    That is true, but in a case of a big E-Ticket like Jurassic Park, a major story point is getting knocked off course and I don't think Disney would leave it the way it was. They'd get careless about other things probably.

    I used to love this ride when it had splash breaks, but now it is not as exciting.

    Re: What does everyone think of Jurassic Park the Ride at Universal Studios?

    I've only been on the Florida version. I was not that impressed the first time I rode it (in '07) because some of the AAs were run down. But the ride was in great shape on my last trip (May of last year), and I loved it. Still doesn't match the great dinosaur animatronics in Dinosaur at Animal Kingdom, but I love the T-Rex at the end of Jurassic. That's a boss AA.

    Re: What does everyone think of Jurassic Park the Ride at Universal Studios?

    Having been to Universal Studios Hollywood only twice in about 6 years, Jurassic Park is a MUST for me. It's a good ride overall, but the times that I went on, there was always some animatronic that didn't work.

    For instance, back in 2003, before you go up the lift, the two Dilaposaurs' from the first movie weren't there to pop out and suprise you, and the T-Rex when he is seen from above wasn't working that time. The second time, before the boat was thrown off-course (this was in 2009), the Stegosaurus didn't appear to make it feel like the boat was thrown off-course. Universal does need to work on fixing thier animatronics for the ride.

    Overall, still a great experience, and I still love the drop at the end.

    But I still love the attraction, and will ride it whenever the temp is above 75 degrees (F).

    So yes, THUMBS UP!

    Re: What does everyone think of Jurassic Park the Ride at Universal Studios?

    I have an annual pass to Universal and I go on Jurassic Park whenever it is warm enough to do so. I think it is a great ride, for where it is. It isn't Disney standards, but if it was it would be at Disney and not Universal.

    I have always felt a little bump or vibration when you are "thrown off course." The only time I didn't feel one was when they were doing maintenance on that particular dinosaur. That was a weird ride and I can see how someone that has never ridden the ride before would get confused as to what happened.

    The only time I had a truly disappointing ride was sometime last year. We were about to go down the drop and you hear the dinosaurs growling around you, the countdown going off and the waterfall in front. Just as we are about to go down, the waterfall parts and we see a giant black maintenance curtain. We heard the final loud roar and that was it. It was kinda pathetic.

    I like the Jurassic Park in the Dark that they have during HHN. Everyone on the boat seemed to like the strobe lights, jack o lanterns and Welcome to the Jungle blaring in there.

    Re: What does everyone think of Jurassic Park the Ride at Universal Studios?

    This is my favorite ride at Universal Studios. When I went it was a walk-on so I went on it about five times. The last time I rode it I learned of the joy of scaring others.
    Various exchanges with the teenage girls next to me included (I actually commented on everything, feeling like an honorary Jungle Cruise skipper, but these are the only ones I remember.):
    "Oh, it's okay. The middle seat is the least wet, safest seat. You'll be perfectly dry." Ride starts up. "Oops, I got it backwards. The middle seat is the wettest one."
    Shriek.
    "Aw, isn't that cute!" I point at the tiny dinosaurs eating the bloody life vest.
    Shriek.
    "It's okay. Those velociraptors are in a box. They can't hurt us."
    Box falls a few feet towards us (I knew this would happen, I'd ridden it before).
    Shriek.
    "The ride isn't supposed to do this, I swear. We were supposed to take a right turn back there. I've ridden this before, and it's supposed to take you near carnivorous dinosaurs that are behind glass. This isn't part of the ride. This is a real ememrgency. At least that one dinosaur can't get us. It was already in this building in maintenence storage. It would hypothetically be behind that wall but it can't get to us because-"
    Claw mark slashes through wall.
    Shriek.
    "You're safe as long as you don't touch its spit. It doesn't have the teeth to attack us."
    Dinosaur spits directly in girl's face.
    Shriek.
    We see the T-Rex.
    "Is that an animatronic? OH GOD IT'S REAL! WE'RE NOT GONNA MAKE IT!"
    Shriek.

    Re: What does everyone think of Jurassic Park the Ride at Universal Studios?

    I rode the ride for the first time in 7 years. A lot of it was out of shape. For example one of the dinosaurs in the entry weren't working. And the car that falls didn't fall. It seemed like a huge flop now since I liked it when it was in shape.
    MEOW.

    The jeep doesn't seem to fall during the off season but if you go during the summer, that effect will be turned on. However, much like the fire pit in Indy, the splash caused by the jeep has been toned down considerably over the years.

    Re: What does everyone think of Jurassic Park the Ride at Universal Studios?

    About it not being up to Disney standards;

    It is IMO better than every ride at DCA except ToT.

    JP is my 4th favorite water ride. The three beating it are;

    1. Splash Mountain
    2. Dudley Do Right's Ripsaw Falls
    3. Timber Mountain Log Ride

    I personally prefer the USH version of JP over the IOA one. I like the falling jeep in the USH version and also the T-Rex is hidden until right before the drop in the USH version also. Which version does everyone else prefer?

    IOA, mostly because of the aforementioned scare line that goes so well with the falling velociraptor box.
