It is important to note that even though I bought this at the store ($35.99), I first saw it on Walmart.com ($29.99). But we showed the cashier the price difference and I purchased this in-store for $29.99. This set is really cool, with lots of moving and functioning parts.
-It is very detailed. This set has the most detail I've ever seen. My favorite part is the locking door, but I'll get to that later.
- It has a good amount of minifigures, 4 in total. This includes
Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Tim Murphy, and Lex Murphy. These are all characters from the original Jurassic Park movie, but they don't look much like the actual characters.
-It has three areas for play: the Kitchen, the Embryo Storage Room, and the Main Control Room.
- The Kitchen is the second smallest area.
-It has a little table, a spoon rack, a counter, and a cupboard (just like actual kitchens).
-If you take the top of the cupboard off, you can manage to fit Tim into it. Lex won't fit unless you take off her hair piece.
-I find it a bit odd that no one, not even the adults, can even reach the top of the cupboard.
THE EMBRYO STORAGE ROOM:
-The Embryo Storage Room is the smallest area in the set.
-It has some neat details. There is a security camera, which I think is GREAT, an 'EMBRYO COLD STORAGE: RESTRICTED' sign, a guardrail, and of course the embryo machine itself. The little orange blobs are supposed to be embryos.
And lastly, the
MAIN CONTROL ROOM!
-This is my favorite area. It's also the biggest.
-It has a telephone, a locking door, a break-out window (for quick escape into the kitchen), and a computer with two monitors, a mouse, and a keyboard.
-The locking door is actually very easy to assemble. First you build the door itself. Then, you build the lock (which is just a knob connected to some LEGO Technic beams). If you push the red knob forward, then a beam slides into place and keeps any rampant Raptors who might be near out of the room.

I think this is a very nice set and it is definitely worth the price!
