Jurassic Park Helipad

Thu Jan 15, 2004 3:06 am

I understand the scenes of JP are set in Hawaii, in the first film there was the great scene with the chopper (Dauphin i think) flying along Hawaii's coast, then preceeded by the vertical drop to the helipad.
Is the Helipad an actual real-life pad, or did they just mock one up for the film.
If it is a real pad, where in FS2002 can I find it, or is there a add-on for it.
Also in JP3 theres the airfield, does anyone know where that is too.
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..

Well for a chopper update it was either a Sikorsky S-76 or an Agusta A-109, my memory is faling me, definitely not a dauphin. Anywho not sure where the pad was actually located, but If i find a random pad in FS i'll let ya know.

Yeah it's not a real location. They went on location to one of Hawaii's more famous waterfalls, Manawaiopuna Falls, on Kauai. I've been there a few times and it's actually a set of multiple falls, Manawaiopuna being the tallest. There is a trail and clearing along the valley that leads up to the massive falls. There is no real helipad.

They constructed a temporary one for the film shoot. Thank god too, because Hawaii is already overly humanized for easy tourist access.
