Theme Park Connection, known for selling lots of rare items from Disney’s theme parks, is offering what could be one of the most iconic pieces in Universal’s film history.
It is the Velociraptor cage from the opening scene of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park and tucked inside of the cage is a prop dinosaur. Not to mention in their other auctions you can find the RV from the 1997 The Lost World: Jurassic Park film.
Theme Park Connection is known for bringing memories to folks and this prop fits into the companies mold. Brian Ramsey, General Manager says “We want to be able to connect people with items that really play on your emotions, maybe it’s a prop from your favorite park attraction, a toy from your youth or something that you can relive and remind you of a specific time or memory. Well this prop is no different, this can bring a person back to when they saw the original Jurassic Park movie for the first time in a huge way.”
The auction description tells it all; “In the auction you are bidding on one of the most recognizable props from Steven Spielberg’s 1993 worldwide hit Jurassic Park! This is the full-size animal transport cage crate featured in the terrifying opening scene of the classic blockbuster movie. It housed the Velociraptor that attacked and killed the ill-fated ‘gate keeper’ as Jurassic Park’s game warden and workers attempted to move the raptor into its permanent pen.”
