Jurasic park ride April 2002

AGT's 8th grade trip was to Universal Studios and I was conned into being a chaperone. Here I am with my group going down the falls in the Jurassic park ride. You will notice an absence of GT who said he was feeling ill and sat out this ride.

Location: Universal Studios, Florida
Factoid: The ride goes through a facility based on the movie Jurassic Park and just like the movie something goes wrong. The ride ends as you suddenly go down a waterfall escaping an hungry T-Rex.
