Buckle up and then you are off on an adventure back in time. Bumpy is the word for this ride. You are thrown all over and the place and most of the ride is in complete darkness. Dinosaur is a motion-based simulator on a moving ride vehicle. 

Guests will be lurched forward into the time tunnel and rocked side to side with flashes of lights and thick smoke only to emerge 65 million years earlier in a dark forest.

The vehicle careens through the dark surroundings, while Dr Seeker relays instructions to his passengers via a “time-linked” radio. Cretaceous creatures honk and shriek from within the forest, and an angry pteradactyl with a large wingspan swoops over the Time Rover. In the distance an approaching asteroid lights the horizon, as the vehicle continues its quest to find the threatened iguanodon.

dinosaurFurther acceleration into the darkness takes the Rover through twists and turns across rocky terrain. A mammoth carnotaurus, that is a carnivorous, horned dinosaur with steak knife teeth pursues the vehicle through the thick vegetation. The rover bounces and bumps through the darkness, narrowly escaping the angry dinosaur several times. It is an on the edge of your seat adventure.

As the rover’s power levels begin to fall, the lightning and meteor showers intensify. Suddenly, a massive meteor destroys the rocky trail. In a final, desperate burst of speed, the Time Rover and its passengers find and snag their iguanodon before going back through time and crashing at The Dino Institute.

The ride is more startling for adults than scary, however for kids it can be very scary. You can take a look at the photos of people on the ride through the shop next to the ride. This is also the exit point.

This is a high-altitude, high-speed, roller coaster train ride for big kids, teens and adults. The ride itself is about a mile long, so be ready for a nice long ride!

The pre-show area of Expedition Everest begins in a remote village at the base of Mt. Everest, and then winds through a travel agency and a trading post packed with supplies. Continue through to The Yeti Museum and explore the artifacts that trace the tale of the Yeti and the animals that inhabit the Himalayas.

Climb aboard a railway car for an adventure bound for Mount Everest. Your trek across the treacherous terrain of the towering Forbidden Mountain begins with a few scenic twists and turns, then sets out on an ascent towards the summit.

From this panoramic point with amazing views across Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, you plunge into darkness. Returning to the light, you see that the tracks have been twisted into a dead end. As the wind howls, you realize there’s no place to go on this expedition—or is there?

Careening into the darkness, with hairpin turns you shoot forward and haved sudden drops on the mountain slopes in a race to escape.

But beware. There, up ahead… waiting for you… lurks the Yeti.

WHERE: Asia
RESTRICTIONS: 38″ or taller
PRICE: Free with park admittance

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Fastpass available. Due to the nature of the experience, service animals are not permitted on this attraction.

Kali River Rapids is an adventurous river raft ride for big kids, teens and adults that journeys through the rainforest on the Chakranadi River.  

Climb aboard a circular, 12-passenger raft and begin a 90-foot ascent past picturesque, lush jungle and jasmine-scented mists. Then drop into gushing geysers and drift under refreshing waterfalls.

The Kali River Rapids raft covers some choppy waters, and then there’s a startling change in scenery. Hazardous debris left behind by illegal loggers litter the riverbanks. A few infernos blaze through the landscape.  

While traveling down the river, the rafts encounter waterfalls – both going down one and going under one.  The raft spins, so it is impossible to know which side of the raft will get wet

As your raft floats under the bridge, beware the smiling faces that look down from above – they are armed with elephants!!!!! There are signs before boarding Kali River Rapids warning that you will get wet. You will. Maybe even soaked.
