Includes comparisons between the rides, and yes Dinosaur is pretty toned down. Not nearly as cool. Anyone know why they changed what they did? Its kind of an old video so some of you may have seen it already.

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

CDTE was to intense for the kids and Disney (Isner) wanted to promote the movie DINOSAUR!

Well after the failure of Dinosaur to become anything, (beacuse who really remembers the movie anyway. It was awful anddidn't do so well at the box office), why doesn't Disney restore the ride to CDTE?

This is a great little video, thanks for sharing.

Disney should, in the very least, get the effects back up and running properly. I don't have an issue with the story line. If they want to tweak it and plus the ride further I'd be all on board for that. The ride did open with the park and will be 20 years old come 2018. A nice freshening up would surely be welcomed.
