    We ARE getting a new JP attraction. The Trike plot is much bigger than people seem to understand. And this is how Universal choose to expand the land.

    I personally wouldn’t mind a grey/blue scheme to go along with Blue

    Kong would’ve been a great replacement for the mummy at USF later down the line. But getting back on track is their any room for JP to expand around the lagoon for a water attraction? After the Jp coaster?

    They’re putting a coaster over the lagoon. Isn’t that cool!?!

    I keep thinking a mossy green/almost grey type track...Some earthy tone

    Hmmm that's interesting. What would the secondary/support color be?

    I can't decide if I like it or hate it. Blue track with white/grey supports would be fine, but the other way around? It might look ugly.

    Yep. My hope is more I-Rex related than raptor related. The "story" of the ride, even based on the layout, ties fairly close to the climax of the first movie.

    Your vehicle races off with the raptors and go through the jungle. The second launch is the "retreat" when the raptors join the I-Rex. You race along the streets of Jurassic World (ground pass), collect the T-Rex (helix), then bring everyone to the water (water pass.)

    I think bright gray track with really dark blue supports would look awesome, but it's not conventional and therefore unlikely to happen.

    Now I hope it is white, just so this clip has two meanings.

    I think it would be a nice change in color...but I also fear it would pop out a bit too much. I'd rather they try to keep the DC the focus of the waterfront.

    I'm not sure why, but I keep imagining this coaster having a beige track with bright orange supports. I think that color scheme would work well with the current JP land, but for JW, I think blue and grey would work exceptionally fine with the land.

    If we are going down the JW route the Discovery centre will become the much bigger JW Innovation centre anyway :grin:

    I would like to take the time to post this url for anyone who wants to see how this coaster might look given the "rumored" track layout.
    EDIT
    This layout is not 100% accurate, reading some of the comments the creator could have missed an inversion or some track element. How does everyone feel about this given color scheme?

    What are the chances we get animatronics around the ride? I could see at least some raptors in the rumoured show scene.

    I genuinely think putting an Indominus Rex towards the end where the track circles a few times would make sense. It would fit the theme of the raptors hunting, tracking, and circling their target.

    It could be a pretty simple AA as the ride moves so fast - but it would be a cool "ohhh no way!" way to end the ride

    And then eventually if the River Adventure gets the Hollywood makeover, that tracking the Indominus story would come to its conclusion their with the climatic fight with a Tyrannosaurus.

    Not a bad guess but apart from getting the directional part of the layout correct, a lot of the elements are far different. Imagine something that's not so drawn out and large, and far more snappy and forceful. You'll really be able to feel the element of speed on this ride.
