"Roll around with our dinosaurs in our glass-encased Gyrosphere. "
—Park Map(src)

The Gyrosphere is a sphere shaped ride in Jurassic World that takes tourists around an area with over 30 species, including Ankylosaurus, Apatosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops.

The Gyrosphere reaches speeds of 5 mph and has a built-in computer monitor to identify the prehistoric wildlife that can be observed. To prevent harassing the animals, the vehicle will automatically roll backwards toward a safe distance if it is too close to an animal. Advanced invisible fence technology keeps the animals that are observed from roaming astray without the use of cages and bars that are unnecessary.[1] According to Jimmy Fallon in the Gyrosphere instruction video, the glass is able to stop a 50 caliber bullet and can protect the guest from the venomous spit of a Dilophosaurus.[2]


The Evolution of ClaireEdit

The Gyrosphere was developed with new technology as a way of improving on the park tour of the original park and as a way for visitors to get extremely close to the animals without any significant danger. The exhibit initially held the Ankylosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Gallimimus, Parasaurolophus, and Triceratops. An initial problem with the gyrospheres was that the dinosaurs, namely the youngest Brachiosaur Pearl, would mistake them for toys and play around with them. The interns developed a solution by painting certain gyrospheres that would be used as toys so the animals wouldn't attack the guest. [3]

Jurassic WorldEdit

Gyrosphere 07 was used by Zach and Gray on their visit to Jurassic World. Zack and Gray saw an opening in the perimeter fence and went in where they saw several Ankylosaurus. While in there, the park's newest attraction, Indominus rex attacked. The Ankylosaurs ran to avoid the fight, hitting the Gyrosphere on their way, but the Indominus rex was able to get one, although it put up a fight and even smacked the I. rex in the head, but the I. rex slashes its legs and flips the Ankylosaurus over and kills it. The Indominus resumed attacking the two brothers by piercing her mid talon into the glass and rotating it so the boys could see their demise. She then attempted to chomp the Gyrosphere whole but gets her mouth stuck, but attempts to smash it several times into the ground to crack it open, but the two brothers escaped by getting out of their damaged Gyrosphere and jumping off a waterfall.

Shortly afterward, the Indominus attacked a herd of Apatosaurus, killing five and fatally injuring one before moving on into the restricted area of Isla Nublar, leaving their bodies uneaten.

Owen Grady and Claire Dearing found these Apatosaurus and comforted the injured dinosaur, settling her down when she attempted to rise up, upon which she died peacefully. The death of such a harmless and docile creature caused Claire much sorrow, which was mixed with horror when they discovered the five dead ones. The discovery of these Apatosaurs made Owen realize that the Indominus was hunting for sport.[2]

Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomEdit

When the volcano erupted three years later, Owen, Clare, and Franklin Webb, while looking for Owen's only surviving raptor, took shelter behind a weathered Gyrosphere to avoid getting trampled by a stampede consisting of Allosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Carnotaurus, Compsognathus, Gallimimus, Pteranodon, Sinoceratops, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and the T. rex of Isla Nublar.

LEGO Jurassic WorldEdit

LEGO DimensionsEdit

The Gyrosphere will appear in the game LEGO Dimensions. It can only be unlocked by purchasing the Jurassic World team pack and inserting the piece into the "portal" that comes with the game.

Jurassic World: EvolutionEdit

The Gyrosphere will appear in the game. Much like the Safari Adventure in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, a Gyro Station needs to be built on the fence so that the player can add path around the enclosure that the Gyrosphere can follow around to get a better look at the dinosaurs.

LEGO Jurassic WorldEdit

Gyrospheres appear in the LEGO Jurassic World sets 75919 Indominus rex Breakout and 75916 Dilophosaurus Ambush.
