This is a POV of Jurassic Park The Ride or River Adventure at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Orlando Florida. Video includes some off-ride footage and POV in HD. Enjoy!

Jurassic Park River Adventure is a water ride that is based on Steven Spielberg's hit film Jurassic Park and Michael Crichton's novel. It is a duplicate of the original Jurassic Park The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. The Vekoma water ride was originally designed as the flagship attraction for Islands of Adventure. Throughout the queue, guests will be confronted by a series of televisions which show a video of the history of "Jurassic Island", a video showcasing various species of dinosaurs and a safety presentation. Riders taller than 42 inches (110 cm) board their boat which heads up a short hill and then splashes down into a calm river. A narrator can be heard throughout the ride through the use of hidden speakers in the foliage. Throughout the first section of the ride guests are surrounded by prehistoric trees which conceal audio-animatronic dinosaurs. Knocked off course, the boats accidentally leave their tour path into a back of house area where more dangerous dinosaurs are contained. Riders pass the Jurassic Park Raptor Containment building which is surrounded by a damaged electric fence before passing another boat which had crashed into the cement walkway surrounding the river. The boat enters the Environmental Systems Building which conceals a lift hill which takes riders to a height of over 85 feet (26 m). Throughout the building sirens continue to wail and dinosaurs emerge from the darkness. After a small drop of approximately 10 feet (3.0 m), the head of a roaring T-Rex pops out from the darkness ahead. The T-rex reaches down at the boat just as the riders plunge 85 feet (26 m) into the lagoon below. An on-ride photo is taken during the 85-foot (26 m)-tall, final drop. Photos can be viewed or purchased from the gift shop which features many Jurassic-Park-themed souvenirs. The 1,900-foot (580 m)-long ride lasts 5.5 minutes and can cater for up to 3000 guests per hour.

This ride is so brilliantly designed. Before you get on the ride, you're warned multiple times over the PA that there will be a big drop. While you ride the ride, there are multiple times where they tease a drop and it turns out to be nothing. The ride is also fairly tame most of the time, luring you into a false sense of comfort, and over time, you forget about the warnings of the drop, or just assume that the drop already came. The drop catches you by surprise not only because of the reasons I listed above, but also because it's a dark area where the drop happens, and you're distracted by the T-Rex. You could tell the people who designed this ride put a ton of thought and effort into it, and it shows. When me and my friends went to Universal for Grad Bash, this was the only ride at the park we rode multiple times, 6 times if I remember correctly. 10/10

The dilophosauruses should spit battery acid at the riders, that would make it even more like the movies. Have a triceratops ram the boat and give people whiplash. Also make an animatronic of a character and show him/her being eaten. Finally they should show Hammond hanging from a noose.

This was the ultimate dick move. It was hilarious how many people who got on the ride were exhausted and saying they were happy to just take a break on an easy water ride. I took that ride so many times JUST to see the look on their faces as it goes to shit.
