Which water ride do you all think is better, Perilous Plunge or Jurrassic Park the Ride? My vote goes to Plunge because of the drop.

Well let's compare the most exciting part of both rides, the final splashdown drop:
<BR><!-- BBCode Start --><B>Perilous Plunge</B><!-- BBCode End -->
<BR> 115 FT
<BR> 77.8
<BR><!-- BBCode Start --><B>Jurassic Park : The Ride</B><!-- BBCode End -->
<BR> 82 FT
<BR> 52
<BR>Well, I like theming, and that adds A LOT to a ride, but that 77.8 drop from 115 FT up is utterly terrifying. Same goes for that massive 45 FT splash. Just looking at the expressionless faces of the general public watching a boat plummet down that chute would probably make anybody's day. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Jurrassic Park has sweet themeing but the drop doesn't do if for me like PP. Anybody like Escape From Pompeii at BGW

Perilous Plunge has a big, wet drop, but Jurassic Park has great themeing. I think I'll go with PP.

Well, I know I'm more into the water than the theming, so I'd definitely go with Perilous Plunge.

I'd say the plunge.

Perilous Plunge, that drop is just amazing.

I haven't been on Perilous Plunge, but if I did, I think it would easily beat Jurassic Park. The theming of the ride is great, but I would much prefer a drop like the Plunge's.

I have been on Jurrasic Park and Escape from Pompeii. It is obvious Perilous Plunge is a better drop. As for which is a better ride...It's hard for me to say anything since I haven't been on Perilous Plunge but I know it is like Splashwater Falls at SFGAm except taller and steeper. I love good theming so I would have to give the nod to Jurrasic Park slightly. But once again, hard for me to say since I haven't been on PP.

Escape from pompei rules the heat then aaahhhhhh the refreshing soaking. juraisc park is cool but never been on pp but also tidal wave at thorpe park has 85ft drop amazing theming and quite stepp and best of all you don't come of at all!!!! dry

i hate water rides

PP is the preimere water ride and I don't care what any of you say but PP has the best drop anywhere.

I still think Perilous Plunge is better (even though there's no theming). It's drop is awesome! That thing is steep!!! I love it!

I have ridden both PP and JP. I usually like theming, but I felt that the Jurassic Park ride was boring, except for the drop (that could be due to most of the dinosaurs having to take a trip to the "doctor"). My vote goes to Perilous Plunge. Not only is it thrilling, but it gives INCREDIBLE airtime.

Perilous Plunge beats JP any day. I really didn;t like how JP purposely got you wet on the drop and before the lift with that nasty spitter.
<BR>Has anyone noticed how bruised and abused the Plunges' drop lookes like on these coaster specials. The drop seems to be getting rougher and rougher.
<BR>Is there a better ride than the plunge, sure, put the concept of the plunge and mix it with the concept of X and you get the worlds first "Coaster simuating a Olympic Dive!"
<BR>Email me for photos of the MODEL Perilous PLUNGE CURRENTLY IN MY ROOM!

I still think the Perilous Plunge is WAAAY better than Jurassic Park.

pp has a great drop. In the front all you see is water.

07-08-2001, 12:02 AM
I think PP is much more thrilling than JP because you can see what you are in for.

never been on PP, but JP has some really good themeing and the T-Rex before drop is pretty kool. so i go with JP

07-09-2001, 06:06 PM
EvenThough PP has a taller and steeper drop i still think JP is the best water/flume ride out there....Clint

The drop doesn't make the ride!
<BR>JP has excellent theming and a decent drop.
<BR>what really gets me on this ride is the way it's done, the dinos, the line, the boats themselves.
<BR> The best water ride is PP.
<BR> The best water EXPERIENCE is JP.

You guys are pretty oblivious. Perilous plunge has a theme, its a harbor/dock theme in fictitous California Harbor. I say PP is better, but I still LOVE Jurassic park.
<BR>P.S. PP is 121 ft.

07-13-2001, 08:59 PM
I like both of them. PP is much taller and being in the open air seems to make the ride more exciting. Jurrasic Park has so much better theming, and it's longer then PP. Their both so good that I can't decide which is better.

I'd say JP has great theme, and leading up to the drop is great, and I'm sticking with that all the way...
