Just like the latest Jurassic World movie, Jurassic Park Universal Studios within the Islands of Adventure section doubles as an action-packed, adrenaline-pumping journey through all of the thrills and chills of the prehistoric age in an uber-modern spin. From rides and attractions to eats and treats to shows and shopping, Jurassic Park Orlando will blast you back in time, bite by bite, in a way you’ll never forget!
Rides & Attractions
This Jurassic World ride takes flight aboard a Pteranodon, a prehistoric flying reptile that will give you a bird’s eye view of Jurassic World beneath its 10-foot wingspan (the average wingspan of an adult male Pteranodon was 18 feet long). You’ll swing a bit from side to side, but the flyers in Jurassic Park Islands of Adventure soar smoothly and gently – perfect for young guests. Proof of that, guests may only be over 56 inches tall if they’re accompanying a child between 36-56 inches tall.
Jurassic Park River Adventure
Where on earth could you ever climb aboard a boat like this one on Universal Studios Jurassic Park ride? On this another-world water cruise, you’ll begin by witnessing a precious stegosaurus scene, but then you’ll get caught up in the wild waters of this Jurassic Park water ride adventure past the currents of Jurassic Park’s restricted area that hides T-Rex and other dangerous creatures – oh, and then there’s the 85-foot drop you’ll come face-to-splash-face with. Jurassic Park River Adventure is one of the most mammoth water rides in Universal and you’ll want to catch this one.
