Disambiguation Links – Main Gate (IDW-DG)
The main gate of Jurassic Park was and still is one of the most iconic structures in the entire franchise. The gate opens electronically when vehicles approach and closes behind them. The gate is adorned with eight torches, with four on each side, to give a distinct safari feel to it. The gate’s immense size caused Dr. Ian Malcolm to joke about King Kong being kept in the park.
There is a manual override switch on the left-hand side of the gate, which allows the gate to be switched off from the electrical systems of the park and be manually pushed open. Dennis Nedry made use of this while trying to reach the east dock with the stolen embryos.
