Step right into a Central American paradise when you make your way down to the lower lot of Universal Studios. The new revamped Jurassic World water ride is now open and it couldn't have come at a better time, with this scorching heatwave LA has been having this late in the summer, Jurassic World The Ride is where you want to be to cool off.
If walking around the park wet and sticky and giving everyone a peak of the goodies isn't in your plan for the day ponchos are available for purchase and of course you can always bring your own, but make sure to experience the ride. It's the same route and drops as before, but they've added some digital features and added new dinosaurs from the movie.
Hang around in the Jurassic Plaza for an up close and personal experience with creepily realistic dinosaurs, Of course none of us know what dinosaurs really looked like, but if I had to guess they looked exactly like these.
That long trek down the escalators is sure to make you hungry so stop by the New Jurassic Cafe for some Central American Inspired food. You can dry off from the ride and enjoy Roasted chicken, Grilled Mahi Mahi or a Vegan Pulled pork made of Jack fruit. The chicken was my personal favorite it was moist and flavorful and I loved the hefty half chicken portion.
Save room for dessert, sticking with the Latin theme they've got a guava pound cake, a chocolate macadmia nut cake, a tropical fruit plate and a tres leches cake that is phenomenal. The portion is rather large and shareable, but it's so good you may just want to get your own.
And to Complete the whole Costa Rican Vibe they got going on down there, head over to Isla Nubar for a cocktail or two. It's a full bar with beautiful tropical drinks made to order.
