Jurassic Park River Adventure
Come board a river boat and behold the scientific marvels that brought
dinosaurs back to roam the earth. But be warned, stay on course or you
could encounter dangerous creatures. You'll flee from deadly raptors and
dodge venomous spitters. Then brace yourself! A rampaging T. rex is loose
and the only thing that will save you from his terrifying jaws is a 85-foot
plunge into total darkness. Strap down for the escape of your life, on
the Jurassic Park River Adventure.
Here's a once in 60 million years chance to pet a moving, breathing
dinosaur. Come join Jurassic Park rangers in a veterinary paddock, where
the dinosaurs are supervised. You'll tour the feed and control stations,
where the skilled rangers will teach you the family history of this
24-foot long and 10-foot tall gentle beast. You'll be astounded as the
Triceratops reacts to you with snorts, blinks, flinches, and even hooting
cries. Reach out and touch the past in ways you never imagined, only
at the Triceratops Encounter.
Towering over the treetops, the Jurassic Park Discovery Center welcomes
you to explore and unearth the miracles of science with hands-on interactive
exhibits and displays. In the center rotunda you'll examine the massive
fossilized remains of a T. rex. You can even join the activity in the
Nursery, where you might see a Velociraptor hatching from its egg. Watch
the future of science unfolding in amazing ways, only at the Jurassic
Park Discovery Center.
Jurassic & Pteranodon
Kids will unleash the dino inside them when they scurry through this
prehistoric playground complete with rumbling volcanoes and cascading
waterfalls. They'll explore secret caves and a mysterious amber mine,
clamber through dinosaur capture-nets, play on a variety of themed slides,
negotiate suspension bridges, make the ground rumble as they pound down
Thunder Lizard Trail, or join in a water-cannon fight in the containment
paddock. It's the most primitive fun on the planet, only at Camp Jurassic.
Eons ago, soaring silently above ancient forests with wing spans up
to thirty feet, Pteranodons stayed safely out of reach from even the
tallest Dinosaurs. Now they have returned. Come take a lesson in flight
over 150 million years old as you sit under the giant wings of these
gentle creatures. You'll cut through the wind and glide effortlessly
over the treetops of a prehistoric jungle at Pteranodon Flyers.
Since construction began, rumors about a "Jeep Safari Ride" pop up frequently. Presumably, this ride would recreate the Jeep tour seen in the first movie. While officials keep the secret, a lot of insiders say that the ride is still in development. As to when it will be made remains to be seen.
