San Diego Zoo or Jurassic World?

I’m entering my third year as a San Diego Zoo passholder and after going this weekend for the first time since the release of Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, I noticed that certain aspects of the zoo reminded me of the film. This makes sense of course, Jurassic World is a zoo, but instead of exotic animals from the four corners of the globe, it houses dinosaurs. The Jurassic World website also took a few cues from the San Diego Zoo site anyway so I can’t help myself in imagining the zoo being filled with dinosaurs as I wandered the grounds on a sunny Sunday afternoon in August.
