Jurassic Park is one of the family’s favorite films that can appeal to all ages. Where is the shooting location?
Showing the size of the dinosaurs, Jurassic Park films usually choose hills that are so wide and beautiful. So, here are 10 Jurassic Park shooting locations that you can visit:
- Na Pali Beach, Kauai
Kauai is the fourth largest island in Hawaii. In the film, the island is shown as the fictional Isla Nublar, where dinosaurs were raised and roamed free.
One of the most stunning locations is Na Pali Beach. Tourists can take a charter boat to see the towering cliffs or take a helicopter tour to see it from above.
- Red Rock Canyon State Park
Red Rock Canyon State Park is in California. This is where Dr Grant’s cast in the film explains how terrifying a raptor described as a six-foot turkey can be. At this destination, a traveler can go on an adventure by hiking or camping.
- Kipu Kai, Kauai
Kipu Kai Beach has a two-mile stretch of sand that is so stunning. Here comes the scene where the Bowman family is attacked by an army of hungry little dinosaurs.
This beach is also a shooting location for “The Descendants”. The best way to get there is by water.
- Halona Beach
In the Jurassic World 3 film set, actors named Owen, Claire and Franklin are stranded in the ‘Fallen Kingdom’. They looked like they were on a deserted stretch of coastline, but in fact it was Halona Beach which was quite popular.
