Jurassic World: The Exhibition Review
In this experience, you are a VIP guest of the Jurassic World park, and you’ll get to meet dinosaurs and see behind-the-scenes of the park’s operations.
Your immersive journey begins with a ride on the ferry to Isla Nublar. Once off the boat, you’ll step through the gates of Jurassic World, coming face-to-face with your first dinosaur: the Brachiosaurus.
You can take pictures with the giant dinosaur, look through binoculars to learn more about other dinosaurs in the park, and read a little about the dinosaur-age.
Next, you’ll meet a Stygimoloch before heading into the Genetic Creation Lab where Jurassic World’s geneticists bring dinosaurs back to life. There are mosquitoes trapped in amber, baby dinosaur eggs, and even dino poop that you can touch.
From here, it’s on to the Raptor Experience! Blue, the park’s famous Velociraptor, will show off her training. Don’t get too close to the raptor paddock!
In the next room, the kids get a chance to become a paleontologist with their very own sandbox fossil dig. Here, you’ll also get to meet Bumpy, the baby Ankylosaurus from Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. You can pet Bumpy and take a selfie with her.
Moving on, you’ll see the Indominus Rex. It’s feeding time for this hybrid that has the DNA combination of Carnotaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Raptors. this is another dangerous situation where you don’t want to get too close!
The next room features Gyrosphere Valley where you can sit in a life-sized gyrosphere display and meet a baby Velociraptor.
You’ve come to the end of your Jurassic World experience — but, oh no, a dinosaur has escaped containment! As park employees escort you out to safety, you’ll have a close encounter with the Tyrannosaurus Rex, one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs!
Luckily, you’re able to make it out alive and exit through the gift shop.
What Was Great About the Experience
- This is a fun experience for fans of the Jurassic World franchise.
- The kids will definitely love it! They get to see the big dinosaurs, they’ll be wowed by them moving around like the real things, they even get to touch the baby dinosaurs, they get to dig for fossils, and the encounters with the big dinosaurs aren’t too scary. The kiddos will definitely think it’s all real.
- They put a lot of detail into the creation, and the sets were really well done.
What Was Not So Great
- While it was a great experience for kids, for adults it was just kind of mid. If you’re a fan of the movies you’ll like it, otherwise it wasn’t too exciting.
- The gift shop is expensive, so be ready for that when your kids want to buy all the things!
