IF I WENT TO JURASSIC WORLD

“The most advanced amusement park in the entire world! Combining all the latest technologies. And I’m not just talking about rides, everybody has rides. No, we’ve made living biological attractions so astounding that they’ll capture the imaginations of the entire planet!”

John Hammond, Jurassic Park

When we saw Jurassic World, we got to see what a functional dinosaur theme park would have been like if Jurassic Park did not fail. After seeing what the park has to offer, I often imagine what I would do if I went to Jurassic World while it was open. I would prefer to visit Jurassic World about six months before the Indominus Rex breaks out. That way I could safely experience everything the park has to offer without fear of getting trampled or eaten.

I would start by getting a room at the local Hilton. When I had my book signing at WonderCon in 2015, I stayed at a Hilton and it was a very nice hotel to stay in. I would definitely stay at the Hilton in Jurassic World especially since it comes with a spa. I would take part in the spa in order to relieve my muscles and joints of all their stress. The Hilton will also be the place where I get my breakfast. I know from personal experience that they serve great breakfasts.

We shall begin with the attractions in Sector 1, which consists of the Botanical Gardens and the Golf Course. The Botanical Gardens would allow me to examine cloned prehistoric plants that are about 200 million years old. I own golf clubs so I think the Golf Course would be an ideal place to hit a bucket of balls.

In Sector 2, I would get to see the Bamboo Forest, the Gondola Lift, and Lookout Point. The Bamboo Forest would allow me to take a peaceful walk through a recreated prehistoric forest that houses seven species of dinosaurs. It would feel like taking a spiritual walk through the distant past. I would be fine about going on the Gondola Lift because I have ridden one before while vacationing in the mountains. However, there is not a chance in heck I would do Lookout Point because I have motion sickness, which would make me ill-suited to riding a hang glider.

In Sector 3, there is Main Street, Gentle Giants Petting Zoo, Jurassic World Lagoon, T. Rex Kingdom, and the Innovation Center. Main Street will be filled with restaurants where I would get lunch and dinner and an IMAX theater that would me to see a prehistoric world on the big screen with the best surround sound money can buy. The Gentle Giants Petting Zoo houses baby dinosaurs and is usually reserved for children. However, I would go into that petting zoo, sit in the middle of the area, and wait for the baby dinosaurs to swarm me. When they do swarm me, I would smother the baby dinosaurs with all the love I have to offer. I do the same thing at the dog park. The Jurassic World Lagoon is home to the Mosasaurus and I would get to watch its feeding show. The T. Rex Kingdom would allow me to come face-to-face with my favorite dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus Rex. And this would be no ordinary T. Rex; this would be the original one from Jurassic Park, which would make meeting her even more special. The Innovation Center would be like a museum full of information on prehistory and it would have the Creation Lab where the dinosaurs are made. It would be like going behind the scenes of Disney’s Imagineers.

In Sector 4, there is the Gallimimus Valley, the Gyrosphere Valley, and Triceratops Territory. The Gallimimus Valley would allow me to ride on a safari truck alongside a herd of Gallimimus, which would be like driving alongside a frolicking herd of gazelles or ostriches. The Gyrosphere Valley would enable me to move amongst many species of large dinosaurs while inside a bulletproof sphere. That way, I can walk amongst giants with little fear of injury. The Triceratops Territory would be the Triceratops equivalent of T. Rex Kingdom.

In Sector 5, there is the Aviary, Cretaceous Cruise, the Raptor Paddock, and the River Adventure. The Aviary is home to at least two species of pterosaurs: Pteranodon and Dimorphodon. That would be amazing to see flying reptiles as big as pterosaurs. I would go through the Aviary while riding Cretaceous Cruise, which is a kayak river ride that would allow me to see over a hundred species of dinosaurs and prehistoric plants while in my kayak. Cretaceous Cruise may also be part of the River Adventure, which features Parasaurolophus that glow in the dark. Then I would go to the Raptor Paddock, where I would watch Owen Grady train and feed his pack of Velociraptors.

Sector 6 would be less accessible than the other sectors since it consisted of Camp Cretaceous, the Carnotaurus Paddock, the Indominus Rex Paddock, and the rest of the sector would consist of docks and genetics labs. Camp Cretaceous is meant for kids and would not have started by the time of my visit. The Carnotaurus and Indominus Rex paddocks would be off limits for guests because the Carnotaurus is too aggressive and the Indominus Rex paddock is still under construction. The labs and the docks would be available only to park staff.

Overall, Jurassic World would be full of surprises, sights, and experiences that I would want to witness before the park was destroyed. It would be a place I would like to visit more than even Disneyland.
