With Jurassic World's latest epic attraction, the Indominus Rex, set to debut in a few weeks, we at Jurassic World believe that now is the right time to start preparing yourself for your visit to the park! During your stay at the park, our guests can enjoy various attractions such as a refreshing dip at the aquatic park, a panoramic view from the gondola lift, a sneak peek at the hatchery lab, and an extraordinary view of giant soaring lizards in the aviary enclosure.
After enjoying some of the park's amazing attractions, stop by Margaritaville for a refreshing drink or Ben & Jerry's for a cool scoop of ice cream before you head on over to the dinosaur enclosures! However, before taking a look the Earth's most majestic creatures, the park would like to remind guests of a few vital safety precautions meant to make everyone's time at the park as enjoyable as possible!
Important Safety Precautions
- Please keep head, hands, arms, legs, and feet outside of the paddock at all times
- Do not tap on the glass
- Do not throw anything into the enclosures
- Do not pass the barriers into the dinosaur paddocks
- Do not agitate dinosaurs
- Please maintain a safe distance between you and the electrified safety fences
Jurassic World currently boasts 150 different safety protocols meant to ensure the safety and security of both our guests as well as our dinosaurs. Now that we have discussed safety precautions, we would like to introduce you to some of the many dinosaurs you will come into contact with during your visit here at Jurassic World.
Also known as "two-form tooth," Dimorphodon is one of the many flying dinos you can visit in the park's aviary. As one of the smaller carnivorous dinosaurs, this flying beast weighs a mere 3 pounds, allowing it to efficiently soar through the skies. Don't be fooled by its light weight body, however. Dimorphodon measures a whopping 8 feet in length and uses its powerful jaws and sharp talons to scoop up fish and insects for dinner.
During your visit, make sure to stop by the aquatic feeding show to catch a glimpse of one of the park's most popular residents, the Mosasaurus. Weighing in at a mind-boggling 6 tons and measuring 60 feet, this creature is definitely not something you want to bump into during your trip to the beach. The Mosasaurus took up residence in the seas of Europe and North America about 70 to 66 million years ago and is actually considered a massive aquatic lizard rather than a true dinosaur. Nevertheless, Mosasaurus remains one of the park's most fearsome beasts.
Say hello to one of the many gentle giants we have here at the park, the Edmontosaurus. Despite its massive size, this 4 ton animal mostly enjoys dining on vegetation with its fellow herd members. The docile creature unfortunately lacks proper defenses for protection against predators but utilizes its keen sense of sight and smell to evade its primary enemy, the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex.
As one can guess from its name, Microceratus are some of Jurassic World's tiniest residents. These little ones only measure 2.5 feet, weigh up to 14 pounds, and use their beak-like mouths to munch on leaves and other greenery. However, they often lack in intelligence and are known to mistake guests' litter for food. That being said, please be wary of where you discard your waste during your visit.
Metriacanthosaurus, a British native during the mid-Jurassic period, can be seen during your relaxing trip on the Cretaceous Cruise. The animal earns its name, meaning "Moderately-Spined Lizard," because of its protruding vertebrae, which create spines along the entirety of the dino's back. Remember to be careful while paddling during your cruise, though. These animals do possess a considerably high aggression index and are known to feed on fellow dinosaurs.
Undoubtedly the park's most popular resident, the "Tyrant Lizard," better known as the Tyrannosaurus Rex, once inhabited North America about 68 to 66 million years ago. As an obviously powerful carnivore, the T. Rex possesses a terrifying bite force of 12,800 pounds. Despite its tiny arms, the banana-sized bone crushing teeth are more than enough to satisfy this dino's eating habits.
Originating straight from the Hammond Creation Lab, let us welcome the Indominus Rex! This menacing attraction, a mixture of dreams and scientific ingenuity, is set to make its grand debut June 12th! At first glance, the Indominus Rex may seemingly possess a similar silhouette to the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex. However, note the bony body armor lining the dino's body from head to tail as well as the jagged rows of teeth that could undoubtedly easily crush through bone. In fact, these spear-like teeth continuously regrow, just like those of a great white shark. With a very high aggression index and the ability to run at speeds of 30 mph (while confined), the carnivorous "Untamable Beast" is not a creature you want to cross paths with when it is outside of its enclosure. If you ever find yourself face to face with Indominus Rex, do not attempt to confront or retaliate.
Due to it's speed, cunning intelligence, and high aggression index, the velociraptor is not currently available for public display and interaction. We apologize for the inconvenience and want visitors to know that we at Jurassic World consider our visitors' safety our number one priority.
The above dinosaurs are only but a few of the 18 different creatures you can discover during you stay at Jurassic World. We here at the park believe that sharing history's most magnificent creatures with the public is of utmost importance, and we hope to see you soon here at Jurassic World!
