Riding on the continued hype of “Jurassic World,” this week Universal Studios Hollywood debuted a walk-around Raptor Encounter experience in the Jurassic Park area of the theme park’s lower lot.
After much commotion, a raptor emerges from its paddock, seemingly well trained to pose safely with park guests – though trainers are always on hand in case anything goes awry, frequently striking the now-famous ‘PrattKeeping‘ pose:

The raptor walks around on its own and makes plenty of noise as it roars and barks while showing off its impressive jaws.
Universal Orlando premiered a similar experience, keeping its raptor tucked away while guests pose for photos.
