I was not expecting the concrete wall blocking the view of the rocky area, launches and twists and turns.
Don't really like that now. Who knows what it is going to look like, but the view of the coaster train running through this, would've been great.

Yeah, I've seen a few pics on Twitter of the concrete wall that's going up around the first half of the ride.

It doesn't look great so far.

Presumably it's there for storytelling reasons, i.e. it's supposed to be a raptor enclosure.

But this is one case where I think aesthetics should trump storytelling.

Do you have a link for this? Can't seem to find any pictures of the wall?

Giant concrete walls seem pretty fitting for the JP theme
The building enclosing the original Jurassic Park shoot-the-chutes has a similar aesthetic style, so it definitely won’t be out of place within the area, in my opinion.

For the theme, I actually think it could look quite nice and quite fitting, personally. Besides, I’m sure Universal have got way more that they intend to add; they would never build a ride without taking theming and visuals into account!

I think we might be seeing quite a lot added to this steel structure. Considering some of the steel bars you can see from the main path have the cast signatures on, I image they'll be covered up. Totally going to have a window looking into it though like a zoo enclosure. Will be interesting to see how they manage to tie it into the rest of the area.

The more I look at this the more i think they’re going to theme it to the abandoned original Jurassic Park that features in both the sequels to Jurassic Park and Jurassic World. Think they could do a really good job of that.

I mean I could be completely wrong but I don't know if it will? I know it's silly to think of realism here, given the theme, but a glass window at a Raptor enclosure? Wouldn't they smash through?

Part of me hopes it's just a huge concrete wall, meaning everything behind it is a mystery until you're inside.

I am really hoping this doesn’t have OTSR cuz I believe it was attraction magazines saying this may have a similar train to Hulk
