After Hurricane Iniki flattened the sets on Kauai, the crew still had to get some footage for the Gallimimus Herd being attacked by the T-Rex. This was filmed near where the crew stayed at Kualoa Ranch, Kamehameha Highway, Ka’a’awa Valley, a place you can actually visit and some movie memorabilia still remains.

Other movies that used this film location are “Lost”, “Godzilla”, “Windtalkers” and “50 first dates”.

Welcome to Jurassic Park, the helicopter arrives through Hanapepe Valley, Kauai. Nowadays, all helicopter tours take you through here to relive the movie. From the aerial view you can also see the waterfalls that were used for the film. The waterfall where the ‘copter lands is in fact a different waterfall then where the landing pad was build (Manawaiopuna Falls).
