"Don't forget why we built this place, Claire. Jurassic World exists to remind us how very small we are. How new. You can't put a price on that."
Simon Masrani(src)


Jurassic World was the fully functioning theme park on Isla Nublar, which opened to the public in 2005. The main attractions of the park were living dinosaurs, cloned by InGen's Dr. Henry Wu

Inspired by, and built over, the original park, Jurassic World contained elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. The park also functioned as a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course.[2] By 2015, the park hosted over 20,000 visitors each day, while its hours of operation were from 8AM until 10PM.[3]

After a decade of successful operations, the park was closed after the disastrous escape of the Indominus rex, which was created in an effort to boast the number of guests to the island. In the aftermath, the remains of the park were consumed by nature and were eventually destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Mount Sibo in 2018.[4]

History

Foundation

After Masrani Global Corporation acquired the rights to InGen, CEO Simon Masrani began to craft a plan to successfully create a dinosaur park, a task that InGen had failed twice. With a collection of experts from the Masrani Global Corporation, as well as Dr. Henry Wu from the recently acquired company InGen supporting his vision, Simon's plan was set in motion[5]. For Masrani, creating a dinosaur park was incredibly important, for it had been "John Hammond's dying wish"[6]. Masrani aimed to construct the park on the former Site A of the first failed Jurassic Park plan, Isla Nublar, necessitating a need to reclaim the island from the genetically recreated dinosaurs that had adopted the island in Man's absence.

Named "Jurassic World", Simon Masrani used subsidiary Axis Boulder Engineering and founded Timack Construction to prepare, plan, and begin construction of the new dinosaur park.[5][7] Their construction workers were protected by InGen's Security Divison which was now supervised by Vic Hoskins from the island's local wildlife as they built the new park.[5][8] Although what remained of the first park had been discovered by teams sent to the island, it was not incorporated into the new park, instead being closed off to the public and left to continue to rot.

By the summer of 2004, four Brachiosaurses (Olive, Anges, Dot, and Pearl), over a dozen Parasaurolophuses, the flock of Gallimimuses, and a herd of fifthteen Triceratops (such as Curie, Johnson, and Hypatia) were incorporated into the early park, along with six juvenile Ankylosaurs, likely bred in the labs or otherwise taken from Site B, with more to be planned. As for carnivores, the Tyrannosaurus and Dilophosaurus were captured but restricted due to the danger these animals presented. Groups of Compsognathus still roamed parts of the island. Plant life such as Araucaria araaucana have also brought into parts of the island. The animals that are born identify with music, such as jazz. Other behaviors noted during this time include Brachiosaurs viewing the early Gyrospheres as toys, Gallimimuses racing the security jeeps, Rexy prefers to stay away from the view of humans unless its feeding time, deciding that humans needed to earn her respect, and the Parasaurs are interestingly reserve and tend to stay away from humans when possible. Early on, some of the dinosaurs from the old park were getting diseases, like a throat disease in the Triceratops and older Brachiosaurs.[1]


That same summer, a group of twelve interns from the Bright Minds program were brought to the island, including a young Claire Dearing, seemingly to be early testers for the park. At this point, the gates had been built, as well as at least one hotel, the command center, and the innovaion center, but the Monorail and most of main street were still in construction and the aviary to house Pteranodons was still still being built, having setbacks due to the need to develop a new polymer to withstand their beaks. The Gyrospheres are also in testing, having been leaked by a patent clerk to the public earlier that year. Masrani greets the new interns and advises them to watch out for the Compys on the island and the dangers from the construction around the place. The interns observe the sixteenth Triceratops, Lovelace, get introduced to the heard. The group then returns to the novation center and see the lab. There, Claire catches the eye of Masrani, as well as Henry Wu, who also aproves of another intern, Tanya Skye.[1]

