    Interesting.

    I don't think I've seen that kind of solid loading platform for a rapids ride before.

    The upside down vehicle that diverts you off course appears to be a more convincing transition than the original ride.

    I'm not sure a rapids ride is thematically appropriate for a Jurassic Park ride. If this were a real boat ride past dinosaurs, you'd be more likely to be in a boat as in the original ride.

    I was also wondering how a rapids ride would make Singapores unique. But it's interesting. I still prefer USH's though.

    But Singapores is longer. Not to mention that it's more in the outdoors than the others.

    Dare I say, I think it's boring. It's way too long. There are barley any dinosaurs in it. The animatronics are weak. I'm glad we have our Boat versions. Even the guys in the video say "this is boring".

    So, I managed to see this video, and I was definitely not satisfied. Oh, brother...

    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.

    And don't even get me started on the length...

    Well, all I have to say is that the Jurassic Park Ride from Universal Studios Hollywood is still my favorite.

    We have the better Dinosaurs, they have the better JAWS. Also I remember reading on a few of the Jurassic Park fansites that plans for the park in the movie had plans for a "raft" type ride in which visitors could traverse the park on.

    This ride has some interesting concepts, but not enough going on, especially since it's faster than the other JP rides. Those raptors look terrible as well. They barely move. Ending seems to come out of nowhere. Of course, the video is dark.

    Shoes and socks off? Is this normal for this type of coaster?

    I kind of think that the JP ride there looks unique but it could be done better. Like the T-Rex it could be more animated somewhat. I feel like this is one of my favorite JP rides (even though I never had ridden it)

    The experience of USS JP can only be summed up in song! n_n

    Also, does anyone know if there's a POV of USS Mummy out yet?

    EDIT: I've already found one! Track and effect wise it's a near carbon copy of Orlando's.
    Yet the plot is original and actually much darker. Being The Mummy it's already in the dark so it may be hard to see anything.

    Don't think of a gun as a weapon.
    Think of it as a third arm that magically
    shoots bullets!

    I can't tell you how much I wish USH had that BSG coaster!

    I'd ride that Cylon side all frakkin day long! In fact, I'm curious to see photos of what the Cylon and Human stations look like as I hear/read that there's a bit of theming.
