Universal Celebrates 30 Years of Jurassic Park


June 12, 2023

On June 11, 1993, the film that launched it all, Jurassic Park, opened in theaters nationwide, and launched a new era of filmmaking featuring unforgettable characters and dinosaurs who won our hearts from the opening song and scene. The original film earned over $1 billion at the box office, and prompted five Universal Pictures franchise blockbusters, including 2022’s Jurassic World Dominion, which quickly crossed the $1 billion mark. As Jeff Goldblum’s character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, says in the original film, “Life finds a way.” Just three years later, Jurassic Park first opened at Universal Studios Florida and since then is now featured in theme parks in Orlando, Hollywood, Osaka, and Beijing.  

 With global theme park attractions, popular merchandise items for fans of all ages, the DreamWorks animated series Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous and more, the beloved franchise has made a dino-sized footprint across NBCUniversal. 

At Universal Orlando Resort, fans will find exclusive Jurassic Park 30th anniversary merchandise and collectibles at the Jurassic Park Tribute Store, themed food and drink items from Thunder Falls, and on the weekend of June 9th, can enjoy commemorative film screenings at Universal Cinemark in CityWalk.  Universal Studios Hollywood honors the landmark movie with its popular Jurassic World — The Ride. Fans will also find exclusive merchandise, themed food items, and anniversary film screenings. 

For Jurassic fans, there is no shortage of ways to celebrate #JurassicJune. Invite some friends, dress up in your favorite dino-fashion, immerse yourself in an award-winning Jurassic themed attraction and when you get home, extend the celebration by streaming Jurassic Park and Jurassic World trilogies now available to rent or purchase by Universal Home Entertainment.    

With so many #JurassicJune opportunities to experience, ride, collect and consume, what are you waiting for?
