Dinosaurs in Singapore

The Sentosa Theme Park Blog has up a very nice on ride video of the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure - and the ride looks like a winner.

Granted, it's hard to take full video of the ride in the sense that the boats constantly spin, but you can still get a great feel for what it has to offer. I think that the small boat setting is much more intimate and allows the ride to feel more 'dangerous' than it's cousins. More of an on-you-own vibe than the boats seating 20 or so folks. The mist is crazy think, too!

The ending, which I won't spoil here, looks pretty nice, as they were able to still have a dramatic finish even with the new ride system.

The only downside is perhaps less special effects than on the other versions, but that's always hard to tell in video. There's some stuff happening in the dark that isn't perfectly clear, so that must be considered.

Hopefully some day I can ride it for myself to really see!
