Dinosaurs Are Alive at Jurassic Park
We all rode Jurassic Park. All 3 of us fit into one of the rows in the boat with room to spare. The ride is pretty tame until you get to the large T-Rex growling at you before you hang on for the 65 ft. plummet. The premise of the ride is that the dinosaurs have escaped the confines of Jurassic Park and you have to search and find them before they attack. Good luck!
The boy and I rode Pteranodon Fliers—the two rider swing ride. The line for this ride can get pretty long. If you have any issues with heights, this ride is not for you.
Camp Jurassic was a unique playground and we explored a bit.
The place we spent most of our time was the prehistoric field museum. The two story building hosts many dinosaur displays including a dinosaur egg nursery and museum quality replicas of dinosaurs. There are many interactive displays as well.
The most unique interaction came at the entrance. A handler was holding a “live, baby dinosaur” that moved and responded to your touch. Are you a believer yet?
There is a dining location on the top floor of this building, which is the same level you enter. The view from the back, near the restaurant is incredible, as it sits on the lake that is the middle of all the islands of Islands of Adventure. If we were to come here again, I would plan to dine here and get an outside table.
