Visit Jurassic World

The world's greatest theme park


  • Welcome to Isla Nublar: Raised banners proudly stand tall in welcoming visitors upon their arrival to Jurassic World on Isla Nublar.


  • Simon Masrani helps to construct the safest theme park in the world.

    Soon after the acquisition of InGen in 1998, Simon Masrani looked to work at a plan that seemed impossible given the circumstances of the years preceding - the control and re-invention of a new theme park on Isla Nublar. Experts from the Masrani company were collected together, along with Dr. Henry Wu from the InGen company, to plan for the greatest theme park and attractions ever constructed in humankind's history.

    Simon Masrani used subsidaries Axis Boulder Engineering and Timack Construction to work on the preparation and planning prior to construction on the island. Construction workers were protected from native wildlife by InGen security over the course of the three years from 2002 until completion in 2004. With over $1.2 billion alone spent in concrete and building materials, this project was never underestimated.

    "The most incredible thing about the project for me was the fact that we were able to construct so far off the mainland, while maintaining all deadlines", explains Jurassic World Project Manager Mr. Eli Jacobs. "The logistics and the planning were just incredible. Security teams, perimeter fencing, scientists, quarantine zones ... it was quite the atmosphere."

    Simon Masrani was taking no chance.

    Simon adds, "The sense of security proved vital in the establishment of Jurassic World. The media were having a frenzy at the time, conservation groups around the globe were looking and waiting for any incident to tarnish our reputation to try and take Isla Nublar away from us. We had to set a feeling of safety, for when the time came for opening in 2005, we had to ensure people were willing to come."

    And come they did ... Jurassic World officially opened in June 2005 to an incredible 98,120 visitors in its first month of operation.


  • New concepts unveiled: Claire Dearing, Senior Assets Manager at Jurassic World, speaks from Isla Nublar, Costa Rica.


  • The future of Jurassic World.

    Masrani’s flagship enterprise opened in 2005 to record-breaking numbers. A state-of-the-art theme park and biological preserve, it has lead the way in entertainment, education and scientific discovery. But what is on the horizon? Claire Dearing, Senior Assets Manager at Jurassic World discusses her thoughts.

    "Scientists are often challenged by the risks involved in executing grand concepts," explains Claire. "Many at InGen doubted the likelihood of a successful hybrid, but here we are just one month away and she's more than we imagined. We will closely monitor visitor response and gauge the consumer's appetite for future experiences, taking Jurassic World into a new era."

    "But as we seek to recreate the past, we can't forget to innovate", Claire adds. "We have several new rides in the conceptual phase with Axis Boulder. Our most evolved, the 'Treetop Gazers', has an ETA sometime in 2018."

Protecting Nublar

An appreciation for the history.

Officially discovered in 1525 by Spanish navigator Diego Fernandez, the naming of Isla Nublar is often credited to cartographer Nicolas de Huelva, who, on the Spanish carrack La Estrella (The Star) described seeing a "cloud island" while mapping the western coast of Costa Rica.

The Spaniards learned the existance of a local indigenous tribe to the island, known as the Bribri tribe. The natives referred to the island locally as Guá-Si (Water House, or, House beyond Water) and themselves as Tun-Si (Water Men).

Four centuries of history displaced many of the local inhabitants, and in 1987 those few remaining were resettled off the island. The Masrani company wish to acknowledge the indigenous Bribri tribe and the contributions they have made to the history and culture of Isla Nublar.


Respecting local wildlife.

There are a wide variety of animals native to Isla Nublar. Most common is the Elaphodus cephalophus nublarus (Nublar Tufted Deer). This 2 foot tall mammal is mostly nocturnal, although they have been studied grazing under the darkest patches of the jungle canopy during daylight hours.

Around the coasts of Nublar hundreds of birds stop to rest on their long migrations. The largest being the Pelecanus occidentalis (Brown Pelican) whose impressive wing span reaches 8 feet in length on average.

The Masrani company, together with InGen, have worked together to ensure the protection of these animals. A historical agreement was signed in 2005 with the Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society to ensure the safety and habitat of the indigenous wildlife of Isla Nublar.

Sustainability for the environment.

Masrani have been working together with InGen to ensure environmental sustainability is kept on Isla Nublar to help protect the local plant-life. Energy-saving and waste-saving methods have been installed across the island, with strict regulations to all visitors and park staff.

The inclusion of over 750 blue recycling bins across the island, including a local recycling facility, is testimony to the specific requirements set in place by the Costa Rican government and by the Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society.

An estimated 35% of the power on Isla Nublar is solar-powered, with the other 65% being powered by geo-thermal energy produced from the activity of Mount Sibo in the north of the island. Jurassic World ensures that clean sources of energy are used with low emissions.
