Raptor Encounter Lands At Universal's Islands of Adventure!
Get up close and personal with the stars of Jurassic World!
Brand new dinosaur encounter experience arrives at Universal's Islands of Adventure ahead of the release of Jurassic World.

If you've ever dreamed of getting up close and personal with a ferocious 'raptor, taking a selfie with a T-Rex or gazing into the open jaws of a triceratops, then Universal's Islands of Adventure is the place to be this summer! 

The roaming raptors are kept in a contained paddock, where you can approach for a selfie if you dare! Learn some cool facts about these magnificent creatures as you keep those fingers and toes at a safe distance.


Island's of Adventure has always been a haven for Jurassic Park fans, with an entire collection of film-themed rides and exhibitions dedicated to our scaly friends. Raptop Encounter joins the long-loved Jurassic Park River Adventure ride, where guests are chased and attacked by a T-Rex before plunging down a hair-raising 85-foot drop into a tropical lagoon. Fans can also enjoy the interactive Jurassic Park Discovery Center based on the Visitor's Center from the film, as well as the Pterandon Flyers Ride and play area for younger visitors. 


Today's news joins recent announcements from Universal on its Orlando ride expansions, including a brand new King Kong Ride and a partnership with Nintendo to create a range of new attractions inspired by our favourite video games!
