You now have a chance to get up-close and personal with Blue and the other raptors. These carnivores tower 12 feet in height and 15 feet from tail to snout. No need to worry though! The raptors are still contained inside their paddock.

Make sure to have your camera ready to snap a quick pic and try not to make too many sudden movements. There will be a trainer nearby to make sure nothing goes wrong and to relay some interesting facts about the clever girl. Like the fact that each raptor has 56 razor sharp teeth and lunges with curved claws that extend up to 12 inches from their 18 inch-long feet.

Blue’s debut at Islands of Adventure comes as part our celebration of all things Jurassic Park as we commemorate the 25th anniversary of the movie that started it all AND the premiere of the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on June 22, 2018.

Make your way over to Islands of Adventure and test your training skills with Blue and the other raptors. Remember, it’s a relationship built on mutual respect.
