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.
