Raptor Encounter Officially Opens at Islands of Adventure

An immersive and truly unique meet-and-greet recently opened at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Park Guests can now get close and personal with some of the park's beautiful velociraptors in the new Raptor Encounter, located within the boundaries of the lush Jurassic Park themed area (an appropriate setting).
The official Universal Orlando Blog just released some additional information regarding this new experience, including photos and a short video. Enjoy:

From the blog: I’ve always dreamed of getting up close and personal with a dinosaur. Now my dream has finally come true! Velociraptors have arrived at Jurassic Park in Universal’s Islands of Adventure! That’s right—starting this weekend, you’ll get the chance to see these magnificent creatures face to face in an all-new experience: Raptor Encounter.

The encounter is located between Camp Jurassic and the Jurassic Park Discovery Center.

Your experience begins when you approach a paddock where the raptor will be contained. You’ll learn some cool facts about the dino that you may not have known—like that an adult Velociraptor can reach upwards of 96 kilometers per hour in the open!

Then, if you’re brave enough, you can approach the nearly 9- foot- tall wild raptor for a photo.  But be sure to keep your hands and feet away… you wouldn’t want to end up being its dinner! Are you daring enough to meet this giant, prehistoric reptile? [...]

We plan on checking out this fantastic addition in the next few days. Stay tuned here on OTPN.
