A teaser released on social media an artistic rendering of what the dinosaur-themed, high-speed ride will look like, complete with steep hills and thrilling loops.

The coaster is expected to open at Universal's Islands of Adventure next summer.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard starred in 2015's Jurassic World and 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and will be seen next year in Jurassic World: Dominion. The trilogy follows three Jurassic Park movies released in the 1990s and 2000s.

Universal's Islands of Adventure is already the home to the Jurassic Park River Adventure and Pteranodon Flyers rides.
