Dinosaur, formerly known as Countdown to Extinction, is a dark ride EMV attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The ride features a turbulent journey through the late Cretaceous period, featuring prehistoric scenes populated with dinosaur audio-animatronics. Originally named Countdown to Extinction when the park opened in 1998. In 2000, the ride's name was later changed to Dinosaur to promote the Disney animated film of the same name. However, the two dinosaurs most prominently featured in the ride have always been an Iguanodon and Carnotaurus, which were both featured prominently in the film. Scenes from the movie also appear in the pre-show, to help the guests identify the Iguanodon as the film's protagonist, Aladar.Plan to see Dinosaur and other attractions that appeal to you using our Orlando travel planner.
This was good fun, reminds me a bit of the Indiana Jones ride in California. I do suffer from motion sickness but this ride was OK, even though there were a few ups and downs and jerks. Would I rush.... more »
A good ride to do first thing in the morning as it’s not busy. The ride is ok, very bumpy. Fun ride with great animatronics. No need for a fast pass. more »
Was expecting a disappointing version of Indiana Jones Adventure, but ON THE CONTRARY this is really cool. Great for teens and young adults, very bumpy, kind of frightening in spots. Maybe too much for little ones but a classic ride. Hope it lasts.
Dated. However still remain as entertaining. Last time went on was almost 7 years ago. Still enjoyed it.
