I've been watching vintage Universal Studios footage from Florida from the 90's. In one of the videos I had seen what appeared to be a Casper walk through attraction. I just now watched another vintage video from '97, which had a Jurassic Park walk through attraction. I looked up Casper and it seems the Orlando Sentinel didn't seem to like the idea from what I read from an article released in '95. As for the Jurassic Park attraction it is hard to do a quick Google, as technically in 1997 Hollywood opened one (the one we got a copy of at IoA) and the sequel came out the same year.

I am thinking that the Casper and Jurassic Park attraction probably occupied the same location. They both appeared to be walk through attractions and more than likely were for promotional reasons. So, I was curious as to who has an idea on where it was from experience? Also, if you did experience one, or both attractions, did you like it?

I don't remember a Casper Walkthrough in either Orlando park back in the 90s, but that definitely doesn't mean there couldn't have been something for a period of time. But back in the 90s there was a Triceratops walkthrough in the Jurassic Park area of Islands of Adventure:
which I do remember.
