Jurassic World: The Ride

The Lower Lot, directly across from the foot of the escalators.

Opening Date
July 12, 2019

Universal Express and standby lanes offered. A single rider line is also available.

Rider Restrictions
Must be 42 inches tall to ride. Guests 42 to 48 inches tall must ride with a supervising companion (anyone 14 years or older). Guests 48 inches or taller may ride alone.

The Bottom Line
Formerly Jurassic Park: The Ride, the attraction is now upgraded with both the latest in technology and with the various characters and dinosaurs from the Jurassic World (sub)franchise. Take a boat ride in the fictitious Jurassic World amusement park, getting up and close and personal with such dinos as the Mosasaurus before flying off course into an encounter with the Indominus rex and rocketing down an 84-foot plunge. You will (still) get wet!

Intensity Factor
Appropriate for tweens and up. Loud noises, dark spaces, and terrifying carnivorous dinosaurs. The indoor 84-foot hill is not for the faint of heart but is over in seconds.

Crowd Patterns & Wait Times
The escalators feeds guests directly into Jurassic World, but the ride’s massive boats efficiently handle crowds. Expect to wait 15 to 30 minutes on slower days and 70 to 180 minutes on busier ones. Expect lower waits on colder days and higher waits on hot ones.

Length of Experience
The ride lasts approximately seven minutes, discounting any delays at unloading (not an uncommon occurrence).

What To Know Before You Go
The ride experience loosely draws from the iconography and events of Jurassic World, but viewing the film is not necessary to the experience. You will get wet, no matter where you sit!
