So @Mushroom the reason why I gave the alternative what I wish storyline is Blue and her fellow raptors Delta, Echo, and Charlie; is they are hero’s in their film that tend to always come back and help the humans.

And yes I know not everyone cares about this stuff but having that characters betray their key personality traits in the movie does bother me some. Even if they kept the story similar but when they broke containment you are guiding them back to the pad would be better to me than running away from them.
The raptors become heroes at the end of the film when they help take down the Indominus, but early in the film, they're still portrayed as dangerous killers. In fact, there are several scenes where the raptors kill (or almost kill) multiple human characters. Since the ride is set before the events of first film take place, the ride's portrayal of the raptors - tame enough that corporate thinks they're safe, but still deadly enough for Owen to be concerned - is perfectly in line with the raptors' characters.

I don't know if that was ever explicitly stated - I just assumed that was the case since the park gets destroyed and closes forever by the end of the film.
I think its pretty obvious because Blues siblings Charlie, Echo and Delta are alive and part of the chase. And as we all know Blue is the sole survivor of her raptor pack at the end of Jurassic World.

Well I can say it’s a great coaster, we rode back row yesterday and second row today. The back is over 50% out of your seat time, in fact quite a few times I felt like I was going to fly out of the seat. The 2nd row was much smother and you could see more of the rock work and surroundings.

Were they letting you pick seats or was back row just luck of the draw?

Also, thoughts on the restraints? I've been hearing good things.

Yes they were letting us pick our seats. We did back row first then today the front row was super long so we asked to do second row since we needed to head out to catch my flight. There was a “event” today with big wigs riding so more people queued up today. Most trains were running half empty or just with front and back rows filled. Both days I only saw a couple trains completely filled and they were not skipping rows. The new double sided lockers are great as well and they do metal detectors.

Why were only the front and back rows filled? Why weren't they filling the other rows? Just not that many people there or what?

That’s where everyone wanted to ride. And not every train was like that, all depended on where people wanted to sit or if they didn’t have a request.
