LiDAR Safety Equipment Rig Installed on All DINOSAUR Ride Vehicles

    Next time you ride DINOSAUR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the ride vehicle may look a little different thanks to new equipment installed on the rear of the ride vehicle. The equipment, which baffled guests during testing, is a LiDAR rig, according to Cast Members that spoke with. The LiDAR rig is a safety measure, meant to detect if guests attempt to stand up during the ride – apparently a big enough problem to prompt installing these rigs on every ride vehicle. Previously the test was limited to just a single vehicle but has been rolled out to all vehicles. Here’s a look!

    1. further amplifies the point , between the new addition, plus refurbishment of the dino outside the ride, that this part of Dinland is going to stay. Since Rivers of Light ended, Disney had no idea what to do with the ampitheater. Now that Kite Tails has ended, it’s likely going to be where the Moana area will be. Zootopia will likely take over the carnival area and where primeval whirl was. Dinosaur and maybe the Boneyard will stay I think.
