As you enter through the Huge Stone Archway guests are immediately in the action of one the best films ever produced Jurassic Park. The Discovery Center in Jurassic Park is divided into two areas.  The top floor is quick service dining at “The Burger Digs”, and a unique gift shop the “DinoStore”. Just as you have seen in the film Jurassic Park, there is a large spiral staircase that winds past two suspended dinosaur skeletons. These skeletons are actual props from the film ‘Jurassic Park’.   On the lower floor, you will find several interactive experiences.  One area allows guests to look through a viewfinder to see how a dinosaur would actually see. Guests are also able to make noises to hear what the dinosaur would sound like.

Like trivia then the game called “You Bet Jurassic” is just what you need to play. This is a fast paced, three-player trivia, game that has four rounds, and only takes about 5 minutes to play. If you think waiting in line will give you an advantage think again, because there are 5 versions of the game.

Just like in Jurassic Park films there is a hatchery along the back wall of the lower level of the Discovery Center is. There guests will find computers to analyze dinosaur eggs. Place an egg in the analyzer, and discover what kind of dinosaur is inside. In the center of the back wall, you will see several eggs being rotated. One of the scientists will come out to check on them. They will announce that one of the eggs is starting to hatch, and is totally worth waiting, as this is remarkable sight to see. You won’t believe you eyes.
