
If you are interested and feel you have the qualifications for one of these roles, head over to backstage here or here and apply to be part of the casting call. If hired, rehearsals for the show will begin in mid-July in Palmetto, Forida.
Another thing to keep an eye on is the name of the show itself. While originally announced as “Jurassic World Live”, Feld Entertainment this past Summer also trademarked “Jurassic Live” and “Jurassic Empire” as potential show titles.

Walmart released a commerical during the Golden Globes this past Sunday for their new grocery pickup service, which allows customers to order groceries online and have it delivered to their car. By the end of 2019, Walmart hopes to have 2,140 online grocery pickup sites. The promotional commercial released features iconic vehicles from TV shows and movies such as the Batmobile, the Ghostbusters ambulance, Knight Rider Firebird, Dumb & Dumber “Mutt Cutts” van, Scooby Doo Mystery Machine and most importantly, the Ford Explorer from Jurassic Park.
“We not only picked famous cars from iconic movies we knew would be instantly recognizable to our customers — and launched the campaign during one of the film industry’s most popular awards shows — but we also worked with a variety of different Hollywood studios to gain access to these vehicles,” Messing explained. “This helped ensure the famous cars looked just like what our customers knew from the films, while demonstrating the ease, speed and convenience of the service and that it’s for everyone, regardless of what car you drive.”
Below, please enjoy the 90 second commerical from Walmart featuring the Jurassic Park Ford Explorer and compys!
