Think back to 1993's Jurassic Park and what do you remember? Dinosaurs, yes. Water-filled glasses and Dr Ian Malcolm, sure. But what about the scenery?
The story's setting was Isla Nublar, purportedly an island of Costa Rica. However, much of the filming occurred in and around Hawaii and the island of Kauai in particular.
While not the opening scene, our first introduction to the fictitious island is via helicopter flight onto Isla Nublar; and the dramatic setting outside the aircraft becomes balanced against a bit of comedy within, as Dr Alan Grant showcases his ability to improvise - a cumbersome dad figure who struggles to put his seatbelt on correctly only to overcome the issue with a questionable half-knot.
Back to the scenery
The helicopter descends onto a small concrete pad under a magnificent, tiered waterfall.
That's the Manawaiopuna Falls in Kauai, now occasionally recognized as the Jurassic Falls.
In real life it's not some place you'd attempt to visit without a helicopter, and because it's private property you'd have to arrange an accredited helicopter tour in advance. But I don't think I'm alone in thinking that the site is worth a visit regardless your affinity to the Jurassic Park films!
