As I stated last week when Universal Orlando Resort teased a "major announcement" they're REALLY bad at keeping secrets.

Ok, so they're not bad at it... but they do announce attractions and new offerings well after construction begins and the projects begins to take shape.

Universal has been actively clearing land in the Jurassic Park area of Islands of Adventure and pilings have been put into place and plans have been leaked that show a roller coaster coming to the area.

Well, theme park bloggers may have uncovered the name of this new attraction as a patent was filed for the name "Velocicoaster." 

Which would fit nicely into the theme of velociraptors which were made famous in the Jurassic World film. 

And as if right on cue, today, Universal teased on their Instagram a photo of dinosaur eggs with the caption, "something is hatching soon."

This would fill the void of Dueling Dragons (Dragon Challenge) when those two dueling inverted coasters were removed to make way for Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

Again, nothing is set in stone as there has been no official announcement from Universal, however an announcement may be coming tomorrow when they make their "major announcement" they've been teasing.
