Jurassic Park may be extinct at Universal Studios Hollywood, but its DNA lives on in Jurassic World. While Steven Spielberg’s film may not be the namesake of the new experiences, he was very much involved and supportive of the evolution of the park.
Watch the fantastic behind the scenes video below where numerous Jurassic World creatives weigh in on bringing the dinosaurs to life!
Recently, I visited the park for the grand opening celebration of the ride – I’ve struggled getting my “review” and videos online, in part due to my busy schedule, but also due to the fact that I’m not sure what I think of it all. When it’s good, it’s great, but overall the new Jurassic World experience feels lackluster and rushed, not living up to its source material, nor justifying it replacing a classic which has so much attention to detail put in.
But that’s not to say the new Jurassic World experience isn’t fun – it’s a blast, especially with the dinosaur meet and greets, which are pure magic. If you go with friends or family, you’re going to have a good time – but you will also likely expect a little more from it all around (especially when compared to stellar and robust experiences like the Wizarding World of Harry Potter).
I’m off message here – I need to save this all for my roundup of my time at the park. Until then, watch the video above, check out some of the great pictures, and form your own opinion – and certainly don’t hold back from visiting the park due to my uneven thoughts!
