Jurassic Park at Universal Parks Worldwide

After the Tribute Store closes, there are still many ways to experience Jurassic Park at Universal Orlando Resort and at other Universal Parks worldwide! Here at Universal Orlando, there’s an entire land dedicated to the franchise at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

The three main attractions are Jurassic Park River Adventure, which sails you through the park to encounter various dinosaurs, Pteranodon Flyers, a kids-only journey above the skies of kiddie area Camp Jurassic, and the newest addition to the park — Jurassic World VelociCoaster! This exciting coaster takes you on a journey through the velociraptor paddock at Jurassic World and is the first ride at Universal Orlando to be based on the latest trilogy of “Jurassic” films, featuring appearances by Chris Pratt as Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing.

Across the country at Universal Studios Hollywood, the Jurassic Park attraction got a heavy retheme at that park to become Jurassic World: The Ride. Featuring a combination of screen effects and audio-animatronics, the ride is still largely the same, taking guests on a tour through Jurassic World. But now at the ride’s exciting climax, you come face-to-face with the impressive Indominus Rex animatronic!

USJ The Flying Dinosaur

At Universal Studios Japan, a mirrored clone of Jurassic Park: The Ride opened with the park in 2001, and a flying coaster called The Flying Dinosaur lets guests experience the thrill of soaring above the skies with a pteranodon. It’s often described as one of the most intense coasters at any Universal park!

Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore features a unique take on the Jurassic Park River Adventure attraction, with a circular raft system similar to Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom rather than boats. There’s also a short Pteranodon Flyers-like attraction called Canopy Flyers which all ages can ride.

Jurassic World Adventure1

Finally, at Universal Studios Beijing, two completely original attractions were created for the park based on the newer trilogy. Jurassic World Adventure is an indoor dark ride that takes guests on a journey through Isla Nubar complete with an animatronic dinosaur chasing riders! And Jurassic Flyers takes guests on a soaring journey above the island, in a much more thrill ride sense than in Orlando or Singapore.
