    Re: Jurassic Park Final Drop Nitpicky Issue

    The T-Rex head started having problems many years after that ( borderline funny ) incident with hot hydraulic fluid bring squirted on people.* Although I can't quote you the exact years, I recall the leak issue being in the first year and seeing that T-Rex head working fine for about a decade after that. Only in recent trips there I've taken in the last 4-5 years have I heard myself, members of my party and other park-goers constantly commenting about "Didn't that T-Rex used to be recessed farther back in the dark before it came out?" To hear that many people all asking the same question makes me think that it's not a mis-perception. There's got to be something to it. I think a lot of us remember that thing being further back up in the dark then coming out at you.

    * As I recall, in the opening days of the ride people were passing the Dilophosaurs ( aka - Spitters ) who would shake their neck frills and spit water on them. Customers would expect it to be poison like in the movie but of course it was just water. ....except for that one day that they got scalding hot hydraulic fluid instead, and then yeah... That was probably a pretty miserable time to be on the ride, trapped on a boat until you could get to medical attention.

    Re: Jurassic Park Final Drop Nitpicky Issue

    I personally think that while the ride has problems with hiding certain AA parts (seeing the fact that some dinos are built half way), the first t-rex (I think?) you barely miss, and the main t-rex being barely hidden (in all of your opinions). I think it's a better ride in general compared to the one in Orlando. Then again I've ridden on the one in Orlando probably over hundred times by now.

    In the one in Orlando, it isn't even hidden. Occasionally, there is a little fog, but besides that the T-Rex is in perfect view, well lit, and you see it not moving for quite awhile until you finally approach it and get closer. Definitely ruins the surprise.

    You have to remember you are looking for these things. The average tourist doesn't notice seeing AA parts, etc.
    "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

    They'll notice... but it won't register to them in the same way we notice things. Most likely they'll feel that something wasn't quite right but won't be able to explain why.

    Re: Jurassic Park Final Drop Nitpicky Issue

    On a recent trip down the Jurassic River, we noticed an increase in the stomping noises, timed with the T-Rex approaching the boat, as if to communicate that, "okay, I'm walking towards you."

    No waterfall; no fog. Just a monster that was in full view.

    So seeing him? Now it's like, "you can't avoid me!"

    Peace,
