    Question Dinosaur

    Hey,

    There were some things about this ride I was wondering about. First of all, when this ride was countdown to extinction what were the differences? It says online that "no significant changes were made to the ride" but was there a different story or pre-show or any changes at all made to the attraction itself? I was also wondering whether there are two tracks inside the attraction. I know you can choose whether to go right or left but are these two different tracks or do all the ride vehicles go down the same track? Thanks!!

    I don't know about the changes but i know there is only one tack and you CANNOT choose to go left or right. Where did you hear that?

    There are 2 different loading stations but just one track, thats why only 1 truck is released at a time.

    Countdown to extinction and Dinosaur are exactly the same. The difference is that:
    -the dinosaur you try to bring back is the one from the animated movie 'Dinosaur'
    -The name was changed to "Dinosaur" in May 2000 to coincide with the release of the animated CGI film, "Dinosaur." The name change was one of the first examples of the now-infamous "synergy" between the Disney parks, films and TV projects.

    there has only been minor changes like for example the taming of the ride to lower the height requirement to 40 inches..

    thats all i could find for now hope it helps
    Hopeful Fall '08 CPer!!
