First named Countdown to Extinction before the release of Disney's movie "Dinosaur", this simulation ride travels you back in time to pick up a dinosaur and bring it back to present day.

For any fan of dinosaurs, this ride does a great job of getting you to feel like you are really in the age of the dinosaurs. While trekking through the forest to find your dinosaur, you come across several different types of dinosaurs as the meteor attack that killed the dinosaurs nears.

Danger strikes at the end, but your fate is in the hands of the scientist that sent you back in time for the dinosaur.

The ride is one of the most thrilling rides that I have ever been on that isn't a roller coaster. There are no high drops or crazy fast speeds, but the experience comes from all of the different twists and turns that the simulation leads you on.

Last note - make sure to place small children in the middle of the vehicle because the ride is a bit dark, and the dinosaurs throughout the ride do create one of the more terrifying experiences at Disney World.
