Walt Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Attractions, Dinosaur

Dinosaur is an indoor attraction that uses an Enhanced Motion Vehicle jeep to take you back to the late Cretaceous period in order to retrieve a Dinosaur before all known life forms are destroyed by a meteor attack. This attraction is a lot of fun, but is VERY shaky and can be very scary for small children.

The ride was originally titled “Countdown to Extinction.” The ride vehicles still bear the cTx name. This attraction uses the Ehanced Motion Vehicle that Disney created and uses for the Indiana Jones Adventure in Disneyland.
