Isn't that kind of the point of the Jurassic franchise? Suits treating them like attractions instead of animals...
Owen reacts to the Raptor being zapped in the preshow accordingly.

And the muzzles are meant for animal husbandry. That’s why the stable area has stools and farming equipment. It’s for administering medical care and other positive things.
Maybe they should add a disclaimer somewhere that NO REAL RAPTORS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS RIDE, ALL RAPTORS PORTRAYED BY ANIMATRONIC OR CGI FACSIMILES :)
I think you're getting a little too much grief for mentioning that people might not like it. We all know there's always someone upset about something at Universal/HHN.

Personally, I would have loved a post-ride screen mentioning a coaster train stalling and being.. caught by the raptors. :)
I know for a fact some people will not like the cage rattling scene with the head in the muzzle, (I've already watched 1 video where the woman recording said she felt kinda bad while viewing it) Now me personally I love the jurassic franchise so I know better, I was solely speaking on what some might find disturbing. The whole Peta rebuttal was just lighthearted fun.

Can't please everyone.

I know there will be people who say they feel bad, but Velociraptors are extinct creatures, this isn't like SeaWorld where they have actual live Orcas and other animals held in captivity and are also there to put on a show.

What about Raptor encounter though?

As a side note it's such a shame that Chris apparently doesn't voice Emmett in the 4D Lego Movie show at Legoland. We'd have attractions starring him at THREE different parks!

Isn't the whole point of that section meant to echo the scene in Jurassic World where the raptors are contained that way?

Getting more and more anxious to try this ride out. For those that have ridden, how much punch does the launch pack? So much focus has been on how great the pacing/inversions are but wondering how it starts
