JP Extinction was one of the six scarezones that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights: Islands of Fear. It was located in Jurassic Park.

History and Location[edit | edit source]

Originally in 2002, when Cindy was planned to be the icon for the Halloween Horror Nights even that year, there would be a scarezone titled Jurassic Park. Universal would create an original tie-in story with the Jurassic Park film franchise for this scarezone and a haunted house located in the same area, in which a mad scientist named Dr. Burton mixed human and dinosaur DNA to create human-dinosaur hybrids. To help build the scarezone, Universal would use props from The Boneyard.

The scarezone would be located in the Jurassic Park area of Islands of Adventure. The area is based on the famous island from the Jurassic Park movies, and has many trees and bushes. Jurassic Park is located between Toon Lagoon and The Lost Continent. Due to the linear nature of Islands of Adventure, this was designed to be the fourth scarezone guests would enter.

After Cindy was scrapped as the icon, the scarezone would be renamed into JP Extinction (which was the original name of the haunted house featured in this area). Other than the name change, the story of the scarezone and the scareactors would largely stay the same.

Description[edit | edit source]

The power is out. The gates are down. Packs of carnivorous dinosaurs are loose in the park...and there's something very strange, very deadly stalking you as well!

Scarezone[edit | edit source]

Roaming the streets were various Dino-Men. Some were regular men with dinosaur heads and others were a complete fusion of the two. There were also people camouflaged with the surrounding plants and Velociraptor puppets.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first scarezone located in Jurassic Park.
  • The concept of the human-dinosaur hybrids is very reminiscent to an unused early pitch version of Jurassic Park IV.
  • The original concept of the scarezone, simply titled "Jurassic Park", mentions heavy thunder, power outages, live snakes held in a cage at the entrance with many other empty cages implying a breakout, a wrangler trying to recapture escaped animals into a "rickety" crate, cavemen (including some with dinosaur features), emergency beacons, snapping power lines, spitting and licking Dino-Men, and manimals (experimental rejects) with chainsaws. It is unknown whether any of these appeared in the scarezone.
  • The original concept also said that the Jurassic Park River Adventure ride would feature a toxic waste spill, creating mutated dinosaurs that would attack guests.
