Attractions Islands of Adventure Universal
Now Open: Raptor Encounter at Islands of Adventure
May 25, 2015

Universal has begun testing what may be the coolest photo-op in Orlando. Step back talking Mickey (which I find really creepy) and enjoy the awesomeness of the Raptor Encounter. It’s not hard to tell how the whole thing works but you do feel immersed in the wold of Jurassic Park and feel as if you are actually face to face with a real raptor.

My son, being 2.5 and a huge dinosaur fan could not get the smile off his face while we were meeting the raptor for the first time. I highly recommend checking it out, although it is still currently in testing and there are times when it shuts down completely. I was told it was open from 11-4 today but may very until the experience is completely open to the public.

  • Wow! That is very cool! I haven’t been to the Jurassic Park section of IOA in a while as Harry Potter has taken over but this is worth another visit!
