    First Timer Indy Question

    I know Indy and Dinosaur (at WDW-AK) share the same track and Indy is considered a much better ride....but how do they compare as far as intensity?

    I am a little skittish regarding thrill rides, but do enjoy dinosaur. Trying to decide whether to ride.

    Thanks

    ^Agreed. But let's not tell them why. More fun that way

    Or the left side. (Try to get the middle.)

    But definitely go! It's awesome.

    Dinosaur is way more INTENSE. I think both rides are equally awesome, but Dinosaur is better with the actual AAs and setting yet Indy has a better queue and .... it's Indy! He's just awesome!

    Re: First Timer Indy Question

    As far as physical thrills go, they should be virtually identical. They share the exact same track layout, and I think the motion programs they use are quite similar. It's really just the scenery that makes Indy a completely different (and, in many guests' opinions, better) ride. I haven't been on Dinosaur, though, so I can't be 100% certain yet.

    Dino at WDW is tamer...I think

    Indy def tosses you a little bit more.
    If you don't like thrill because of dips or fast speeds,
    Indy doesn't have dips (per se) or high speeds (per se)

    My sisters love Indy, but when I took them to WDW for the first time this past summer, they hated Dinosaur, finding it far too intense. Maybe they're just used to Indy and Dinosaur came as a surprise, but they appreciated how Indy doesn't rely on stuff popping out at you out of the darkness, where Dinosaur does.

    I've been on both and think Indy is more intense and also a better themed attraction.
    Please wait while we imagineer a new signature!

    I don't think that's true. I haven't been on Dinosaur, but recently this topic was brought up here and someone posted this picture comparing the two's track layouts. They are incredibly similar, but not quite identical.

    Re: First Timer Indy Question

    i've been on both and would have to go with Dinosaur is VERY MUCH more intense. the AAs are actually scarier and has more scary moments. the only "scare" moment on indy is the "thing on the right of the jeep" (which you all know what i'm talking about, and isn't even very scary for me).
