Fodor's 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 to float you into the Raptor Containment Area. Drifting into a research lab, you'll see that it's been overrun by spitting dinosaurs and razor-clawed raptors—and 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.

Not suitable for guests who are pregnant or who have heart, back, or neck problems. For people with disabilities: Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle; assisted-listening devices are available. Come early in the morning and/or use Express Pass.
