1 What island is "Jurassic World" on?
Answer: Isla Nublar

The theme park is set on the very same island "Jurassic Park" was on. Interesting note is that the other islands are located on an archipelago called Las Cinco Muertes along with Isla Pena and Isla Matanceros. In "The Lost World", when Kelly sneaks on one of the trailers, she looks at the map where the group is headed and that's where those names came from. If you're fluent in Spanish, you'll know that Las Cinco Muertes means Five Deaths.

28 In "Jurassic Park 3", viewers see which dinosaur kill Mr. Udesky?
Answer: Velociraptor

The last main character to die in "Jurassic Park 3", Udesky's death occurs roughly halfway though the movie and is witnessed by viewers.

Whilst fleeing a pack of Velociraptors, Udesky is separated from the rest of the group and (surprise!) runs into a pair of raptors. Viewers later see Udesky lying on the ground, apparently dead, but then he moves, indicating that he's actually still alive. However, nothing is what it seems. As other characters attempt to help him, the raptors suddenly return and it becomes clear that they've actually set a trap to lure in an unsuspecting victim. One raptor then seizes Udesky's head and snaps his neck.

In "The Lost World: Jurassic Park", Velociraptor was described as a two-metre-tall pack hunter with binocular vision, strong arms and killing claws on both feet. Unfortunately, this description was only partially correct as the real-life version was much smaller and covered in feathers. In "Jurassic Park 3" the raptors are mentioned a couple of times before they're actually seen.
    Your options: [ Velociraptor ] [ Allosaurus ] [ Suchomimus ] [ Compsognathus ]

Answer: Claw the walls and hide her presence in the pen

First, the Indominus claws at the walls and leaves marks. Then, it uses a combination of camouflage and hiding her body heat so they couldn't readily find her.

A tracking implant shows that the Indominus is still in the pen and she is able to escape before they can close the big doors.
