    Yeah, the ultrasaurs always had tails and bodies. :)

    I'm looking forward to seeing the refurbished dilophosaurus this weekend!

    On a sidenote, I wish our ultrasaurs were as vibrant as the ones at IOA. Ours are the same color as the rocks. :I

    ^ I've never seen him at that angle before. Looks like he's one happy dino.

    He reminds me of Littlefoot from The Land Before Time!

    Yeah, he looks like Little Foot a bit!

    I feel so damn bad for that baby Ultrasaur. I can't count how many times I've heard guests in the boat with me call him the (pardon the word) retarded dinosaur....very unacceptable but geez, he always DOES look awkward with his neck and mouth like that....

    They always had?? I don't think so I remember that not long ago there were cages there instead of the bodies... but anyways they must be refurb or retouched since as you can see the paint from the neck up and the rest of the body are different. The one of the body looks new

    Well the video was from '97 and the ultrasaur had a tail in it, but they don't show the baby at all. I didn't even notice the baby had a body until you mentioned it and I looked through my photos!

    Yeah, baby always had it. If there were ever missing elements, it was probably due to refurb.

    Gosh, look how amazing the ride used to be. Its a shell of it's former self....

    Amazing, smooth, and articulated animatronics, extra smoke effects in the uphill towards the raptors, and extra smoke for the two T-rexes. Gosh it used to be amazing.

    Interesting... though at some time it could have been possible that no body was present, you know this ride is in so bad shape that a "meh, no body, no biggie" from Universal wouldn't be unusual... When can we get a refurb?

    It's really not that exciting, to be honest. What you see is what you get.

    The movement for Parasaurolophus has changed a while ago. Due to complications and safety issues fixing her, they took out the very high and low limits for her. That's why you only see her pop out a short distance.
