Jurassic World Starting to Take Over Jurassic Park at Islands of Adventure

Alicia Stella 3 Comments

With the blockbuster film Jurassic World stomping all over box office records, Universal Orlando is wasting no time slapping the film’s logo all over the parks, especially in the Jurassic Park area at Islands of Adventure. So far you’ll find Jurassic World banners and logos plastered all over the Thunder Falls Terrace restaurant and Jurassic Outfitters gift shop. There’s signage for all the different attractions you can experience at Jurassic World, such as the Gyrosphere ride seen in the film. Unfortunately though, there isn’t (yet) an actual Gyrosphere ride here in Orlando. Maybe one day. There’s also a few new pieces of merchandise for Jurassic World at the parks, including some exclusive items. Jurassic World theming has not yet made its way to the Discovery Center or River Adventure, perhaps to keep those attractions in line with the original film, but who knows how far they’ll take the theming in the future. See the entire photo report below and stay tuned for more Jurassic sized updates!

Maybe it's because of the summer crowds, but it's nice to see Thunder Falls open for lunch again

Perhaps because this restaurant is not mentioned in the first Jurassic Park film they felt it would be easy to slap Jurassic World all over it.

This guy's been in here for well over a decade. Used to be by the door but people kept breaking his sails off, so he lives on the counter now

I do love the food at Thunder Falls. It's nice be able to get something different than just a burger and fries at a theme park. Glad to see it so busy and refreshed.

The banners really sell the Jurassic World concept. I wonder if we'll see some on the pathways one day?

    That dippin dots stand is out pretty often. Nothing new. It’s been there for at least 3 years. Maybe not out every day during slow seasons though.

    It’s a shame.
    Even if the park was awesome in Jurassic World, the whole experience wasn’t good enough to wish to see that in a park like this.

    Maybe am I too old to understand all this buzz around this poor movie, and new generations will be fan of this one as I was with the first one.

    But a shame to replace references and signages of Jurassic Park with those of Avengers Park !
