Dinosaur at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Dinosaur! This attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World just happens to be one of our favorite rides.

The ride starts off with a short movie describing what your mission is to be: go back in time to the Cretaceous period in a Time Rover vehicle and retrieve a dinosaur before the meteor that causes their extinction hits the Earth. This is directly against the wishes of Dr. Marsh, and Dr. Seeker gets in trouble because we are NOT supposed to bring anything back with us! We are only going to the Early Cretaceous for a peaceful tour.

Seeker gets us back to the late Cretaceous period however, and the adventure begins!

This ride is dark, full of roaring dinosaurs and is very fast and whips you around. Its likeness over in DisneyLand is "Indiana Jones: Temple of the Forbidden Eye" but that ride is much brighter, you can see the track your ride vehicle is riding on, and it loses much of the scary "where are we going" vibe that Dinosaur has.

Anyway, after the ride, you are so shaken up, you need the mandatory Mickey Head!


  1. Mmmmmmm Mickey Head! Even Gertie likes them.

  2. I dare you to show me someone who doesn't like them!
