So we know that all four Jurassic movies take place in the same world.

We also know that the theme parks both exist on the same island, but that The Lost World was on a different one.

Of course, it is relatively easy to see that the park had a bloody history - there were numerous deaths and injuries at Jurassic Park, and the related animals caused havoc among other groups.

That said, has this number been quantified? Is there any indication how many people have actually been killed or injured across the Jurassic Park/World franchise?

    @Valorum - Was the typo in "mistake" intentional? (If so, kudos: because a mistake in the spelling of "mistake-free" is awesome.) – Ghotir Jul 14 '16 at 20:59
  • @Ghotir - That's the first mistake that's ever happened at Jurassic World 2. – Valorum Jul 14 '16 at 21:04

Grand total = 50(ish) depending on how you choose to count the boat crews.

Jurassic Park
Surprisingly non-bloody. There were only a few guests and most of the park's staff had already left. In the film, the death count was a measly 5. If you're a book fan, you can add an extra 1, with John Hammond getting et.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park
A bit more exciting, largely due to the presence of a clueless (and apparently delicious) mercenary army. When most of them got splattered, it brought the number up to a gore-friendly 17.

Jurassic Park III
Truly disappointing in every way, including bodycount (7). Everyone knows it's supposed to go up, not down.

Jurassic World
Doesn't disappoint. Not only is it the most expensive of the four films, it was also the bloodiest with a total death-count of 22.

How Dangerous is Jurassic Park/World?

If we take Disneyland as a comparable attraction, in its 50+ year history, the total number of directly attributable guest deaths is less than 10, including the resort's hotels and car parks. During that period, some 100,000,000 have visited the park and its environs, indicating a chance of dying during a visit to be around 0.00001%

Jurassic World was open for 10 years years and has an average of 25000 visitors per day. Based on the number of guest deaths seen (2), the average chance of dying during a visit is around 0.000001%, making Jurassic World safer than Disneyland.

    @Skooba - Yes, I've been through the "all the deaths" youtube video and recounted. I've also discounted any dino deaths and any deaths that aren't seen (or heard) on screen, however I've added a few for the boat crews since they were almost certainly 3-5 people, not one. – Valorum Jul 14 '16 at 18:50

    fwiw - Malcolm died in the first book as well, only to be brought back in the second book – NKCampbell Mar 29 '18 at 20:26

    @NKCampbell - I presume he was merely pretending to be dead to get sympathy – Valorum Mar 29 '18 at 20:30
