Jurassic World Brochure

Jurassic World was a theme park built from the ashes of Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar after the death of John Hammond and the acquisition of InGen by Masrani Global. It was the first theme park in the world to showcase genetically engineered dinosaurs. Unlike its predecessor, the park opened to the public in 2005 and continued to operate without major incident for over a decade.

In 2015, seeking to re-invigorate interest in the park, Masrani Global sought to create the world's first genetic hybrid; a combination of multiple dinosaur genomes bringing together the most interesting traits of their most popular animals. This proved to be a fatal error however as the result of their efforts, the Indominus Rex, proved unpredictable and broke free of containment, causing many injuries and fatalities. The park was evacuated and abandoned until 2018 when an expedition from the Lockwood Foundation ventured to island to rescue the surviving animals from the now active Mt. Sibo.


Following the passing of John Hammond in 1998, Masrani Global began pursuing the acquisition of InGen and all their assets with the intention of reviving Jurassic Park. By 1998 a deal was struck and InGen became a subsidiary of Masrani Global. The following year saw limited access granted to both Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna. Henry Wu, the creator of the original animals for Jurassic Park, was brought on to the project in 1999 by Simon Masrani in a new leadership role with InGen. With planning for the project now in full motion, Masrani opted to update the name to Jurassic World to match its new scope, and move away from any bad press associated with previous incidents.

Masrani subsidiaries Axis Boulder Engineering and Timack Construction began work on the preparation and planning prior to construction on the island in 2002. InGen Security watched over construction, protecting workers from the remaining native wildlife until its completion in 2004. During this time, the island became a target for conservation groups around the globe who were looking and waiting for any incident to try and take Isla Nublar away from Masrani Global. With the Park completed, animals were moved into the park from Isla Sorna.

Bright Minds Internships

Welcome to Jurassic World

Jurassic World finally opened to the public in June 2005 with attendance of 98,120 visitors in the first month of operation. At the time of opening, there were a total of 8 species in the park. By 2015 that number had grown to 20; 14 Herbivores and 6 Carnivores. On April 5th 2009, the Indominus Rex was born in the Hammond Creation Lab along with a Sibling. InGen Security launched Project I.B.R.I.S. in 2012 looking to study the intelligence of Velociraptors for possible Military Application. A secure Research Arena was constructed in a restricted section of Sector 5 and Owen Grady and his partner Barry Sembenè were brought on board as Animal Trainers.

Fall of Jurassic World

On the day of the Jurassic World Incident, a total of 21,216 visitors were present in the park. Simon Masrani and Vic Hoskins also arrived on the island to inspect their respective projects and Verizon Wireless were present to discuss an endorsement deal with Claire Dearing, who in turn was awaiting the arrival of her nephews.

Zach and Gray Mitchell arrived that morning at Jurassic World via the Isla Nublar Ferry. They were greeted by Zara Young as their aunt was otherwise disposed with her Park Manager duties. Boarding the Monorail the group travelled to the Hilton Isla Nublar where Gray got his first glimpse of the Jurassic World Lagoon. Meanwhile on the other side of the Lagoon, Claire Dearing greeted Hal Osterly, Jim Drucker and Erica Brand of Verizon Wireless who were on the island negotiating potential sponsorship of an upcoming attraction. Dearing took them to the Hammond Creation Lab within the Innovation Center and with the assistance of Henry Wu, gave a short presentation on the Indominus Rex, convincing the Verizon representatives to agree to the deal.

Meanwhile, the Mitchell brothers arrived at the Innovation Center with Zara in tow. They were greeted by their Aunt who's desire to shirk her familial responsibilities in favour of her work ones was very apparent. Dearing then travelled to the Helipad, via the Control Room to meet Simon Masrani who was onsite to inspect the progress of the Indominus Rex. Accompanied by Masrani's Flight Instructor, the pair flew across the island in Jurassic One, passing by the waterfall that once adorned the Jurassic Park Helipad and arriving at the Indominus Rex Paddock. Overall Masrani was impressed by the Indominus Rex and it's scare factor, this was overshadowed by his concerns for the stability of the Paddock. He requested that Dearing conscript Owen Grady into inspecting the Paddock for vulnerabilities. Dearing reluctantly agreed.

Across the island, Zach and Gray explored the Gentle Giants Petting Zoo with a disinterested Zara escorting them. Bored by the childish attraction, Zach took advantage of the distracted Zara and ran off back to Main Street with Gray who in turn dragged Zach into T. Rex Kingdom. Watching Rexy devour a goat from inside the viewing area, Zach received a call from his mother who was displeased to hear that their aunt was not accompanying them on their trip. On her way to conscript Owen Grady, Dearing received a scolding call from Karen Mitchell, reluctantly admitting fault and sharing some sisterly humour. Arriving at Owen's Shack, Dearing shared a sour reunion with Grady, bantering over their dating history and differing opinions on the animals they work with.

Jurassic World was divided in large Sectors, separated by Perimeter Walls and Electrified Fencing. The Sectors were interconnected by a series of roads and underground service tunnels as well as the Jurassic World Monorail.

Maps and Diagrams

There are several different maps depicting the facilities and layout of Jurassic World. In some instances they are contradictory and do not match the physical facilities as seen in the park.

Paddocks and Animal Ranges

Like it's predecessor, Jurassic World featured Electrified Perimeter Fences as well as smaller Containment Pens. Unlike Jurassic Park however, it also included an Invisible Fence barrier system to minimise visual obstructions whilst maintaining control over the animal's movement.

Planned Future Attractions


At the time of opening, Jurassic World only had 8 species on display. By 2015 that number had grown to 20; 14 Herbivores and 6 Carnivores. For many years Jurassic World only showcased what they considered to be accurate dinosaurs, though due to the incomplete nature of many of the genomes and the genetic splicing required to progress them to a viable status the appearance of the park's animals may differ greatly from their original counterparts. It was decided later that the park was begun to suffer from 'dinosaur-fatigue', and that people were beginning to see dinosaurs the same way they saw other zoo animals. As such, Management authorised InGen to pursue the creation of a genetic hybrid; a collation of the most entertaining traits of other dinosaurs into a single, new breed. It was this research that eventually saw the creation of the Indominus Rex.

Production Notes

Jurassic World


In the drafts of the script written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, the theme park retained the name Jurassic Park from its predecessor, it was not until the script was rewritten by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connelly that it was changed to Jurassic World.
