An Easter egg hinting at the Jurassic Park 30th anniversary Tribute Store has appeared in the window of Studio Styles at Universal Studios Florida.
Jurassic Park Tribute Store Hint
Studio Styles is the new entrance to the Universal Studios Florida Tribute Store. The highly-themed store is redecorated each season for a different Universal IP or holiday.
The hint in the righthand window is a single metal ladle — a reference to the iconic kitchen scene in 1993’s “Jurassic Park.” In the scene, Tim accidentally knocks a ladle to the ground, alerting the Velociraptors to his position. Moments later, Lex uses a different ladle to distract the raptors. Watch the full scene below.
Jurassic Park 30th Anniversary Tribute Store
The new Tribute Store will celebrate 30 years since the iconic “Jurassic Park” was released in 1993 and is set to feature a look inside the film’s sets rather than transport you into the film itself.
Rumor has it the new shop will open near the end of May, consistent with the Classic Movies Tribute Store last year. That store opened on May 26, 2022, and featured rooms based on “Back to the Future,” “JAWS,” and “E.T.”
Keeping in step with the film’s 30th Anniversary, Universal Orlando Resort is also offering an exclusive magnet to Universal Orlando Annual Passholders themed to the franchise starting next month.

Jurassic Park at Universal Parks Worldwide
There are of course so many ways to experience the world of Jurassic Park at Universal Orlando Resort and at other Universal Parks worldwide! Here at Universal Orlando, there’s an entire land dedicated to the franchise at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
The three main attractions are Jurassic Park River Adventure, which sails you through the park to encounter various dinosaurs, Pteranodon Flyers, a kids-only journey above the skies of kiddie area Camp Jurassic, and the newest addition to the park — Jurassic World VelociCoaster! This exciting coaster takes you on a journey through the velociraptor paddock at Jurassic World and is the first ride at Universal Orlando to be based on the latest trilogy of “Jurassic” films, featuring appearances by Chris Pratt as Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing.
Across the country at Universal Studios Hollywood, the Jurassic Park attraction got a heavy retheme at that park to become Jurassic World: The Ride. Featuring a combination of screen effects and audio-animatronics, the ride is still largely the same, taking guests on a tour through Jurassic World. But now at the ride’s exciting climax, you come face-to-face with the impressive Indominus Rex animatronic!
At Universal Studios Japan, a mirrored clone of Jurassic Park: The Ride opened with the park in 2001, and a flying coaster called The Flying Dinosaur lets guests experience the thrill of soaring above the skies with a pteranodon. It’s often described as one of the most intense coasters at any Universal park!
Universal Studios Singapore features a unique take on the Jurassic Park River Adventure attraction, with a circular raft system similar to Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom rather than boats. There’s also a short Pteranodon Flyers-like attraction called Canopy Flyers which all ages can ride.
Finally, at Universal Studios Beijing, two completely original attractions were created for the park based on the newer trilogy. Jurassic World Adventure is an indoor dark ride that takes guests on a journey through Isla Nubar complete with an animatronic dinosaur chasing riders! And Jurassic Flyers takes guests on a soaring journey above the island, in a much more thrill ride sense than in Orlando or Singapore.
