Which vehicle has more intense movement: Dinosaur or Indy?

I know that the vehicles are similar.

Are the movements similar too?

I am pretty sure they are the same in movement. I would give a slight edge to Dinoaur, but just because its new.

The turns seemed a bit sharper. For all purposes, its the same ride.

The main difference between the two rides is the Dinosaur is primarily in the dark, whereas Indy has some dark moments but it is usually well lit.

I would say Dinosaur is the more intense of the two, because you cannot see the track and usually have no idea what it is going to do.

Yeah, I gotta give the edge to Dinosaur.

I just rode Indy recently and LOVED THE MESS OUT OF IT, but it doesn't have the element of danger that Dinosaur has.

These rides are my favorite at their respective Disney resorts. Indiana Jones is the better of the two, but Dinosaur is more intense.

Maybe its me, but I thought Dinosaur had sharper turns?

I haven't ridden the Indy one, but the DInosaur one hurt me in a way that I never dreamed. When I rode it, and had my hands on the rests in front of my seat, my left hand began to hurt, during one of the bumps. I just ignored it for the rest of the trip. When we came home, my left hand was killing me and was somewhat swollen. I went to the doctor and found that one of my ligaments in my hand had burst. I don't know if it was the way I was bracing my self or what, but needless to say, I don't think I will do it that way the next time I ride it. I have a lovely scar on my hand from the surgery to have it repaired that reminds me of my trip, LOL.

Both the rides use exactly the same ride system, so it's more the story and theming which will impact your ride.

They use the same ride system and have the same track and all, but Dinosaur does more stops then lurching forward, and you can't see the track at all so you can't brace yourself or prepare at all for what's coming. So I'd say Dinosaur is more rough.

They are both great rides; however I think Indy has made a better impact than its Florida counterpart. I never hear anyone talk about it, if Indy was in FLA it would be a huge hit.

Dinosaur is an awesome ride.

I love them both... something extra special about Indy, though. To answer the question, I think they are very similar but Dinosaur is REALLY loud. Love the ride but if they could turn down the sound just a little bit, it'd be that much better.

Yes, they have the same vehicle and track layout. Riding Dino last year, I was picturing which section of Indy we would be in at any given time. However, the movement through the environments is different. Indy has a 46" ht requirement, Dino's is 40". There's a reason. The movement on Indy is more intense, not to mention random. And that's coming after they toned it down repeatedly when it first opened. Dino is a scarier ride, but that comes from the atmosphere, lighting and audio, not the movement of the vehicle.

The rides do not have the same track layout. Indy actually has a variable layout that allows for 3 different variations. It is true that they have identical vehicles, but unless you can hop on a plane and ride both in the same day, it's really difficult to say which ride's vehicles are more intense.
