Written By Carlos Braga

The Jurassic Park themed area is highly sought after by fans of dinosaurs and the films of the same name. One way to get up close to these creatures is the Jurassic Park River Adventure, where you'll get a lot of adrenaline!

In this sense, the attraction is in Jurassic Park. This world of dinosaurs, in turn, is located in the Islands of Adventure, Universal Orlando Resorts park.

Through a tour, you will be able to know a little more about the friendly species of dinosaurs.

Finally, after a mistake, you and your group are taken to the restricted area of Jurassic Park and the adventure begins!

The Ride works like a water roller coaster. At first, the feeling is that you are going to get a little wet. Soon after, your impression will change.

By the way, this is an important point: there are lockers distributed throughout Island of Adventures.

In turn, they are important for extreme and water attractions. That way, your belongings will not be at risk.

For a person to enjoy this attraction, they must be over 1.07 meters. Therefore, the children will also be able to venture among the dinosaurs!

Attraction History

The Jurassic Park River Adventure opened in Orlando in June 1996.

There is also a version of it in Hollywood that is even well updated with the theme of the new “Jurrasic World” films. In this park it is called Jurassic Park: The Ride.

It's nothing certain, but we strongly believe these changes will be made in Orlando as well.

Jurassic World

It's pretty hard to comment on Jurassic Park River Adventure and not involve the changes to Jurassic World that were made in Jurassic Park: The Ride.

Despite being an area planned in 1999, with a 1990s theme, many visitors still love it.

As a result, Universal Orlando Resorts invested in new attractions. In summary, in addition to the Jurassic Park River Adventure, there are several other Jurassic attractions in this area of the Park.

  • Raptor Encounter: an encounter with a dinosaur, which is accompanied by its trainer;
  • Jurassic Park Discovery Center: this is an interactive museum, where you can learn more about the species;
  • Camp Jurassic: is an attraction dedicated to children, who will be able to venture out safely;
  • Pteranodon Flyers: this is an attraction similar to a cable car, with which you can ?fly? with a dinosaur;
  • Jurassic World VelociCoaster: Finally, a roller coaster scheduled to open in 2021!

How is the Jurassic Park River Adventure queue?

The attraction has a capacity of 25 people per departure. In this sense, queues do not usually take a long time.

It is common that you stay less than 1 hour to enjoy Jurassic Park: The Ride.

Therefore, the attraction does not have a single rider. On the other hand, you can make use of another skip queue.

Universal Express

This is the official Universal Orlando Resorts line-skip and works similarly to FastPass +, from Disney.

However, I do not recommend that you make use of it in Jurassic Park River Adventure. Queues last an average of 40 minutes, even in high season.

How is the Jurassic Park River Adventure route?

The trip begins in a calm way, where you can observe some calm species of dinosaurs.

At that time, some splashes of water may fall on your boat.

However, after a course error, you end up entering the restricted area of Jurassic Park. There are ferocious and dangerous dinosaur species there. Therefore, while the creatures try to catch you, the speed of the cart increases.

In the end, to escape a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex that appears in front of you, your cart collapses! That is, the speed of the cart reaches 80 kilometers per hour in a fall of 26 meters.

It's common for you to get wet at this point, but nothing compared to the Toon Lagoon attractions.

Some technical information about Jurassic Park: The Ride

  • Attraction opening: July 2019;
  • Capacity of people: 25 people per cart;
  • Attraction height: 26 meters;
  • Duration of the attraction: about 5 minutes;
