For the promotion of Jurassic World, a website was made for Masrani Global, the company operating the theme park. On that site, there is a simulated computer terminal one can log onto. What can be found on that terminal?


The link takes you straight to a "logged in session" on the terminal. Should you want to go through the main site and log in yourself, the password is (case-insensitive)

Indominus

    Love how the HTML tile of the terminal is "Masrani Backdoor" :-)

After downloading the Javascript powering it, it seems it has the following commands and subcommands:

  • help displays a help message (also works in submenus)
  • assets allows to query the assets: the animals kept at the park. Names of animals can be entered, displaying a translation of its name and opening a (now defunct) link to the animal on JurassicWorld.com.
    • ankylosaurus
    • apatosaurus
    • baryonyx
    • dimorphodon
    • edmontosaurus
    • gallimimus
    • indominus rex or indominus
    • metriacanthosaurus
    • microceratus
    • mosasaurus
    • pachycephalosaurus
    • parasaurolophus
    • pteranodon
    • stegosaurus
    • suchomimus
    • triceratops
    • tyrannosaurus rex or tyrannosaurus
    • velociraptor or raptor
  • query allows to query objects, which seems a catch-all for persons, locations, companies, and objects.
    • diabolus rex

I REMEMBER THINKING THIS WAS THE RESULT OF PURE IMAGINATION REINFORCED BY THE UNDERSTANDING THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. PEOPLE OFTEN TALK ABOUT HOW MAN CANNOT FLY WITHOUT AN AIRCRAFT, HOWEVER IF YOU REMOVE GRAVITY MAN CAN FLY WITHOUT AID OF ANYTHING. IT'S ALL ABOUT PERSPECTIVE. I KNOW NOW, MORE THAN EVER, THAT OUR SPECIES HAS UNLIMITED CAPABILITIES. HOLDING THAT YOUNG ANIMAL WAS A WAKE UP CALL. IF WE DREAM OF IT, WE CAN ACHIEVE IT.
