With the rustling of trees overhead and the soft grass under your feet, The Zoo transforms into Isla Nublar for a night, where John Hammond and his brainy geneticists have done the unthinkable and created both an island of dinosaurs and unimaginable chaos. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough and one iconic spoonful of jelly, Steven Spielberg's Jurassic epic will reanimate before your eyes. So hold onto your butts – because once the gates open, there's no turning back.
