This ride is very much oversold. It hardly lives up to expectations. I suspect there is much more that could have been done with this theme. Its fun, but only mildly entertaining. "Dinosaur" at Disneys Animal Kingdom does a much better job with dinos.

This ride is awesomely themed. I love the dinosaurs along the ride. The best dinosaur is the TRex on the last drop. And that last drop is awesome. Just could of asked to get a little wetter.

This is by far the best themed boat drop ever. Rather than the majority of these such rides which merely feature a lift a turn and a drop, this sucker has a storyboard to follow. The tour of the Jurassic Park compound is nice, and it helps to boost the capacity while providing nice views of amazing tropical plant growth, and huge dinosaur animitronics that are extremely realistic in appearence. The motion is smooth and the realism just cant be beat. The set up is nice, as you just so happen to float off course. The inside part is cool, and the building is a viewpoint that can be seen halfway to Kissimmee. Up you go with the mini-animitronics on the interior set, and then you have the T-Rex... oh, I almost forgot that this isnt just a ride through time, this is a boat ride. There has to be a drop, and this is one big ol drop! The drop may be the worst part of the ride. With as good as the creatures are, the drop is fairly weak... certainly the point that prevents a 9. I sat in the front this past trip, as I did three years ago. I didnt get very wet, well, at least half of my clothing was left dry, which, after sitting up front, is kind of a suprise and a disappointment. If you are riding to ride, you will be pleased, but if you want to get wet, go ride Bilge-Rat Barges or Ripsaw Falls. It is incredulous that such a good water ride is merely the weakest link of the best trio of water rides on earth. Bravo to IOA for yet another well-themed ride!

It was a great ride but it just seemed tame having just rided dueling dragons. Use the little farry thing to get across the lake and skip the other rides to get the best experience. Then go back to the others

This ride is nothing compared to what they say it is. All you do is slowly move around while these rubber dinosaurs move their heads up and down. The drop is really good, but the padding on the seat I was in came loose and I jammed my knee really hard on the way down. Nothing too special other than the drop, but Id recommend it to young kids.

Again a lot of theming...which is good. I liked the trick drop before the bigger one. The drop was fast and extremly fun. The drop may hurt your knees depending on where and how you sit. It only got me wet in the face though.

This is a pretty cool river plunge ride with great theming. I loved the dinosaurs, especially the part with the T-Rex before that drop. The final drop is very nice and will get you wet. Some of the dinosaurs can look a bit fake but overall they did a nice job. I enjoyed this ride better than Splash Mountain, another excellent ride of this type.

This ride is pretty good. Its not scary, but fun to ride a couple of times. The drop with the T Rex is nice!

Unlike some others, i like this ride. Its fun with good theming, and the end drop is really cool, its just that I hate that even here you cant escape the ridiculous lines!
