How much would it cost to build Jurassic Park?

Yes, Jurassic Park could happen in real life.

No, not the dinosaur bit. We would tell you why, but we don't have the necessary understanding of biochemistry, DNA composition or artificial insemination to patronise you adequately. Just rest assured that when Ross from Friends says it can't happen, it can't happen.

But that's only one small (large) aspect of the grand spectacle of John Hammond's (or rather, Michael Crichton's) vision. Part of the magic that surrounds Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic adaptation is in grounding the dino-fantasy in real-world proportions: the park is essentially a bigger, technologically fancier version of Disney World. If you wanted to build the Park, you could.

So how much would it cost to construct a resort on a par with that of the original Jurassic film? The exacting minds of the Jurassic Park Fansite have crunched through the fictional numbers to produce a real-life cost for building the island-based attraction.

Hold on to your butts.
