Jurassic Park is a rail shooter arcade game developed and released by Sega in 1994. It is based on the 1993 film of the same name. The game cabinet resembles the rear of the Ford Explorer tour vehicles used in the film. The player, equipped with a joystick, must shoot dinosaurs that appear on-screen throughout the game.
The game includes a moving seat, also used in Sega’s 1991 light gun shooter Rail Chase. The seat is powered by hydraulic pistons to move the seat according to the action on the screen. The game’s graphics blend two-dimensional sprites and three-dimensional polygons to give a sense of movement. Jurassic Park was the first game of this genre to include 3D environments.
The game was followed by two arcade sequels, The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1997, and Jurassic Park III in 2001. Another arcade game, titled Jurassic Park Arcade, was released in 2015 and is based on the first three films in the Jurassic Park series.
