What possibly could go wrong on a peaceful boat tour through Jurassic Park’s collection of gentle, plant-eating dinosaurs? You’ll float outdoors through an impressive collection of Universal’s animatronic dinosaurs before... well, as Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm said in the movie, “Oooh, ahhh... that’s how it always starts. Then later there’s running and screaming.” Sure enough, the velociraptors escape, more meat-eaters are running loose, and, oh, is that a T-Rex trying to eat you? Hang on, because it’s all downhill from there.
A really fun ride. The whole experience is immersive, and the final drop is great. It has an abundance of animatronics, and it is a much, much needed non-screen based dark ride for the park. The animatronics look a tad dated, but they add up to an overall really good experience. I would say this is the best water ride in Universal. 8/10
Better than Dudley, but not as good as Splash Mountain, Jurassic Park is a must ride if you're willing to get SOAKED. The best way to cool off at IOA is standing in front of Jurassic Park when it drops. I love how the t-rex catches you off-guard and then you plunge!
A classic with a fun drop at the end.
My favorite water ride in Islands of Adventure. I agree that the animatronics are a little bit dated but the inmersion is theming and the thrills are fabulous. 9/10
It has great animatronics but its seems a bit too outdated! 7.5/10
The star attraction of Jurassic Park. The animatronics at the beginning aren't the best and seem dated but overall it's a great ride and even a little scary. Love the T-Rex and the end and that drop!
Best of all its the part whith the head of the tyrannosaurus, at the beginning of the game you can take pictures
A must do. The animatronics are a bit dated, but the theming, immersion, and thrills at the end are top notch. 9/10
If you don't count the Harry Potter ride, it's my favorite Islands of Adventure. It's fun and adventurous and the jurassic park music swelling in the background by the wonderful John Williams is brilliant. The ride is a blast and the dinosaurs still look convincing. A 10/10 for sure!
While a great depiction of the movie, this ride could use some TLC maybe connected to next year's Jurassic World.
