With the blockbuster film Jurassic World stomping all over box office records, Universal Orlando is wasting no time slapping the film's logo all over the parks, especially in the Jurassic Park area at Islands of Adventure. So far you'll find Jurassic World banners and logos plastered all over the Thunder Falls Terrace restaurant and Jurassic Outfitters gift shop. There's signage for all the different attractions you can experience at Jurassic World, such as the Gyrosphere ride seen in the film. Unfortunately though, there isn't (yet) an actual Gyrosphere ride here in Orlando. Maybe one day. There's also a few new pieces of merchandise for Jurassic World at the parks, including some exclusive items. Jurassic World theming has not yet made its way to the Discovery Center or River Adventure, perhaps to keep those attractions in line with the original film, but who knows how far they'll take the theming in the future. See the entire photo report below and stay tuned for more Jurassic sized updates!
Welcome to Jurassic World
Maybe it's because of the summer crowds, but it's nice to see Thunder Falls open for lunch again
Banners and logos all along the outside
It's like we're in the movie!
Perhaps because this restaurant is not mentioned in the first Jurassic Park film they felt it would be easy to slap Jurassic World all over it.

This guy's been in here for well over a decade. Used to be by the door but people kept breaking his sails off, so he lives on the counter now
Beautiful rotunda and dinosaur chandelier

Look at all these great sounding attractions that don't actually exist
After lunch let's go on the Egg Spinner ride and then view a T. rex feeding!
And of course. the Gyrosphere, which everyone is hoping Universal Creative is actually working on
Universal Japan might be getting an Aviary themed attraction
All of the columns have been wrapped in Jurassic World imagery

Funny and clever signage around the food lines
More adverts for fictional attractions
'Do not taunt, tease, or harass the animals.'
I do love the food at Thunder Falls. It's nice be able to get something different than just a burger and fries at a theme park. Glad to see it so busy and refreshed.
Jurassic Outfitters is located at the exit for the River Adventure ride. It's the biggest gift shop in Jurassic Park.
The banners really sell the Jurassic World concept. I wonder if we'll see some on the pathways one day?

Really busy, really hot summer day. So really long lines for the water rides.
I'm not waiting that. Maybe next visit.
Raptor Encounter got some new signs pointing people in the right direction
You know it's summertime when random ice cream stands are popping up
Pretty sure this Dip'n Dots stand wasn't here my last visit
