1. Whit Hertford, who played the kid that didn't think raptors were scary, was also Walter "Duckface" Berman in Full House.
Anyone else think he should totally reprise his role in Fuller House?
2. Alan and Ellie have a sign that says "No animal released without paperwork completely filled out" hanging in their trailer.
3. They also have a cardboard cutout of a kitten.
If the movie was set in 2015 they'd probably be watching cat videos on YouTube in between digs.
4. This is definitely not San Jose, Costa Rica.
San Jose is actually located toward the middle of Costa Rica. The city is surrounded by mountains from all angles and doesn't have any beaches.
5. There's a bit of foreshadowing during the helicopter ride when Alan finds a way to secure himself despite having two female buckles on his seatbelt.
You know, just like how the dinosaurs are able to reproduce despite being bred as only females.
6. The actor who played Dr. Henry Wu went on to provide the voice of Shang in Mulan.
BD Wong is reprising his role in the upcoming Jurassic World, but sadly there's no word yet on if he'll be participating in the upcoming Mulan live-action film.
7. In the dining room we see corporate slides that suggest Hammond anticipated Jurassic Park becoming more popular than both "sports" and "zoos."
8. He was also planning to expand internationally, including a Jurassic Park Europe.
Hey, maybe that could be the plot for a future film in the franchise?
9. The iconic entrance to the park is pretty much a tour prop, since the fence doesn't encircle anything.
The fencing literally ends like three feet from the gate.
10. Dennis was a fan of Jolt.
Stealing embryos requires a lot of energy!
11. And the movie Jaws.
12. There's a potted plant and light chilling in the tyrannosaur paddock.
13. Ian dives headfirst through the bathroom door in order to avoid being eaten by the tyrannosaurus.
14. Then puts a tourniquet on his own leg.
15. If you look closely, you can see the reflection of something moving in the hubcap before Alan climbs the tree to rescue Tim.
Many suspect it's the reflection of a camera person, but I think it's more fun to imagine he was being stalked by a stealthy dinosaur. A stealthosaurus, if you will.
16. When Alan is sleeping in the tree with Lex and Tim his shoes are perfectly clean despite having hiked through dirt and mud.
17. The Making of Jurassic Park is a real book written by Don Shay and Jody Duncan.
18. Hammond seems to have discovered perpetual motion.
If the power was out, how else would you explain ceiling fans that never stop spinning?
19. The survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 played golf in the same valley where Alan and the kids were chased by dinosaurs.
Like literally. Both Jurassic Park and Lost filmed at Kualoa Ranch in Oahu, Hawaii.
20. We see Ellie pushing the "VISITORS CNTR CONTROL RM" button twice.
Once before a shot of Tim hanging from the perimeter fence, then again after.
