It’s a balmy 26C in Jurassic World according to the flash new website, ingeniusly designed to look very much like the tourist attraction it’s meant to be. The park capacity’s at 96% and I’ve just learned that the T-Rex feeding will be at 4pm, the next Cretaceous Cruise starts in just over 11 minutes and oh! The next batch of fresh baked churros will be ready in half an hour. Can you smell it people? Jurassic World is getting closer and they want us to get excited. And well, it’s working. (For me, at least.)
This isn’t the Jurassic World official movie website mind you, but it is the official website for the park itself. I love marketing ploys like this, it gets you completely absorbed into the world of the movie. The first Jurassic Park movie came out when I was born, so it’s a franchise very much close to my heart growing up, so getting to see this sort of thing and the effort into crafting pages about planning your stay at the park and safety measures really does get my inner n3rd singing praises.
One of my favourite things about the website is the safety page I just mentioned, because there’s this fantastic quote that you just can’t miss…
“We have spared no expense to make Isla Nublar safe for human and dinosaur alike.”
– John Hammond
Really John. Really. I don’t know why, but something in the back of my mind makes me not believe a word you or your colleague have to say.
Anyway, one of the most interesting features of the website is that we’re getting a steady reveal of the dinosaurs that live in Jurassic World now. Here’s the low down on the eight scaly creatures that have been revealed so far.
We still have ten dinosaurs left to be revealed on the site, including the infamous Velociraptor. Stay tuned for more!
