The ride features the film’s stars, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong and some of the movie’s most notable dinosaurs; the Indominus Rex and the Mosasaurus.

Fans can also partake in the new all-new “Raptor Encounter” attraction featuring Blue, the velociraptor featured in the “Jurassic World” films, along with a baby raptor, a raptor handler, and a life-sized triceratops.

Children of all ages are welcome at a new interactive “Dino Play” area where they can explore and excavate giant dinosaur fossils.

There is also a Jurassic Cafe that features Costa Rican-inspired cuisine and a tropical Isla Nu-bar specializing in Tiki cocktails.
