For the 30th anniversary of Jurassic Park, guests heading to Universal can visit the Tribute Store, which is decorated in Jurassic Park theme. Guests can get up close and personal with items that were in the films and have photo moments to commemorate the milestone.

Jurassic Park, directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg and based on Michael Crichton’s novel, captured the hearts of audiences thirty years ago. The original film set a new standard for visual effects and immersive storytelling. Set on the fictional Isla Nublar, the movie introduces us to the visionary character John Hammond (who Guests can meet at Universal right now), played by Sir Richard Attenborough, who creates a theme park filled with genetically resurrected dinosaurs. Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are invited to the park to endorse its safety, but chaos ensues when the power fails, and the dinosaurs run amok. With its groundbreaking use of computer-generated imagery, Jurassic Park brought dinosaurs to life in a way never seen before, delivering heart-stopping action and suspense that has stood the test of time.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary, one famous part of Jurassic Park has been recreated. The scene where the children can hear and feel the T-rex coming closer due to her jello shaking has been revisited. In a TikTok video, the actress who played the little girl does a great job of recreating the original scene, wobbly dessert and all.
