The Summer Tribute Store featuring Jurassic World has officially opened, celebrating the iconic franchise, as well as the upcoming Grand Opening of Universal’s newest attraction, VelociCoaster – opening June 10 at Islands of Adventure.
This is the first tribute store dedicated to an attraction, as previous stores were centered around events – such as the Holidays, Mardi Gras, and most famously, Halloween Horror Nights.
Guests will be able to explore 4 themed rooms full of Jurassic Park/World gear, such as apparel, collectible items, themed food and beverage, and more. Guests can also browse new collections based on Mr. DNA, the hit animated series – Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, and custom items made exclusively for Universal.
The 4 rooms are:
- Control Room: The first room transports guests to the Jurassic World VelociCoaster control room, where they’ll analyze a variety of dinosaur vitals while they shop new merchandise centered around the thrilling new coaster experience.
- Raptor Paddock: Those brave enough to enter the Raptor paddock may see a member of the Raptor pack as they shop the new “Into the Wild” and “Tropical” merchandise lines. “Into the Wild” features dinosaur-themed, neutral-colored items like spirit jerseys, socks and key chains, while the “Tropical” line features trendy tie-dye hoodies, beach hats and bright summer-colored items.
- Lab: See where dinosaurs were created and get a behind-the-scenes look at rare, authentic props that were used in the original “Jurassic Park” films. Here, fans can check-out the new Mr. DNA merchandise that includes stickers and tumblers.
- Gentle Giants: Guests can get up close with a few gentle giants, including a Triceratops, while shopping the all-new Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous merchandise. Guests can also grab a “human treat” with fun food and beverage offerings – from Jurassic World VelociCoaster s’mores and cupcakes to chocolate dinosaur eggshells and a “Dig-In” dessert jar filled with decadent chocolate cake and frosting.
