Jurassic Park River Adventure

Jurassic Park River Adventure Review

Your excursion begins as a peaceful raft cruise on a mysterious river past friendly, vegetarian dinosaurs. Naturally, something has to go awry, and a wrong turn is all that it takes. When you enter one of the research departments, you'll see that it's been overrun by spitting dinosaurs and razor-clawed raptors. This is when things get plenty scary: straight ahead a towering, roaring T. rex with sharp claws and teeth the size of hams guards the getaway route. Just when you think you're about to become a Cretaceous period entrée, your raft slips down a tremendously steep 85-foot plunge that will start you screaming. Smile! This is when the souvenir photos are shot. Thanks to high-capacity rafts, the line moves fairly quickly.
