- "Roll around with our dinosaurs in our glass-encased Gyrosphere. "

The Gyrosphere reaches speeds of 5 mph and has a built-in computer monitor to identify the prehistoric wildlife that can be observed. To prevent harassing the animals, the vehicle will automatically roll backwards toward a safe distance if it is too close to an animal. Advanced invisible fence technology keeps the animals that are observed from roaming astray without the use of cages and bars that are unnecessary. According to Jimmy Fallon in the Gyrosphere instruction video, the glass is able to stop a 50 caliber bullet and can protect the guest from the venom spit of a Dilophosaurus.
Gyrosphere 07 was used by Zach and Gray on their visit to Jurassic World. Zack and Gray saw an opening in the perimeter fence and went in where they saw several Ankylosaurus. While in there, the park's newest attraction, Indominus rex attacked. The Ankylosaurs ran to avoid the fight, hitting the Gyrosphere on their way, but the Indominus rex was able to get one, although it put up a fight and even smacked the I. rex in the head, but the I. rex slashes its legs and flips the Ankylosaurus over and kills it. The Indominus resumed attacking the two brothers by piercing her mid talon into the glass and rotating it so the boys could see their demise. She then attempted to chomp the Gyrosphere whole but gets her mouth stuck, but attempts to smash it several times into the ground to crack it open, but the two brothers escaped by getting out of their damaged Gyrosphere and jumping off a waterfall.
Shortly afterward, the Indominus attacked a herd of Apatosaurus, killing five and fatally injuring one before moving on into the restricted area of Isla Nublar, leaving their bodies uneaten.
Owen Grady and Claire Dearing found these Apatosaurus and comforted the injured dinosaur, settling her down when she attempted to rise up, upon which she died peacefully. The death of such a harmless and docile creature caused Claire much sorrow, which was mixed with horror when they discovered the five dead ones. The discovery of these Apatosaurs made Owen realize that the Indominus was hunting for sport.
When the volcano erupted three years later, Owen, Clare, and Franklin Webb, while looking for Owen's only surviving raptor, took shelter behind a weathered Gyrosphere to avoid getting trampled by a stampede consisting of Allosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Carnotaurus, Compsognathus, Gallimimus, Pteranodon, Sinoceratops, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and Roberta.
The Gyrosphere ride appears in the video game LEGO Jurassic World.
The Gyrosphere will appear in the game LEGO Dimensions. It can only be unlocked by purchasing the Jurassic World team pack and inserting the piece into the "portal" that comes with the game.
