Jurassic Park Wiki

"Kayak down Isla Nublar's pristine river and see over 100 types of prehistoric flora and fauna. "
—Park Map(src)

Located on the north-eastern side of the island, the Cretaceous Cruise was an attraction which allowed tourists to kayak down an artificial river and observe several of the park’s plants and animals in a scenic jungle environment. The river itself went through The Aviary as well as various other habitats including Apatosaurus, Baryonyx, Metriacanthosaurus, Microceratus, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, and Suchomimus.

Invisible electrified fencing is apparently what was used to maintain guest safety in the attraction. However, not much is known about this particular detail as the attraction was only briefly seen in the 2015 film.


Behind the scenes[]


The attracion in the Jurassic World storyboard.

This attraction is heavily based both in universe and in real life on the Jungle River Cruise, a planned ride from the original Jurassic Park which sadly was never built or finished due to the ‘93 incident.

In an early concept, art and storyboards, the attraction was a boat tour similar to the Jungle River attraction at Disney World/land the "Jungle Boat Cruise.” The only known dinosaur that lived in the attraction during these concept stages was Diplodocus.
