The Mouse For Less Tips

  • Where you are seated on your raft will determine how wet you may get in the 85-foot plunge. Riders in the first row or two should expect a full soaking. If you don’t want to get too wet, your best option is to sit in the fourth row or further back.
  • Since Jurassic Park River Adventure is a water attraction you may want to consider riding it earlier in the day so that your clothes have time to dry out. Especially those traveling a longer distance home at the end of the day.
  • There are storage lockers (small fee) for any loose items you may be carrying. If you choose not to use them, be sure to hold on tight to your belongings, as there is no storage compartments in the ride vehicle.
