Details

Builder:Setpoint, SpectraF/X Inc.
Trains:Single car trains. Riders are arranged inline in 2 rows for a total of 2 riders per car.
History:During the Pteranodon Flyers' planning stages there was a lot of contact between SpectraF/X and CariproCaripro made quotations and forwarded designs to SpectraF/X, but SpectraF/X never revealed the customer. Communication between the two stopped and Caripro assumed the project was dead.

What happened next isn't completely known.  It seems SpectraF/X started construction using the designs of Caripro, but never completed the ride.  It is thought SpectraF/X went bankrupt before the ride was complete.  Much like Caripro was unaware the ride was intended for  Universal Studios, Universal Studios was probably unaware SpectraF/X had worked with Caripro and  Universal Studios hired Setpoint to complete the ride.

This is why this ride may look like a Caripro built ride even though they are not credited with building it.
