This is true, though this is more of a stock ride system I'd expect to be present in the fictional park, and honestly how many ride systems are that convincing? Why are the Indiana Jones jeeps so wide!? etc etc

I can't help but agree

This ride perhaps has the worst animatronics that I've seen in probably a few years. Some of the raptors looked fake, and I was extremely disappointed with T-Rex. I thought it would be so menacing, but this video proved otherwise.
Agreed! Those AAs are for lack of a better word, crap. The pacing and placement is terrible...what were they thinking?? It couldn't have been budget as it is so long. Especially in such a cramped park a more high thrilling AA packed raft ride would make more sense.

Yes in the novel there was mention for a rapids ride specifically.
