 Thanks to Universal Creative’s collaborated with Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) The Ride captures the realism of a variety of dinosaurs encounters. The colossal Indominus rex is thrilling, and the aquatic Mosasaurus is magnificent in her natural habitat viewed within her massive Aquarium Observatory.

 It’s an awesome ride, especially when the Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus create havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. When the Tyrannosaurus rex engages in battle, the visitors in their rafts plunge down a real treacherous 84-foot waterfall and make a Jurassic splash as they escape. Yes, you will get wet!
