Animal Kingdom – DINOSAUR!

Animal Kingdom – DINOSAUR!

This is a highly turbulent ride that takes you back in time to see a group of life-size, very realistic, Audio-Animatronic dinosaurs. Much of the ride takes place in dark surroundings as the vehicles follow an extremely bumpy track and travel at high speeds. For the most thrilling ride experience, grab a seat that’s on the outside of the ride vehicle.

There is a 40″ minimum height requirement.

Age: Attraction Review:
ages 2-4 While some young kids might reach the height requirement, most are absolutely terrified by the darkness, the scary dinosaurs and the jerky movements of the ride vehicle.
ages 5-10 Some kids enjoy Dinosaur, while others are incredibly frightened by the darkness, the scary dinosaurs and the jerky movements of the ride vehicle.
ages 11-15 Many pre-teens and teens consider this to be among the best rides in Animal Kingdom.

senior citizens Many seniors dislike the violent movements and the chaotic action.

Caution this ride is bumpy as you are riding on a rip roaring Time Rover trying to save a dinosaur from extinction. Since this ride is turbulent it is not for everyone.
