The Jaws ride is synonomous with Universal Studios, and has always captured the imagination of those riding on it. In truth however, the ride really is starting to look a little dated. Don't get me wrong, it is still thoroughly enjoyable and the storyline that they're working with is great, but it's not particularly scary seeing a twenty-odd year old, decaying model come out of the water. For it's time it must have been great though, and you will perhaps appreciate it more if considering the age when riding.
This is a boat ride where you are suddenly "attacked" by the shark when the trademark music begins to play. It is a rather tame ride for an adult but can be a thrill ride for the kids! Makes for a great photo though.
Ever wondered how it feels to be attack by a shark? Well, you shouldn't miss to try this ride ~ the JAWS.
Personally, queueing up the long line is worth it considering the fun and excitement that you would experience.
Although they somewhat need a new shark model to make it more realistic, the existing one is good enough to have some fun.
You will ride a 20 seater boat with your own tourguide. And as you travel along, a mighty shark will pop out to scare you.
Caution: People sitting on the extreme left side of the boat can really get wet. The explosion effects can also be extremely hot. So, beware!

Good fun, especially the very realistic tour guide...You almost believe you are in danger...
You can get wet at this one... Long lines...
Take a shot with the shark at the entrance. My brother refused to...
