Steven Spielburg has brought the world another installment of of the mega hit Jurassic Park. This time the hideous dinosaurs are in a futuristic theme park called Jurassic World. The movie shows Kauai’s Napali coast, the¬†waterfalls, forest and mountains. Naturally, Kauai’s Tourism Board staff members are thrilled.

They are so happy, in fact that they created a special video just to thank him for giving the island a leading role in the movie.

 

If that wasn’t enough, they also made a gigantic sign to let him know how grateful they are.
