In Universal Orlando’s Spring 2015 passholder newsletter, the company announced new experiences coming to the resort this summer. New photo opportunities will be coming to Universal’s Islands of Adventure and a scavenger hunt game will come to Universal Studios Florida. These new experiences will most likely coincide with the release of the Jurassic World film and Minions film.
Starting in June, new photo opportunities with a Velociraptor will be coming to the Jurassic Park area of Universal’s Islands of Adventure. It’s expected the new photo opportunities will come on the release date of Jurassic World, but Universal Orlando hasn’t released any specific date. The newsletter contains no information about its location. Rumors suggest a new dinosaur photo opportunity will take the place of the old Triceratops Encounter, which is currently slightly under construction. However, Universal has not released any information yet, so it is unclear what is under work. More details about the new photo opportunities should be released as the film’s release date approaches.
Along with the dinosaur photo opportunity, Universal Orlando also announced a new scavenger hunt that will be coming to Universal Studios Florida. This summer, guests can pick up a game card at the Super Silly Stuff store (Despicable Me Minion Mayhem’s souvenir shop) and the Universal Studios Store (located next door to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem) and set out on a scavenger hunt with the Minions throughout the park. The new Minions film is set to come out in theaters on July 10th, so expect this new experience to coincide with the film’s release date.
