Jump into your Time Rover and go back 65 million years to try to retrieve an Iguanodon before the meteor strikes, wiping out the dinosaurs and — if you don't get back in time — you. You'll encounter plenty of other fearsome dinos during your trip back in time, and you'll be riding in a vehicle that bumps, spins, and jostles you throughout the trip, so this thrill ride isn't for little ones or anyone with back, neck, heart, or motion sickness issues. If you've ever been to Disneyland, you might find it interesting in Dinosaur is the same ride as Disneyland's Indiana Jones Adventure, just with a different theme. The ride vehicles and track layouts are identical.

My favorite ride in the park. Great theming and an intense ride make this an unforgettable experience. 9/10

Love this ride. The animatronics are great and the themeing is top notch.

There is nothing really wrong with the ride, but upon seeing the Indiana Jones type vehicle (from Disneyland) I was expecting more. Also, I don't think the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs actually hit them. The climate change finished them off.

Nice ride, but doesn't beat JP at IOA. 7.9/10

Such a good ride, with genuine thrills and a similar concept to Spiderman without the 3D screens. The photo has changed position so the photo has everyone looking the wrong way which is odd. But this is what I think Jurassic Park should have done with their ride. A really fun ride, and the final scare is brilliant!

I feel that this ride is a hidden gem, literally. You would have no idea there is a ride there unless someone told you or you looked at a map, with such a plain exterior. The ride itself is great, though I feel that there is a missed opportunity here for Disney to create a branded ride based on a recognized property. Anyway, when it comes down to it the ride is quite fun. 7/10.

A great ride system not always turn into a great ride. That is exactly what this is. It's overly bumpy and has blinking lights and in 2 minutes it's over. This is an awful ride.

Scary. Terrifying. Loud. Dark. FUN. One of the few rides at Animal Kingdom and one of the best. 8/10
