Non Trek - Jurassic Park Jeep 18


#41

Upsetting to say the least … possibly confirmed by a friends friend who works at the park … http://themeparkuniversity.com/universal/universal-studios-hollywood-changes-jurassic-park-ride-jurassic-world-ride/

Why does the “March of Progress” always seems to trample so many?


#43

Steven Spielberg began designing and constructing the ride before the movie was even in production. He was super involved with the ride … I believe even a contract was written to disallow tampering with the ride … it’s upsetting personally to see such a inconic attraction be striped from its heritage … while I love the new film it is unfitting to see an incomparable film take over. I guess this strikes me hard because with all my favorite attractions being closed such as the twilight Zone tower of terror at Disneyland … and T2 3D at universal … it’s been hard on me … maybe cause I haven’t been around long enough to experience them


#44

Oh man, did not know how much we are losing- My wife and son are going to freak especially over the tower of terror, they are huge fans of it!


#45

The only update I have for now is the unexpected reproduction of baby jeeps … like tribbles … :wink:

I


#46

Am I crazy , yes … do I regret these purchases … no


#47

How are you doing with your Furby investments? (:


#48

Lol … good they are selling for 3x what I paid . So all in all it was a great investment


#49

Thought I’d update … haven’t done much to the Jeep unfortunately the engine has began to degrade or become “ tired “ as mechanics call it . I also made this Ingen sign as seen in the lost world as well as the studio tour at universal studios … I will be attending the 25 anniversary festivities this Friday as well :crossed_fingers:for some guest actor appearances . I will post photos from that event as well :grinning:

Nice job on the sign. I saw that the Lost World RV will be there too and they’ve gotten pretty far on it’s restoration now as well.


#52

Yep, I had the option to park my Jeep with 10 other vehicles and the RV, :cry: but SD to LA is a bit far for the condition of my engine. Never seen the RV in person so it will be fun to finally do so


#53

I got stripes … stripes around my fenders :notes:


#54

Still after a Ford Explorer too


#55

This is my favorite non Trek thread on this board. Love it!


#56

Thanks so much !


#57

Sharp!


#58

Oops forgot to share my trip to JP25 celebration at universal studios LA , here are some screen used props from the Jurassic franchise


#59

And it’s confirmed by uni that the JP ride will be converted to a Jurassic world themed attraction

Hey, I know you’ve got the raincoat, but have you put together a costume to go with this? Like the drivers that meet them at the helicopter or the triceratops vet?
