If nothing else try this one for a Dumbo like experience.

An okay ride, for kids. It's pretty much like Dumbo. I don't get why they chose Triceratops since they are not flying. Not a must ride, but it's fun if you have kids

Well-themed and you get what you see. In my opinion, visually more pleasant than most similar rides. The controls in my car did not function correctly for one seat but did for the other. Young children will enjoy this ride, especially since they are able to control the height. Others may find this ride a pleasant diversion but won't be blown away by it.

Disney must be in love with these types of rides since they always seem to have building one at each of their parks. Well, in a sense I can’t blame them since like Dumbo, it’s a very compact ride and it’s definitely visually appealing, fitting in with the whole, light-hearted dinosaur theme established in the area with the sleek, cartoonish dinosaurs soaring high above the ground filled with smiling kids believing they can actually fly. But just one comment- why didn’t Disney choose a dinosaur that could actually fly instead of the triceratop, a large dinosaur incapable of flight?

These rides will always immensely popular with kids, and this one is certainly no different. Some of these like Dumbo and Astro garner 20-30 minute waits, which simply is an outrage for this type of attraction in my opinion, but thankfully this was only a one cycle wait when I rode it since otherwise I would have never even considered riding these dinos. Still, it does suffer from fairly low capacity, but loading is pretty darn fast, even by Disney’s standards.

Inevitably this will be compared to Dumbo since they both are almost identical with a few differences. However, I slightly like Dumbo better simply because it lacks the nostalgia of Dumbo and it doesn’t look as appealing. Really, the only things this has on Dumbo are that it has a longer cycle and the ability to tilt the dinosaurs. The ability to tilt the dinosaurs really wasn’t all that noticeable, but I thought it was unique (well until I rode Aladdin at Magic Kingdom which had the exact same ability) for this type of ride. Honestly the vertical movement is much more enjoyable. The other point is the cycle. Dumbo is notorious for giving cycles less than a minute long, but this one had a decent cycle that I’d say was probably around a minute and a half long or so.

I would have never rode this with a line and I probably never will have a thought of riding this again since it’s just so dull and unoriginal in my opinion. Sure it tilts back and forth, but as I mentioned the effect really isn’t all that noticeable and the rest of the ride simply is nothing special or noteworthy like the many other great attractions Disney features throughout their parks. For kids at Animal Kingdom this is a must since it’s one of the few tame non-animal attractions they offer. Heck, even if I were to choose between Aladdin, Dumbo, Astro, and this, I’d take the first three before riding this attraction.

I like the look of the dinos, but I swear Disney single handly keeps the company that makes these in business. When you look at Red Fish/ Blue Fish at IOA all disney versions are just not very fun.

Simply an ok ride at the Animal Kingdom... one of several of these types of rides in the area, this one just isnt as nostalgic as Dumbo or as cool as IOAs.

This recent addition to the Animal Kingdom is nicely themed and fun for a ride of its kind, but it still is kind of getting old for Disney to keep adding these types of rides. This ride is very well designed, with the triceratop-shaped cars and the colorful center piece, adding to the fun atmosphere of the ride. One thing I liked about this ride is that it was nice and smooth operating... no flaws that I expirienced in the 20 times I rode with my younger cousin. But I do have one problem with the type of ride itself and Disney... when are they going to stop building them? You have Aladin, Dumbo and the Astro Orbiter in the Magic Kingdom, and now this one. Well, at least the little kids like to ride this, thats pretty much all that matters in a Disney ride. Id ride it if you had little kids with you, but other than that dont ride it.

Not a lot to say. It goes around, and up.... and even down. Its not a rough ride, which is good. Thats all I have to say.
