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. 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-drop finale. The ride closed September 3, 2018 for a Jurassic World redesign.
