You are invited to come face-to-face with Carnivorous Predatory Dinosaurs at Universal Studios Hollywood. They gained notoriety in the Jurassic Park blockbuster movies and sprang to life in “Jurassic Park—The Ride” at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Tipping the scales at a hefty 750 pounds, towering 15 feet in height and 13 feet from tail to snout, the aggressive Cretaceous-era dinosaurs will each succumb to highly skilled handlers who adeptly guide them to within feet of guests in a specially themed area of the park, located adjacent to “Jurassic Park—The Ride.”

Highly intelligent creatures, Raptors—short for Velociraptors—are notorious hunters, who in recent years have undergone intense training by adept handlers as part of these unusual guest interactions. This Universal Studios Hollywood introduction marks their first West coast theme park foray with guests.

Each one of the Raptors displays intimidating eye contact and emits ear-piercing screeches to reinforce their predatory dominance. Their snouts alone measure nearly 20 inches and house 56 razor sharp, bone-crushing teeth. With curved talons measuring up to 12 inches on each of their 18 inch-long feet, Velociraptors are formidable hunters and theme park guests are advised to approach them with caution.

“Jurassic Park—The Ride” comes to life at Universal Studios Hollywood, inspired by famed director Steven Spielberg’s epic movie, where guests experience a wide array of living, breathing, prehistoric dinosaurs. A phenomenal interactive thrill ride, “Jurassic Park—the Ride” features a land where stormy skies are pierced by colossal, three-dimensional, five-story dinosaurs and a world where visitors discover that they have become prey for a terrifying T. rex. The adventure culminates with a breath-taking 84-foot drop down a treacherous waterfall.
