How would you survive a Jurassic Park?

Postby stitch626 » Wed Sep 16, 2009 12:22 pm

In this scenario, the park has been open for weeks. Whats-his-name never had the chance to make a problem for the park, because he wasn't a greedy sob. You are a guest on a multi-day excursion. There are only a few hundred guests on the island at the moment.
Just as your tour returns to the visitor center, power dies. One of the security men went nuts and blew up the maintenance shed where the circuit breaker is (stupid design IMO, having it away from the main area). Thus power cannot be restored.
The helicopter isn't scheduled to return for 48 hours. And you can't call for help since there is no cell signal and without power the phones do not work.
How do you survive?

Ok lets go under the assumption that someone stupidly locked it.

I would go find the herbivores and bunk near them... i.e. the really BIG ones... and try to find small caves around the Island, or a really deep cave, either way. So only the small ones can get in, and use any weapons for defense. I realize theres a few huge flaws in my plan, but once that chopper arrives I'll be the first on the chopper. :wink:

*sigh* OK then, if we can get to the shotguns then grab them and find a room near the exit that's defensible and hole up there. If no access to weapons, hole up in the kitchen where we can at least get knives and brooms to make spears and barricade the room till help gets there.

Find the room that's the easiest to defend and barricade all the doors and windows, grabbing enough food to survive for a few days.

Wait, if were inside... I only read like half the OP :bangwall: :oops: ... then I would find any weapons and hole up inside, and then let the dinosaurs eat each other and kill each other and then when we leave, just nuke the place... :dinokill:

Weapons locker, Food, bunker, brace door, listen to the radios for any signal and then when the over due point comes and people come looking. Tell them what happen and where to pick me up at.

Is there a map of the place? I would do pretty much the same as everyone else but I would try to find a really good spot to hold up in. Maybe get a small group of survivors.

None. They always surrender right before they finish the job and never tell you why.

AFAIK, there's no official map of Isla Nublar. The best fan-made one I could find is this one, which is based primarily on the book.

Got a larger version of that Rochey?

Go to the visitor's center. Get every bit of food or firepower I can from the place then head up to the highest point in the complex I can find. barricade the doors and windows and wait. When the time comes for rescue I don't have to wander out on ground level, just head out a window and get picked up off the roof.

Bigger version. Dunno why the other one came out so small. :?
