Enter the realm of dinosaurs at the Jurassic Park River Adventure ride in Islands of Adventure. This is a great way to cool off on a hot day in the park because you’ll certainly get wet during the final splashdown.
Board a large raft that gently floats you into the world of Jurassic Park. You’ll start your journey among some friendly plant-eating dinosaurs. But the tension builds as you veer off course into the raptor enclosure. The power to the fences is out, and the Raptors have broken loose. You sense them watching (hunting?) you as you enter the darkness of the Environmental Systems Building. And suddenly, there it is, a massive T-Rex coming straight for you! Your only escape is the dramatic plunge through the dark down to safety.
When it was built, the 85-foot plunge was the largest theme park water descent ever constructed. It’s an incredibly thrilling and somewhat unexpected drop. You will get wet—the question is, how wet?
A nice, soaking spray will hit you as you plummet toward the bottom. It will be just enough to keep you cool for a while as you explore the rest of Jurassic Park.
