A quick note about the Jurassic Park Discovery Center: The Discovery Center is being used as the exit for the VelociCoaster and hosts The Burger Digs restaurant, as well as a gift shop. There is plenty to do in the Jurassic Park Discovery Center; however, many of the interactive sections in the bottom level are not operating right now.
