2016 - New Jurassic Park Attraction - Rumor - (6/19/15) Screamscape sources have confirmed that the new Jurassic Park themed ride going into Universal Studios Japan for 2016 is better than we could have hoped… it will be a B&M Flyer. I don’t quite know how elaborate the themeing will be, but this sounds almost like a revival of the old cancelled plans once in place for Islands of Adventure that would have seen a B&M Flyer coaster built inside a giant Pteranodon Aviary structure.
So.... Universal Studios Japan is getting an awesome Dinosaur themed ride in their Jurassic Park area and IOA gets a King Kong ride in their Jurassic Park area... Makes PERFECT sense!
Oh, Japan... How you continue to do things so much better than any of the U.S. parks!

What if they went for an S&S Free Fly themed to the Pteranadons? Forget making it a kid's ride. With the way the Pteranadons are acting in the trailers for Jurassic World (as in murderous rampaging evil doom beings) I think it'd be more fitting to have a super insane ride to go with it rather than a lame kiddie suspended. Just my two cents.
I'm late to the party since we now know it's going to be a flying coaster... But yeah, I second your Free-Fly coaster idea! It kind reminds my version of an Avatar-themed ride I had for the new land at Animal Kingdom: Picture 1Picture 2
At least Universal isn't going with the simulator kind of ride and you will ACTUALLY be flying!
Well the good thing is that with those first week numbers for Jurassic World there will be a Jurassic World 2. I assume that IOA will capitalize in some way, I'd Iove to see another B&M winged coaster. I think that there is going to be another King Kong movie that was scheduled for 2016 but was pushed back which explains why they are building the Kong Attraction. I am super envious of Japan though I know that coaster will be sick!
Sorry we never posted back after our visit last month!
Anyways, the B&M Track is on site and visible as it looks like they'll be getting the long rumored for IOA Pteranodon Aviary B&M Flying Coaster. Pretty funny for a country that almost gets no big new roller coasters that they're going to get two B&M Flyers two hours and one year apart!
