Universal Studios Hollywood's water ride, Jurassic Park — The Ride, opened its gates in 1996. Beginning as a gentle raft ride through the peaceful dinosaur exhibits including a 50-foot tall Ultrasaur, something goes terribly wrong and the river ride takes a turn for the worse thanks to a stray Parasaurolophus. As you are terrorized by raptors, spitters and the infamous T-Rex, you will also be bombarded with water coming at you from every side. Be prepared to get soaked... all the way down to your 'bones' with an 85-foot final splashdown.

Notes:
In 2003, the Final Splashdown was made adjustable depending on weather and temperature conditions. A new 'Wetter than Ever' experience was added in 2007 as 60-foot-high water geysers soak all riders after the final splashdown.

At the Grand Opening, Steven Spielberg was one of the first to ride this attraction, but asked to be let off before the 85-foot finale.
