This post was recently updated with holiday details.
Today I had the opportunity to check Universal Studios Hollywood off my bucket list. I had t-shirts made I was so excited. I love water rides so Jurassic World-The Ride was first on the list. I impatiently waited in line for a time to come up and I must say it was well worth the wait an experience like never before.
Special thanks to Universal Studios for providing me with tickets in exchange for sharing an honest review of Jurassic World-The Ride.
We boarded a nice size 25 passenger car boat upon take off it sailed us into a covered area which featured a large “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth” display. I was super impressed with the virtual aquarium that had a high definition screen and visibility to see the Mosasaurus enjoying a shark for lunch. Than a huge splash sending water over the tank into the car boat. I was completely spooked when we drifted alone in the dark for a moment.

The ride had a high climb and drops 85 feet yes my stomach was in my shoes. I have a huge fear of heights, but the ride was well worth the risk. I don’t want to share too many details and spoil your visit, but I will add how much I enjoyed the lush vegetation of Herbivore Valley part of the ride that featured a water-spraying Parasaurolophus.
