The Jurassic World Tribute Store at Universal Studios Florida is finally ready to open on May 27! The “Summer Tribute Store” as Universal is referring to it will allow you to enter through the iconic Jurassic World gates and purchase new merchandise in highly-themed rooms inspired by the films.
The three themes of the rooms include:
- 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.
In the final room with food and cash registers, there will be a Triceratops you can encounter that looks like it made its way over from the now defunct Triceratops Encounter. One of the coolest treats is a chocolate dinosaur egg complete with dinosaur inside for $18. You might be asking what the special gummy will be? An Amber Gummy for $4.95. Other snacks and treats include fudge, VelociCoaster S’mores, Cupcakes, Apples and more! There will be two Mold-A-Rama machines in the Tribute Store – one being a T-Rex, because it has to be a T-Rex.
The Tribute Store should remain open all summer until it closes to prepare for Halloween Horror Nights and the store for that event. Experience Jurassic World VelociCoaster, opening officially on June 10 at Islands of Adventure, and then head to Universal Studios Florida for the Summer Tribute Store!
