Restrictions and access

Two sentence insider summary
65 million years in the making, your boat ride through Jurassic Park will give you an education alright–an education on how to become T-Rex’s next meal! (Now that’s funny right there.) This flume ride starts out immersing you in the natural dinosaur habitat and ends with a plunge.
4 out of 5. The plunge is tall and very steep.
Just like Ripsaw Falls, the wait times here depend largely on how nice it is outside. On warm summer days the waits can be 75 minutes or longer. On other days the wait generally is not longer than 20 minutes.