The next day, Claire and the group return to the gyrosphere valley to find Lovelace trapped and hurt. They help the poor Triceratops and are able to heal and rescue the injured trike. Over the next few weeks, they spend more time with the dinosaur trainers and vets. During this time, Claire finds a notebook of a previous intern, Iz, which confuses her because they're supposed to be the first group there. She hears a story from Wyatt, an intern with a father close to Masrani, claims that an intern had died during a storm and this was covered up. She also notices suspicious behavior from the various staff and even around the island itself. During a test of the gyrosphere, the ride gets stuck on a falling tree with Claire and Justin inside. Then Pearl, a Brachiosaurus, comes charging at them in an attempt to play with the gyrosphere. She tosses around the gyrosphere, forcing the two to jump out. Tanya and Claire then assist Dr. Wu with the batch of newly created eggs for a new Pteranodon design. [1]

After asking two employees about Iz, Claire is taken from Dr. Wu by Miranda for an interview with Beverly Jamison, the leader of the intern group. While seemingly a check-up, it turns into a subtle threat to not ask about the past of the park. Soon, Masrani announces a Velociraptor will be transported from Sorna within the next week. Carnivores are more difficult to introduce to the island due to both the closeness of the herbivores and the territories set up on the islands, in addition to the usual stress dinosaurs have being transported. The interns find a solution to the gyrosphere with the Brachiosaur Pearl, by painting the gyrospheres to use as toys so she can differentiate them from the guest spheres.[1]

After some investigation, Claire finds out that Iz is a girl named Isobel James, a girl that reportingly died in Boston on March 4th of that year despite her journal saying otherwise that she was here on the island. Claire also found an algae that was acidic, likely causing the neck injuries on some of the dinosaurs thanks to Iz's journal that noted the algae as a likely culprit. She also finds a note not from Iz telling Iz to watch her ba. After informing Justin, a fellow intern, they decide to break into Wyatt's room to find more information. There they find a tranquilizer dart, a fusion bandage, some security specs, and several memory cards. They figure Wyatt is trying to steal either a small dinosaur or some eggs and race to alert Masrani. They arrive at the quarantine pens and find the building off and smokey. They find Tanya and Eric there and see that the Velociraptor had been released right by them. They escape into the paddock but have to quickly find a solution. Tanya and Eric are able to escape by jumping out but Claire and Justin are stuck inside. They race to the weapons cache, Claire grabs some tranquilizers and Justin rushes away to distract the raptor. She sprays the raptor with bear spray her sister made her bring and it knocks out the raptor. Justin dies as a result of the attack.[1]

Oscar soon finds Claire and gets her to safety. Tanya admits to Claire that her and her brother Eric were trying to spy on InGen for a pharmaceutical company known as Mosby Health, who offered to heal their sick sister in return for samples of the technology. The raptor is euthanized a Claire asked Masrani to continue helping the twins' sick sister so no one else has to die. Masrani admits that Isobel was part of the group assisting in transporting dinosaurs from Sorna to Nublar. He says she refused to leave the Brachiosaurs during a tropical storm on the island, particularly when a fire broke out around Olive. She went to free her but on her way back she crashed her jeep and died. He was forced to cover it up due to insurance reasons. She is unsure to believe this due to the threat note to Iz. He then offers Claire a job at the park as the one leading the park, after hearing how intelligent was on the island and to help him preventing further loss of life. She takes the job, desperate for the control she needs after the situation.[1] The construction of the new park was completed later that year, with a total of $1.2 billion spent on concrete and building materials.[5]

InGen was responsible for recreating Jurassic World's prehistoric fauna like they had done before for its precursor. Additionally, a number of dinosaurs initially created for the first park were recaptured and made into exhibits once more, as well as additional animals from Site B.

