Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World Parades Through Universal Studios Japan

Dinosaurs and gyrospheres roam the streets of Universal Studios Japan as part of the park’s Spectacle Night Parade! The Jurassic World section of the parade showcases some fan favorite dinosaurs, starting off with a Stegosaurus in a flashing red enclosure and ending with a roaring animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex. The procession features a Parasaurolophus, as well as an infant Brachiosaurus and Triceratops being handled by Jurassic World employees.

In one exciting moment, three Velociraptors escape from their enclosure and run along the street, before being corralled by one man dressed as Owen and others dressed in Asset Containment Unit uniforms. Samples of Michael Giacchino’s music from the Jurassic World Soundtrack can be heard as the floats and Jurassic employees march down the parade path.

The dinosaurs used in this event seem extremely well constructed. The T-Rex alone has nearly full motion in its head, torso, and tail. Its extremely tall body towers over the gathered spectators and lets out some classic Jurassic roars as its glowing red eyes scan the area around it. The Velociraptors and Parasaurolophus are costumed employees, but still look pretty natural amidst the chaos unfolding around them. The parade also employs the use of “Parade x Projection Mapping” which utilizes state-of-the-art technology to project scenery onto buildings and transform the park as the event moves through it.

This new event at Universal Studios Japan was announced last October and debuted this month. Watch footage from the parade below.

What do you think of the new parade? Would you like to see it stampede into the streets of Universal Orlando or Hollywood as well? We want your opinions in the comment section below!

  1. Now that’s a how a puppet T Rex for the public should look! I was disappointed in the design of the Rex in the Exhibition when I saw it in Philly.

  2. I attended the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Event last night at Universal Studios Hollywood and Jeff Goldblum showed up to join the panel! (video is online at Universal’s facebook page). It was a really great event. Not sure if there’s enough room for the T-Rex parade at the Hollywood location, but it would be really cool.

  3. This. This is why Disneyland no longer has any meaning to me.

    At least I know where I’m going on my next vacation.

  4. Can someone please make a Jurassic Park resort full of animatronics like that T-Rex one? I’ll visit every year. Thanks you!

  5. Man this is definitely in the right direction Universal!! Now bring it here on both coasts! I’d argue that in Hollywood, they could roll it through the main st.. even for a short path! DO IT!!
