    The best at the Universal. Don't bother with raincoats - on Californian sun you'll dry within minutes. You will be wet though if you don't know how to choose your seat smart.

    Don't buy a locker here: The Mummy has free lockers for 90 minutes. Put your stuff away there and keep it from getting wet! Front row, right side of the boat is the wettest.

    Don't waste the 4 bucks for a poncho. You don't get that wet. Some seats get wetter than others but nobody gets entirely soaked. Animations are incredible and there are some really funny things too!!

    If you and your party are willing, try the Singles Line if your willing to break up your party to get on the ride. You will get on the ride way faster! :)

    The first group of dinosaurs outside looked worn out but once the ride goes indoors it improves. You will get wet, no matter where you sit on the ride during the last plunge.

    This is my favorite ride I have ever been on. Brontosaurs. Velociraptors. T-Rex reaching down to chomp you while you drop down a ginormous waterfall.

    Been here 10+ times
    Great ride for 1996. Now it needs a modern upgrade to the robotic dinosaurs. Still a staple of Universal quality.

    enjoyed the design of the one in Orlando better but still a great ride, highly likely you will get wet no matter where you sit

    In summer every seat gets drenched. Colder months sit in the middle and you should stay mostly dry.

    Sat on the back row inside seats and didn't get wet (sprayed maybe). Child swap area is nice and have 2 dinos to play with

    You will get wet. If you want to get really wet, sit on the left hand side. 😜

    Sit in the middle of the row in the middle of the boat , with luck you'll only get sprays of water, not soaked. I sat there and dried off in 2 min.

    If its too hot, make sure to ride this game first. Line goes down to 10 minutes after 5:30ish.

    The beginning was a bit boring but towards the middle and it gets real crazy. The drop is AWESOME!

    Don't get in a row with a fat person. They restrict the safety bar from closing all the way and you are then no longer secure on the ride. Very Dangerous.

    YOU WILL GET WET! And, if its January, you will also be cold.
