The stealthy Jurassic World set-snappers have been at it again! Over the past few weeks, clandestine set photographers have been taking unofficial pictures of the Jurassic World sets. This time they've come back with a helipad and a few other interesting tidbits.

Reel Tour Hawaii recently put up a whole load of photos showing an airborne camera unit, a helipad and more. First, let's take a look at this helicopter:

According to, these shots show Colin Trevorrow and his crew filming the opening scenes to [Jurassic World](movie:32752) - scenes, which if their sources are accurate, are clearly reminiscent of the famous Jurassic Park's scene. In reality it's actually difficult to see if scenes are really being filmed in these set photos. This building could merely be a helipad for the helicopter camera unit. However, look at the man on the far right dressed in black. He seems to be carrying a rifle. So either security on set is ridiculously high, or this is indeed a scene being filmed.

Scified also claimed to have uncovered the location of the Jurassic World Visitor's Center. According to their sources, the Hawaii Convention Center is being used as a major film set. The magnificent building is certainly reminiscent of concept art previously shown for Jurassic World, while photos from within the Convention Center seem to suggest it is indeed being filmed in. Take a look below:

ComicBookMovie has also contributed one more image to the haul. They found a picture of one of those huge jeeps we've previously seen, plus an apparent Jurassic World guard.

Now, what does ACU stand for? Well, ACU does stand for Army Combat Uniform, but I have a feeling this must be related to the dinosaurs at Jurassic World. CBM suggests 'Animal Control Unit', which I think is as good a guess as any at the moment.

What do you think? Are you impressed with Jurassic World's choice of locations?


What do you think of the potential 'Visitor's Center'?
