Don’t Miss Your Last Chance to Experience Jurassic Park The Ride

We visited as a guest of Universal

The summer heat is upon us, and it is the perfect time to cool down with your family at Universal Studios Hollywood to experience Jurassic Park – The Ride for the last time. The thrilling water ride is about to go extinct on September 3rd, but don’t worry…the all-new Jurassic World Ride will be coming in 2019!

With Jurassic Park – The Ride is one of my kid’s all-time favorites, and we went to Universal Studios Hollywood this past week to experience it for one last time. We rode the ride over and over again until we were thoroughly soaked! While on the journey, your family will feel completely immersed in the movie as you’ll see dinosaurs from the film and the ride ends with an epic splash into the water. (I recommend bringing a change of clothes if you want to experience the attraction more than once)

Before saying “good-bye” to Jurassic Park – The Ride, we had lunch at our favorite restaurant in Universal Studios Hollywood, Krusty Burger. Be prepared to have one of the best burgers of your lifetime when dining at the Krusty Burger. The meat is cooked to perfection, and the fries…oh my!

After having lunch, we bumped into our good friend Dora the Explorer and visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. My son, who loves Harry Potter brought his wand on our trip and got to experience the Incendio fire-making spell and the Alohomara unlocking spell for the first time.

Next, we stopped by Universal Plaza to have a quick meet and greet with Po and Tigress from Kung Fu Panda. We got to capture a photo and give a big hug to our favorite beloved characters from the film. While in the plaza, we couldn’t resist getting a small taste of the authentic Asian fare being served at Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop.

We ended our day by doing one of our favorite experiences – the world-famous Studio Tour. While on the tour we got to learn about the history behind the making of so many of our favorite movies, see movie props and my favorite of watching King Kong save us!

Don’t miss bringing your family to Universal Studios Hollywood this summer to experience Jurassic Park – The Ride before it disappears on September 3rd. Tickets are currently available online, and I recommend upgrading to the VIP experience so that your family won’t have to spend too much time waiting in lines and can get the most out of your experience at Universal Studios Hollywood.
