[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance A cross between a roller-coaster and a ghost-train style ride. Carries a 48 inch minimum height restriction.

The "Countdown to Extinction" attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom has been renamed "Dinosaur" after the new Disney movie of the same name, and following the installation of "Sue" in the exhibit hall. (Sue is the most complete T-Rex fossil ever discovered, that was bought by Disney and McDonalds, and which has been undergoing restoration in the Fossil Preparation Lab within the Animal Kingdom theme park).

The ride is a cross between the thrill of roller coaster and the jolting, twisting and turning of Universal's "Back to the Future," with the surprises of a carnival fun house.

Anyone who has ridden the "Indiana Jones" adventure ride at Disneyland will recognize the shuttle-craft cars and full-range motion technology.

The ride starts with guests being strapped into high speed vehicles, after which they are catapulted back in time to complete a dangerous mission to locate the last living Iguanodon, in an attempt to uncover the answer to the extinction of the dinosaurs during the Cretaceous period.

The three and a half minute frenetic ride has you dodging meteors, encountering and being chased by the carniverous Carnotaurus after an easy lunch before completing the mission.

Because the ride is so new, the cars tend to jerk around more than the smooth ride you get with "Indiana Jones," but this will most likely decline as Animal Kingdom gets into its stride.

Dinosaur is reached by first passing through the Dino Institute.

Parents take note that this ride is very intense, and has a height restriction of 48 inches, so will exclude some younger guests. As with most ride style attractions it's not recommended for anyone suffering from back or neck problems, or a heart condition.
