Indoor All ages omnimover style ride with animatronics.
There ya go.
I'm still holding out hope they'll build one that starts in the Discovery Center first floor like the old rumors.
It is unfair to have the only dinosaur ride end in a very scary steep flume drop when little kids love dinosaurs too.
I mean, sure. In a perfect world, that's my dream scenario. I don't think there's any chance of that happening, either in IOA's land or in a theoretical JW land in another park.
Discovery River Boats??? Where was that located in AK?
It went all around the waterways around the Tree of Life. It was only open for a few years
YAAASSSS!!! Peach. I'm tired of seeing those plastic dinosaur heads with a random jeep in front of it. Barley anyone wants a picture with it and it's a bad filler for the section. It's like they just don't know what to do with the area, but on this forum there are so many ideas just being tossed. JP needs to get it together.
Someone please retheme the entire JP area by sketching it all out and designing nice scenic portions that are barren right now. I would print out the entire JP area and sketch onto it rock work, metal feces, and modern buildings and attracting ideas that are being thrown around here to make a nice and cut throat JP area.
Sketching it out like making rough drawings of a new JP area.
I wouldn't count on them demolishing JP - even if a third gate embraces JW.
Last I heard JPRA should get a real makeover in spirit of JP 25th, and in time for JW2 crowds.
I would never want JP to be demolished just something that would look like refurb concept art for the area.
If they can replicate the same "magic" that Jurassic Park has, I would be hesitant, but would support it and think it would come out pretty great.
I honestly want to believe it, but at this point; Skepticalism is high on my end for it to happen.
And the ride vehicles are gryospheres, BOOM!
I can't see it either. If Universal could be prepared to keep ET to keep Spielberg happy then I can see the same thing for JP. JPRA is also a crazy expensive ride.
I agree with everyone there's so much missed potential here and it's my chief frustration with Uni,,,they hold the rights to 2 of the hottest properties going, Marvel and JP and they're not acting fast enough.
I'd love more like the raptor encounter...giving the area of the park some energy
The idea of the dark Alien Encounter type ride could be absolutely spectacular, they could build 2 theatres, in a relatively small footprint
There may not be the room for a Flying Coaster?
Improve the damn AAs on River Adventure. Every year it goes down for its refurb and I hold out hope.
Dinosaur at Animal Kingdom is without question my fave Dino-themed experience in Florida
I never knew of it... I don't believe it is mentioned in the "making of" book. Hmm.
It had its budget cut until there was barely any reason for it to exist. Slow loading. And terrible guest survey results so they canned it within a couple years. It was like the boats at Epcot, but open air, and without a transportation reason to justify its existence. Originally was supposed to have a fire breathing dragon but they opted for the Dino to tie into Disney's upcoming Dinosaur movie. They still had a cave that breathed fire with scattered bodies of slayn knights in armor surrounding it. After complaints that it was too graphic within a few weeks the bodies were removed, leaving just a cave with a fire effect. All in all a fairly lame ride.
The boat docks are now used for character meet and greets. Usually Pocahontas near Dinoland and Baloo/King Louie between Asia and Africa.
