We've been seeing a whole dino-load of behind the scenes leaked images from the set of Jurassic World, but I think some stealthy set-photo-happy-ninja might have uncovered the best ones yet.

A user over at has apparently received legitimate maps from the set of [Jurassic World](movie:32752). The maps, which looks like the kind of simplified cartographic graphics you frequently find in theme parks, are chock full of interesting, nostalgic and potentially spoilerific details. With this in mind, continue with caution.

Check out the maps below:

Now, although we can't obviously assume these maps give away important plot details, they certainly suggest some of the things we might be seeing.

One of the most stark aspects about these images is how nostalgic for the original Jurassic Park they are. Many of the dinosaurs we saw are featured again, while things such as The Egg Spinner (which is presumably a ride) also reference elements of the first film.

However, there are also some exciting new details - primarily the Jurassic World Lagoon. This central location seems to be of specific importance, especially considering it seems to house the Visitors Center and a 'Sea Parks'-esque display area. Now, I'm only guessing, but I'm expecting the Mosasaurus feeding show doesn't go exactly to plan. Another interesting spot is the Pachy Arena, which is presumably an amphitheater in which you can watch Pachycephalosaurus literally go head-to-head. It's not exactly ethical, which could in fact be a subtle subtext of how Jurassic World is ran.

There is, of course, one glaringly obvious omission from this dino-line-up. Where exactly are the raptors? Considering they've been one of the star antagonists - along with the T-Rex - of all the Jurassic Park films, I imagine they are included, but where?

All-in-all, I think this map bodes well for the film. In all likelihood this is nothing but rather insignificant set dressing. However, the depth of detail and the synergy between different creative departments, suggests some serious effort and love is being put into this film.

What do you think? Do you like how Jurassic World is shaping up? Let us know below.


Do you think the raptors won't be included?
