Very realistic dinosaur! This is not meant to be a thrill ride peoples. Its just the closest look anyone can get at a realistic looking moving dinosaur. Cant judge it alongside of Spiderman, sheesh.

well i didnt mind this ride and all the little kids around were amazed..they luved it! remember some rides in the park have to b aimed towards little ones...and i thought the dinosaur looked pretty real...they did a good job. i agree that this walk through could b made much more exciting. i think it will be altered soon..

I only found this thing cool because of the animatronic triceratops. But obviously, 3/4 of you dont agree with me.

Umm, tree...tree...shrub, shrub, OH WOW LOOK ITS A tree, and a shurb. Then you get to the triceratops, which looks pathetic and all it does is sways back and forth. Boring, pass it up, unless you are totally and completely desperate for something to waste your time with.

Pretty dull, but its not supposed to be exciting. I give credit to the human trainer it has to be pretty hard to keep that routine up.

I think it is a neat thing to see once, as long as the line isnt long. The animatronics on it are cool and it almost seemed interactive.

The only thing i really found interesting and neat about the ride was the actual animatronics used on the Dino, besides that, i think it sucked, now what is done with it in Halloween Horror nights, well, that is awesomely done.

This is a waste of time really. When the park first opened, this thing would get hour waits just to see an animatronic tricertops thats good, but not as good as Disneys. Now I think the word got out that this thing is a horrible waste of time and you could just walk up to the dinosaur now. They even close it now in the non busy seasons. This really shouldnt even be considered an attraction. They should just put the dinosaurs along the main path in the area of the park and use the big space that this attraction takes up to build a real ride... like the Jurassic Park Jeep Ride from the movie.

The best thing about this attraction is during Halloween Horror Nights. The jungle theme, cages, and huge robots in the dark make one hell of a haunted house!

An interesting show, not a ride. Dont go to this if you are expecting a thrill ride. It is a decent AA dinosaur that you can get up close to. Younger children really love it. It isnt a "must" see at IOA but if you have younger children stop and see it.

Hmmmmm. If you like to stand in line so you can just see some more anamatronics...suit yourself!
