Jurassic Park is an amusement park/zoo from film and book of the same name. It created by InGen on Isla Nublar, featuring extinct animals such as dinosaurs as attractions. The animals were brought over from cloning facilities on nearby Isla Sorna. The park was planned to be opened in 1994. If the park was a success, a sister park would be built on an island near Europe.
The tours of different areas of the zoological park are called "rides". The park was set to open with the basic dinosaur tour (the Park Drive ride) which was in-progress when the Isla Nublar Incident started. The other rides were scheduled to come online within six-to-twelve months after the park was to be opened.
The attractions on Jurassic Park were built in phases. During the events of Jurassic Park only a basic tour was realised. The attractions that were planned to be finished at the opening of the park in 1994 are Phase I. Phase II are attractions that would have been finished and opened later.

During the events of Jurassic Park only a basic tour was open for visitors. Computer screens show that all dinosaur paddocks and fenches were located in the mid eastern part of the island. Seven paddocks are shown on screen and six paddocks are named in the menu.
- Brachiosaurus Enclosure (8 Brachiosaurus 10 Parasaurolophus)
- Animal Containment Unit (3 Velociraptors)
- Dilophosaurus Paddock (8 Dilophosaurus)
- Tyrannosaurus Paddock (1 Tyrannosaurus rex)
- Triceratops Paddock (5 Triceratops)
- Gallimimus Enclosure (25 Gallimimus)
- Herrerasaurus Paddock (6 Herrerasaurus)
- Pteranodon Aviary (3 Pteranodon)
This was the main attraction of the park. Officially Named "Park Drive", it is also commonly referred to as the Jurassic Park "Jeep Tour" or "Safari Adventure". It featured the electric Land Cruisers which followed tracks and visited each of the dinosaur enclosures on its self-guided tour. In keeping with the nonpolluting policies of Jurassic Park, these lightweight electric Land Cruisers were specially built by Toyota in Osaka. CD-ROMs inside the cruisers were controlled by the park motion sensors (if a certain dinosaur was detected within certain distance of the Jeep, the recorded voice in the CD would acknowledge it). The voice on the CD-ROMs giving the tour was that of Richard Kiley. The Land Cruisers also featured an intercom system for Cruiser-To-Cruiser communication as well as communication with the Control Room. The electric gearshifts on the cars seemed to be acting up slightly during the first tour (in the novel). The Tour started by the Land Cruisers passing through the infamous Jurassic Park Main Gate.
