Disneys Indiana Jones and Animal Kingdoms Dinosaur ride are the same track layout

Did you guys know that The disneylands famous Indiana Jones ride has the exact same Track layout, ok maybe a smidge off, as Animal Kingdoms Dinosaur ride. Its true play a POV of each one with lights on side by side and see how similar the track layouts are!

Actually Dinosaur has the same track layout as Indy. Indy came first.

Goes to show there is more to a great ride than the layout --- Indy is multiple times better than Dinosaur, IMHO

Dinosaur is such a tremendous disappointment when you know its potential.

I've read that before. It confuses me as to why my son was able to ride Dinosaur last year at WDW but this year at DL, he is still not tall enough to ride Indy. He will, however, be able to ride Space Mountain, so I guess it's a trade off.

My thoughts exactly! Although, after riding Dinosaur my daughter exclaimed "I am not EVER riding that again" (this is the same girl who loved Tower of Terror, Splash and Thunder Mountain, Star Tours, etc., etc.!)

If she were tall enough for Indy, she might recognize the vehicle and have flashbacks to those "scary" dinosaurs - LOL. She was soooo bummed she couldn't ride Space Mountain in WDW, so at least she can ride it at DL in June

My son and I enjoyed Dinosaur....and I *love* Indy! I can't wait for my son to ride it this summer!!