Opening

Ticket sales would start being sold six months before opening, but there was a lottery system put into place to prevent scalpers.[1] Jurassic World officially opened to the public in 2005 where it was met with 98,120 visitors in its first month. On the same year, the Masrani corporation signed a treaty with the Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society to protect Isla Nublar's native wildlife and their habitat.[5] The park opened with Eight species;[9] Ankylosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Compsognathus, Dilophosaurus, Gallimimus, Parasaurolophus, Triceratops, and one Tyrannosaurus rex.[1]

Over the years the park experiences years of growth and prosperity, along with many new dinosaur editions over the years. Soon the Pteranodon eggs would hatch and the aviary would be built by at least 2012. By 2004, the first strands of Mosasaurus DNA was uncovered and later in 2007, the first Mosasaurus was created for the park. Also in 2007, a new Brachiosaurus was added to the park and Stegosaurus was also added this year. In 2009, a new Carnotaurus was added to the park. By 2010, InGen unveiled the Apatosaurus to the park, as well as add in a new Baryonyx that same year. By 2011, the first Stygimoloch was created, proving that the animal was separate from its cousins, Dracorex and Pachycephaleosaurus. By 2012, the first group of Velociraptors were starting to be bred for a top secret project posing as an test exhibit. In 2014, Sinoceratops was introduced to the park. [10]By 2015, the number of species had grown hugely on the island, featuring animals such as Allosaurus, Compsognathus, Dimorphodon, Edmontosaurus, Metriacanthosaurus, Microceratus, Pachycephalosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Suchomimus, and possibly others.[11][12] However, despite the growing amount of dinosaurs in the park, investors got nervous as profits slowly declined. The investors urged the company to find a new solution to the park's problem.[13]

Indominus rex

In response to the decline in profits, Masrani decided to create the genetic hybrid known as Indominus rex. When CEO Simon Masrani announced the new attraction for the dinosaur park at the beginning of 2015 the park saw an increase in ticket sales[14], but the creation of a genetically modified hybrid would soon prove to be a horrible mistake. Unknown to Masrani, Hoskins had conspired with Wu and planned the creation of the Indominus rex for military applications, rather than be an attraction, creating a killing machine of unmatched lethality and cunning.

A few weeks before the opening of her new attraction, the Indominus rex escaped its paddock and went on a rampage, killing several ACU soldiers and the park's dinosaurs. Masrani then flew a helicopter armed with a minigun to take out the Indominus, however, it broke into the Isla Nublar Aviary and released the pterosaurs which attacked the visitors in the park. It continued its attack until the combined forces of the Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady, his raptors Blue, Delta, and Echo, the Park's Tyrannosaurus rex, and the Mosasaurus managed to defeat it.

As a result of the hybrid's attack and resulting damage, the park was closed down after the Isla Nublar Incident of 2015, as many people were injured or killed, including Hoskins and Simon Masrani, leaving Jurassic World to suffer the same fate as its predaccessor; a ruined rotting park slowly reclaimed by nature. In 2018, the park’s remains were destroyed when Mount Sibo became active, and destroyed Isla Nublar.

Reception

Jurassic World received high critical acclaim from visitors. InGen Security's protection of the park made it very safe, earning Jurassic World the title of the "Safest Theme Park in The World".[15][5] However, Jurassic World has had its fair share of criticism. Most notably was the lack of feathered dinosaurs in Jurassic World because of the amphibian DNA used in their creation.[16]

Methods

Jurassic World had many ways of handling and growing dinosaurs.

Raising newborns

In order to having lasting bonds with animals, trainers would sleep near the animals and be with them from birth the moment they're born in order to get familiar with humans and their scent. For carnivores, the workers had to be placed in between cages while raising the animals in order to prevent any attacks.[1]

Feeding

The Tyrannosaurus would be fed goats regularly, but every so often a special meal full of amino acids and and various nutrients is given to her in order to keep her healthy and active.[1]

Trivia

  • The website and film mentions Archaeornithomimus, though it is unknown if that dinosaur is actually present in the park.
  • Even if the park didn’t close in 2015, it would’ve still have been forced to shut down on account of Mount Sibo becoming active again.
