Jurassic World’s park cams now feature a lot of running and screaming

jurassic world park cams cam
Back in February, Universal Pictures accompanied the launch of the official Jurassic World website with a group of “park cams” that let fans take a look at various areas of the dinosaur-filled theme park. Up until recently, the video feeds showed park staff cleaning out dinosaur pens or working in the labs, and park attendees lining up for various attractions.

However, just as Ian Malcolm predicted back in the original Jurassic Park, that semblance of order is eventually replaced by a lot of running and screaming — and now the JurassicWorld.com video feeds offer a very different perspective on the events happening “live” at the park.

As expected, this week’s premiere of Jurassic World was accompanied by a drastic change-up of the video that had been looping in the park cams, with shots of happy guests wandering the park’s main thoroughfare now replaced with video of people scrambling for cover and falling over each other to get off the street.

Similarly, the behind-the-scenes video of the park’s staff working diligently in the dinosaurs’ enclosures and the park’s laboratory is now filled with choppy clips of employees running and, yes, screaming as they attempt to find safety. Several other feeds are completely down, likely due to something with sharp teeth wreaking havoc on the park’s surveillance system.

Among all of these frantic video clips, however, the most eerie transition might be the one seen in the cameras that were recording views of the “Gyrosphere” and other attractions where guests were initially seen queueing up in long lines. Those attractions are now shown standing empty, with the wind blowing through what appears to be a hastily abandoned area of the park.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World unfolds 22 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park. The film stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help), Ty Simpkins (Insidious), Jake Johnson (Let’s Be Cops), Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), BD Wong (Jurassic Park), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Lauren Lapkus (Blended), and Andy Buckley (Bridesmaids).

Jurassic World arrives in standard, 3D, and IMAX theaters June 12.
