Raptors keep a beady eye on the commuters of London’s Waterloo station ahead of the Jurassic World launch.
Amongst the hustle and bustle of Waterloo Station you’ll find the usual mix of commuters, tourists and pigeons and… velociraptors. For two weeks the station, which serves as a major artery for London’s overground and underground train networks, has been transformed into one big advertisement for Universal Pictures’ blockbuster summer movie, Jurassic World. Dubbed #JurassicWaterloo you’ll find advertisements for the film adorning almost every available space of wall and floor whilst in the centre of the main concourse sits the focal point – A damaged transportation unit with four ferocious looking velociraptors standing guard. Onlookers are encouraged to snap pictures with the dinosaurs and post them with the hashtag #JurassicWaterloo. If you’re lucky your twitter and instagram messages will be displayed on the huge screen looming over the concourse.
There’s more! Placed around the station you’ll find other attractions as well as a gift shop selling the original three Jurassic Park movies as well as tickets to see Chris Pratt star in Jurassic World. Visit www.jurassic.london on your smartphone and you can take a guided audio tour of the attractions at the station.
It’s not a full day’s worth of entertainment, but it will keep me amused this week as I explore on my lunch break.
Jurassic World is in cinemas from Thursday 11th, you can buy tickets from jurassictickets.co.uk
