First of all, the new Raptor Encounter officially opened just a few weeks ago, giving Guests the fantastic opportunity to meet a "live" velociraptor from a safe distance. Additionally, some of the stores in the area also received some new Jurassic World merchandise, including t-shirts, toys, and more. Let's take a look:
Entering Jurassic Park:
First of all, let's check out some of the new merchandise items now available in the area's stores::
Miscellaneous dinosaur t-shirts for kids:
Still images taken from the first Jurassic Park movies can still be seen around the store located at the exit of Jurassic Park River Adventure. Could they be updated when Jurassic World is released?:
Velociraptors are mysterious creatures. It looks like they can - in fact - be domesticated, though:
Most Guests thoroughly enjoy this brief-yet-amazing experience. Waits have been very high since the meet-and-greet officially opened, and the experience is not even featured on the map yet:
Is this located where Triceratops Encounter used to be?
Any HP or Hogsmeade pictures?
@ First Anonymous.
Raptor Encounter is where the Triceratops Encounter used to be. But it doesn't go far back to the three paddocks that were used for that attraction. It is located right behind the stone fossil "wall" of a Triceratops. The beginning of queue line for TE was used for this meet and greet.
The exit causes a huge traffic jam during busy times. People will think it's the entrance or just stop and admire. I love the addition but the entrance needs to be clearer to the guests.
