Jurassic Park

Boat ride

Opening Date:


Fans of Jurassic Park who long for a real-world park populated by cloned dinosaurs will find the next best thing at Universal Studios Japan. The boat ride featured in the book is recreated in impressive detail, although the only dinosaurs on show here are of the animatronic variety.

After passing through Jurassic Park's enormous gates, guests drift past several groups of gentle herbivores. Predictably, things soon go wrong, with a rogue parasaurolophus knocking guests into the path of the velociraptor pen - which (as in the movie) is anything but secure. After being terrorised by raptors and an enormous tyrannosaurus rex, riders finally plunge down an 85-feet-tall drop into a splash pool below.
