Islands of Adventure Update: Jurassic Park is About to Change (PART 1)

Jurassic Park is undoubtedly one of our favorite themed lands. The trees, the amber mines of Camp Jurassic, the sounds, the smells, and - most of all - the dinosaurs are all part of one of the most beautiful themed environments we have ever seen. That being said, this area of Islands of Adventure might soon change quite a bit, as recent rumors point to the possibility of the addition of a new roller coaster in the area formerly occupied by the Triceratops Discovery Trail.

While we know nothing about this project at the moment, it is clear that Jurassic World will soon take over this section of the park in some way. Join us as we explore Jurassic Park and the rest of Islands of Adventure.

This skyline might be changing in the coming years. According to some rumors floating around (mostly on InsideUniversal.net), the new roller coaster might partially invade the area in front of the Jurassic Park Discovery Center. While we are not fans of this idea, we'll wait and see what happens:
