This boat ride is spectacular. The queue line is very well themed, and this river ride loads very quickly. As the boat passes through the stone gates in the beginning of the attraction, there is some perfectly placed nostalgic music which helps set the mood for this incredible ride. The dinosaurs, although aging, are well done and the first half of the ride is perfectly well themed. The Raptor Containment Building is very impressive, and the T-Rex at the top is quite realistic. The drop is very good and perfectly timed and placed, and riders get sprinkled with some water. (Not drenched, unless you sit on the sides of the boat) Overall an excellent attraction, and one of the best at Islands of Adventure. Not to be missed!

I liked the theme and the dinosars and all. The drop was good but, I got sprinkled with water. If I knew it was going to do that, I would have stuck my hand in some water and flicked it at my face! They should have designed the boats like Arrow flumes where the water goes straight up, not to the side.

Its okay but it would have been better if they used real dinosaurs instead of those fake animatronic ones...jk. But it was pretty fun.

The dinos start out a little clunky - Universal doesnt seem to do AA as well as Disney. They get better once you get inside the building and the carnivores show up. Its merely an ok ride... until the end, with T-Rex and a socko finale of a wet drop.

I barely got wet! They should have designed the boat so it gives a big splash like other flumes do. The water seemed to just splash out to the sides and NOT way up and on top of you. I do give it a fairly high vote due to the awesome theming although a dinosaur spit water into my ear. It was fun.

A pretty good boat ride with some good dinosaur effects and a good drop at the end. The only draw back was that I felt that the ride was a little short. But overall a good ride with a great ending.

JP River Adventure is the best flume in IOA..better than Ripsaw Falls. First off it has the best theme..(Although i may be a little biased, JP being one of my favorite movies of all time)..the Dinosaurs look great and thats surprising too considering they have to be outside all the time and mostly in water. It starts of as in the movie..peaceful and quiet looking at non-dangerous dinosaurs..then u take an unexpected turn after being knocked off course. Now you enter a faster,darker scarier world as you enter into the building. The best is the raptors who triee to break through the chain link fence, the only hing seperating them from you. Dinosaurs spit water at you as you travel. then you begin you ascent and then you drop..nope..its a trick..a little dip fools everyone into thinking this is the drop and its amusing to hear the nervous people scream..then you head to the finale..the T-Rex. Hes massive and angry and your heading straight for him. Hes my favorite animatronic since hes so big. But you dont collide with this beast..instead you drops..and what a drop...it feels straight down and its in the dark..i didnt get wet at all but a lot of people around ,me did..overall a great ride..themeing and thrills.

Exceptional ride. This is the second best water ride in the park, and 2nd best water ride I have been on. The animatronics are great, and the drop at the end is incredible. Universal really knows there water rides!
