The Dino-sized festivities for Jurassic Park's 30th anniversary will continue this month at San Diego Comic-Con with an immersive installation inspired by the game-changing blockbuster. It's the absolute perfect setting, given the fact that John Hammond's greedy nephew, Peter Ludlow (Arliss Howard), tried to set up a version of the park in San Diego before a fully-grown Tyrannosaurus rex terrorized the Southern California town and devoured Jurassic Park/The Lost World screenwriter David Koepp.

Organized by Universal Products & Experiences and Amblin Entertainment — they spared no expense, course! — the two-day experience set to be held between July 21 and July 22 recreates iconic moments from the 1993 original, including the Dilophosaurus attack and Donald Gennaro's ill-fated trip to the restroom just outside the T. rex paddock. As the great and powerful Ian Malcolm once said: "When you gotta go, you gotta go." The good news is that you can void your bladder here and live to tell the tale.

On July 17, Universal announced that the event will take place at the Luce Cielo event venue, a few blocks from the Convention Center, beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 8 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. As of the July 17 update, both days rounds of free tickets are sold out, but there will be a standby line at the venue from 2-7 p.m. on both days, if you feel like trying your luck at a timeslot.

And if the grisly sight of genetically-engineered abominations snacking on human flesh makes you hungry for some reason, there will be plenty of dino-nuggies (courtesy of John Soules) nearby to satiate one's inner Velociraptor. Once you've filled up on those scrumptious prehistoric victuals, be sure to stop by the Visitor's Center for a plethora of exclusive 30th anniversary merchandise.
